BENGALURU: The versatile-sounding rocket of ISRO, has registered its two hundredth consecutive profitable launch from the shores of Thumba, Thiruvananthapuram.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Wednesday termed it a “historic moment”.

It was witnessed by former President Ram Nath Kovind and ISRO chairman S Somanath, amongst others.

The profitable flight of RH200 took off from the Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS).

“Indian sounding rockets are used as privileged tools for the scientific community for carrying out experiments on meteorology, astronomy and similar branches of space physics,” an ISRO assertion mentioned.

Campaigns reminiscent of Equatorial ElectroJet (EEJ), Leonid Meteor Shower (LMS), Indian Middle Atmosphere Programme (IMAP), Monsoon Experiment (MONEX), Middle Atmosphere Dynamics (MIDAS), and Sooryagrahan-2010 have been carried out utilizing the sounding rocket platform for scientific exploration of the Earth’s environment, it mentioned.

The Rohini Sounding Rocket (RSR) collection have been the forerunners for ISRO’s heavier and extra complicated launch autos, with continued utilization even immediately for atmospheric and meteorological research, the nationwide area company headquartered right here mentioned.

“The 200th consecutive successful flight stands testimony to the commitment of Indian rocket scientists towards unmatched reliability demonstrated over the years,” it mentioned.
