India has launched a rocket into space, weighing 200 adult elephants
India joined the chosen number of countries which can apply for membership in the missile club "heavy-lift" after she successfully launched a communications satellite weighing more than 3 tons into space. The Prime Minister of India Narendra modi posted on Twitter to celebrate the launch, calling it a proud moment for the country.

To date, only the US, Russia, China, Japan and the European space Agency successfully launched the so-called heavy satellites weighing more than 3 tons. The launch, which took place at 17:00 local time from the Space center Satish-Dhawan, was the first to use the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark-III (GSLV Mk-III) known as "fat man" because of his size.

It is assumed that the rocket GSLV Mk-III weighs like 5 fully loaded Boeing Jumbo or 200 fully adult elephants. It is the largest of the most powerful rockets ever produced by India. "Initially, we launched our satellites from abroad," said D. P. Karnik, the representative of the Indian space research organization. "The Indian space program is now fully indigenous".

GSLV Mk III can carry up to 4 thousand kg, which is 2 times the previous volume available for space programme of India. In a sense, starting Monday marks the path of independence, which took 25 years told I recommend Rajagopalan, head of the initiative on nuclear and space policy Research Fund observers.

The success of the launch is widely seen as an important step towards long-term goals of the country - to become a leading player in the multibillion-dollar global market for launching satellites.
