ISRO launches reusable rocket RLV-TD. But not similar to those of SpaceX.
ISRO launches first indigenous reusable rocket from Sriharikota After launching from the Sriharikota spaceport, it would be glided back onto a virtual runway in the Bay of Bengal.
ISRO is currently working on reusable rocket technology (RRT). It’s a worthy cause, too.
This price tag is largely based on the cost of fuel and a single-use rocket. But it is not similar to that of SpaceX.
Following that logic, a reusable rocket should prove cheaper in the long run. India News: Isro is gearing up for the second demonstration test of the reusable launch vehicle (RLV) next year.
According to Iowa State University, it costs about $10,000 to send a single pound ($22,000 per kg) into low-Earth orbit through traditional means.
Very similar in its looks to the US space shuttle, the double delta-winged RLV-TD is a …
They concluded it wasn’t worth the trouble. Back then, a rocket lifted too small a fraction of its mass in normal fully expendable mode.
ISRO Reusable Rocket Stages ISRO is in the league of three space agencies that has the potential of driving the reusable launch vehicle project into the future, the other two being SpaceX and Blue Origin. ATV carrying Scram jet engines weighed 3277 kg at lift-off.
Plus other rockets commonly have a single or two large first stage engines. ISRO is developing a reusable launch vehicle as it will eventually require one to reduce the launch cost. They did studies.

First one on the orbital re-entry of the vehicle, second on the landing of the reusable launch vehicle on the airstrip and third on reusable rocket stages. ISRO’s Advanced Technology Vehicle (ATV), which is an advanced sounding rocket, was the solid rocket booster used for the test of Scram jet engines at supersonic conditions.

However, this time, the RLV will be tested on an The Indian space agency is developing a method to reuse the first and second stages of rockets . However, the Indian Space and Research Organization (ISRO) additionally plans to achieve the equivalent with its Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) that it originally tried on May 23, 2016 . Isro.
