GSLV-F10 launch took place today (12th Aug) at 05:43 Hrs IST as scheduled. Performance of first and second stages was normal. However, Cryogenic Upper Stage ignition did not happen due to technical anomaly. The mission couldn't be accomplished as intended.
ISRO chairman K. Sivan said that a 'technical anomaly was observed in the cryogenic stage and the mission could not be accomplished.'
Veteran space scientist G Madhavan Nair said that, This is a very complex mission. Normally, the Cryogenic stage is the most difficult one compared to all other rocket propulsions. This is the eighth launch of cryogenic stage. This was the first unsuccessful one.
