New Delhi | Prime Minister Narendra Modi today congratulated scientists on the successful launch of India’s first indigenously made space shuttle- the Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV). Launch of India’s first indigenous space shuttle RLV-TD is the result of the industrious efforts of our scientists.

Congrats to them, he said in a tweet. The dynamism & dedication with which our scientists & @isro have worked over the years is exceptional and very inspiring, the Prime Minister said.

India today successfully launched the first technology demonstrator of indigenously made Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV), capable of launching satellites into orbit around earth and then re-enter the atmosphere, from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. RLV, being dubbed as India’s own space shuttle, is the unanimous solution to achieve low cost, reliable and on-demand space access, according to ISRO scientists. RLV-TD is a series of technology demonstration missions that have been considered as a first step towards realising a Two Stage To Orbit (TSTO) fully re-usable vehicle.
