Cryogenic stage full-duration test tomorrow

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is set to achieve another major milestone tomorrow with the full duration test of the indigenous “cryogenic stage” rocket engine for its Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV).

The indigenous cryogenic stage would fire for 720 seconds at the Liquid Propulsions Systems Centre (LPSC) at Mahendragiri near Nagercoil tomorrow, marking a big leap from the 50-second successful test conducted on October 28 last year.

“The test will be a demonstration of indigenously developed cryogenic stage. The success of the test will enable us to use it in our future GSLV flights,” LPSC Director R V Perumal told PTI here.
