Re: Indian Space Programme Discussion

Can someone tell me why the upper stage of the GSLV is cryogenic (CUS)? Other countries have used cryogenic engines on earlier stages in a rocket to lift heavy loads. I would love to know the rationale behind this configuration. Thank you and good luck to ISRO. The cryogenic engine of India i.e C 7...
