Exclusive - Kim's rocket stars: The trio behind North Korea's missile programme

  Exclusive - Kim's rocket stars: The trio behind North Korea's missile programme They include Ri Pyong Chol, a former top air force general; Kim Jong Sik, a veteran rocket scientist; and Jang Chang Ha, the head of a weapons development and procurement centre. The photographs and TV footage show that the three are clearly Kim's favourites. Their behaviour with him is sharply at variance with the obsequiousness of other senior aides, most of whom bow and hold their hands over their mouths when speaking to the young leader.Unlike most other officials, two of them have flown with Kim in his private plane Goshawk-1, named after North Korea's national bird, state TV has shown.

New Delhi: Scientists at the Indian Space Research Organisation or ISRO have developed an indigenously-built rocket - the largest ever made in India - that could soon be used to take "Indians into space from Indian soil" for the first time ever.

American Rocket Society Comes of Age | This Week In Space

New Delhi: Scientists at the Indian Space Research Organisation or ISRO have developed an indigenously-built rocket - the largest ever made in India - that could soon be used to take "Indians into space from Indian soil" for the first time ever. The rocket, said to be as heavy as 200 full-grown Asian elephants, could catapult India into the big league of sending manned-missions to space. The rocket will be tested in the first week of June.

Standing tall on the rocket port at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh is the country's latest rocket called the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III or GSLV MK-III. It is the heaviest rocket ever made by India and is capable of carrying the heaviest satellites made till date.

North Korea leader Kim guides test of new anti-aircraft weapon

  North Korea leader Kim guides test of new anti-aircraft weapon North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has supervised the test of a new anti-aircraft weapon system and ordered its mass production and deployment throughout the country, the state news agency reported on Sunday, after weeks of defiant ballistic missile tests. The North's KCNA news agency did not report the exact nature of the weapon or the time of the test but said it was organized by the Academy of National Defence Science, a blacklisted agency that is believed to be developing missiles and nuclear weapons.

The rocket had to be launched when the distance between Earth and Mars was shortest, in mid-2013: only 18 months to plan, build, and test everything onboard. With every space mission , ISRO ’s team of scientists are building their capabilities .

The Indian Space Research Organisation has launched the first test flight of its newest rocket Funding for the ASLV was cut in favour of the more capable Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle which by With the CARE mission , ISRO ’s manned vehicle became the second such spacecraft to undergo a

With this rocket, ISRO will have the potential to enter the world's multi-billion dollar launch market. "We are pushing ourselves to the limits to ensure that this new, fully self-reliant Indian rocket succeeds in its maiden launch," said ISRO chairman AS Kiran Kumar.

The GSLV MK-III, which was earlier named the Launch Vehicle Mark-3 or LVM-3, will make its maiden launch in June. It will be tested at least half a dozen times. If successful, it could become India's vehicle of choice to launch "Indians into space, from Indian soil using Indian rockets". The rocket is capable of placing up to 8 tons in a low Earth orbit, which is enough to carry India's crew module.

Next Week, ISRO To Test Rocket Capable Of Manned Missions

  Next Week, ISRO To Test Rocket Capable Of Manned Missions Scientists at the Indian Space Research Organisation or ISRO have developed an indigenously-built rocket - the largest ever made in India - that could soon be used to take "Indians into space from Indian soil" for the first time ever. Standing tall on the rocket port at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh is the country's latest rocket called the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III or GSLV MK-III. It is the heaviest rocket ever made by India and is capable of carrying the heaviest satellites made till date.

They could design a big rocket , but the Indian Space Research Organisation ( Isro ) would have Test feature in May 5 mission is a tool to cut fuel load & space launch costs This week 's space This can not only be used during natural calamities and disasters but also during several man -made

The Indian Space Research Organization has launched its heaviest ever rocket to date that can one day be used for a manned space mission .

ISRO has already prepared plans of hoisting a 2-3 member human crew into space as soon as the government gives it a sanction of about 4 billion dollars. Should the plan for a manned-mission materialise, India would become only the fourth country after Russia, United States and China to have a human space flight program. ISRO has said that the first Indian to go into space (from an Indian launch) could be a woman astronaut.

"In principle, it will be the GSLV MK-III or its variant that will be human rated in future," Mr Kumar said.

The rocket port in Sriharikota is buzzing with activity as engineers from ISRO get set to launch the new indigenously-made rocket. It is the heaviest fully-functional rocket to reach the launch pad - weighing 640 tons or almost 5 times the weight of a fully loaded Jumbo Jet airplane.

The new rocket is capable of carrying satellites of four ton class into the geosynchronous orbit and opens a whole new window through which ISRO can now explore the universe. It is estimated that the new rocket costs around Rs 300 crore.

N Korea tests weapon that will 'spoil enemy's dream'

  N Korea tests weapon that will 'spoil enemy's dream' North Korea has tested a new anti-aircraft weapon system that Kim Jong Un says will "completely spoil the enemy's dream to command the air".Pyongyang said glitches detected in an earlier test have been "perfectly overcome", paving the way for the weapon to be mass produced and deployed nationwide.

India Space Research Organisation ( ISRO ) today successfully launched its heaviest rocket GSLV-Mark III from Top 15 deals on Flipkart's Big App Top launches of the week : May 22, 2015. Isro test fires India's heaviest rocket GSLV Mark III. NASA officially announces manned mission to Mars.

Story of the Week - Indian Space Research Organization High Altitude Flight Acceptance test of CE20 Engine conducted successfully. ISRO will launch a record 104 satellites through its workhorse rocket PSLV-C37 Kumar said that the manned mission project is "not a top priority" for the ISRO

India already has two operational rockets -- the workhorse Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle or PSLV that can hoist satellites of 1.5 tons into space and was the preferred vehicle for India's maiden mission to Moon and Mars.

The second -- the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark-II that can hoist 2-ton class of satellites.

Between them, ISRO has done over 50 launches and recently even earned a world record by successfully placing 104 satellites in orbit.

The new GSLV Mk-III is an all new vehicle designed and developed in India and in 2014 a sub-orbital successful test of this vehicle was conducted to understand how it performs in the atmosphere.

The rocket never went into space but helped test India's future astronaut capsule. It had a dummy cryogenic engine and was a single stage vehicle.

Even though the GSLV Mk-III is just 43 metres in height, making it the shortest of the three big Indian rockets, it carries a huge punch as it weighs almost 1.5 times heavier than India's next biggest rocket the GSLV MK-II and almost twice as heavy as India's PSLV.

The new cryogenic engine is being tested on a fully functional rocket for the first time and it is the development of this technology that uses liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen as propellant is what took more than 15 years for scientists to master.

Man's Dream Of Lord Shiva Leads To Nightmare On Hyderabad Highway .
Two events in the Telugu-speaking states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana last evening perhaps best encapsulate the India story. The spot was at Jangaon, about 80 km from Hyderabad. Traffic jams at least a kilometer long could be seen on both sides of the National Highway 163, which connects Warangal to Hyderabad. At the middle of it was a 15 feet by 8 feet hole - methodically dug up with a huge JCB excavator machines.
