This remarkable flight marks the tenth mission of the esteemed GSLV, catapulting the advanced weather satellite, INSAT-3DR, weighing a whopping 2211 kg, into a Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO). Brace yourself for a journey that defies gravity and pushes the boundaries of possibility!
The GSLV is a true marvel, specially designed to launch satellites in the 2 - 2.5 Tonne class into GTO. It serves as the gateway to the heavens, unlocking new horizons of space exploration. On that momentous day, September 08, 2016, the Second Launch Pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR (SDSC SHAR), Sriharikota, became the stage for this extraordinary event.
What sets the GSLV-F05 flight apart is its groundbreaking significance. It marked the first operational flight of the GSLV carrying the Cryogenic Upper Stage (CUS). This indigenous marvel, developed within the nation, showcased India's technological prowess on a global scale. It was an unforgettable moment as the CUS soared skyward for the fourth time, solidifying its place in the GSLV-F05 flight.
Prepare to be enthralled as you witness the GSLV-F05 in action, defying the limits of human achievement. It is a testament to India's indomitable spirit and unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of space exploration.
