India Tests Large Solid-Propellant Booster
As the U.S. ponders shutting down its capacity to manufacture the largest solid-fuel space-launch boosters, India has tested a 200-metric-ton solid rocket for the latest version of its Geostationary Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV Mk. III). The S200 strap-on stage fired for 130 sec. in a test Jan. 24 at the Satish Dhawan Space Center on Sriharikota Island in the Bay of Bengal. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) says the all-domestic booster generated a peak thrust of about 500 metric tons in the static test.
