The Indian Space Research Organisation's first Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III rocket, the country's most powerful booster yet, launches on its maiden flight on Dec. 18, 2014 carrying a prototype crew capsule.<br />
PSLV has turned out to be the most trusted and reliable satellite carrier of the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro). It has not just launched 209 satellites of 28 countries since May 1999, the vehicle has also placed 48 Indian satellites in their respective orbits till now.
In 1992, the US under President George Bush had slapped sanctions on Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) and prevented Russia from sharing cryogenic engine technology with the Indian space agency so as to check India from making missiles.
