General Studies I
ISRO successfully conducted a rocket test using cryogenic engines in the year 2007. Where is the test-stand used for the purpose located?
The test involved the firing of the cryogenic main engine with 7.1-tonne thrust for 1,000 seconds, simultaneously with two 200-kg thrust cryogenic steering engines, all mounted on a single block as used in the actual GSLV flight stage developing 7.5-tonne total thrust. The steering engines are used to control the flight path of GSLV during the third-stage thrusting.
