India will conduct a partial test flight of a bigger and better space vehicle next month, a top official of the state-owned space agency has reportedly said.
The landmark test flight of GSLV Mark-III will lead to “a future workhorse vehicle that will stay with us for many years,” Indian Space Research Organization chief K. Radhakrishnan was quoted by the media as saying in the southern city of Bengaluru Friday.
GSLV Mark-III will enable India to send larger national communication satellites into space.
