The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) called it a “historic moment”. Former President Ram Nath Kovind and Indian Space Research Organization Chairman Somanath and others witnessed this process.

The successful flight of the RH200 took off from the Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launch Station (TERLS).

“Indian sounding rockets are used as privileged tools of the scientific community to conduct experiments in meteorology, astronomy and similar branches of space physics,” said a statement from ISRO.

Activities such as Equatorial Electrojet (EEJ), Leonid Meteor Shower (LMS), Indian Middle Atmosphere Program (IMAP), Monsoon Experiment (MONEX), Middle Atmospheric Dynamics (MIDAS) and Sooryagrahan-2010 have been carried out using sounding rocket platforms. Say, the scientific of the Earth’s atmosphere.

The Rohini Sounding Rocket (RSR) series has been the forerunner of ISRO’s heavier and complex launch vehicles and continues to be used for atmospheric and meteorological research even today, the national space agency, based here, said.

“The 200th consecutive successful flight is a testament to the commitment of Indian rocket scientists for unrivaled reliability over the years,” it said.

Meanwhile, ISRO will launch the PSLV-C54/EOS-06 mission, which includes Oceansat-3 and eight nanosatellites, including one from Bhutan, from the Sriharikota spaceport on November 26. The launch is scheduled for 11:56 a.m. Saturday, the National Space Agency said Sunday.

Last week, ISRO announced that India’s LVM3 rocket has increased its payload capacity by 450kg through successful engine tests. According to the Indian Space Research Organization, on November 9, the CE20 cryogenic engine independently developed for the Launch Vehicle Mark 3 (LVM3) successfully conducted its first thermal test with a thrust of 21.8 tons. space agency.
