ISRO's Pushpak: Advancing Space Exploration



  Mar 22, 2024

ISRO's Pushpak


What is the Pushpak RLV?

● The Pushpak is a special kind of rocket India is developing.
● ​Unlike regular rockets that are used only once, the Pushpak is designed to be reusable, like an airplane.
● This means it can launch into space, deliver its payload (like a satellite), and then land safely back on Earth to be used again!
 

Why is ISRO building the Pushpak RLV?

● Rockets are very expensive to build and launch. Making them reusable can save a lot of money.
● This makes it easier and cheaper to send things into space.
● ​India wants to be a leader in space technology, and reusable rockets are a big step forward.
 

How does the Pushpak RLV work?

● It looks a bit like a small space shuttle with wings.
​● It takes off vertically like a rocket but can land horizontally like a plane.Special tests are done to practice landing the Pushpak safely and accurately.
 

What's next for the Pushpak RLV?

ISRO will continue testing to make it even better and more reliable.
One day, the Pushpak could be used for all sorts of missions, like:
●Launching satellites
●Taking supplies to a space station
●Cleaning up space junk
