Re: GSLV-Mk III launch program/post-launch analysis

Talking past each other. When there was a huge market for satellite launches only US/Europe/Rus had the capability to launch them. They realized that they needed to pack more to GTO to launch multiple satellites and developed the Soyuzes, Deltas and the Arianes. It was a limited launch capacity mark...

The Boeing 747 - A 380 example is relevant in that Airbus felt that 747 was long in tooth and decided to put in a competitor. Boeing decided to stay out. A 380 is not doing well. I am not sure that we are "competing". We are behind and are going to stay behind in a market that has many pl...

The GSLV Mk 2 in comparison (figures again from Wiki) can launch 2.5 tons to GTO and costs Rs 220 crores ($ 36 million) per launch. That works out to $14,400/kg. I doubt whether the GLSV Mk 3 cost/kg will be significantly different. Yes. FINALLY SOMEONE who actually posts numbers instead of "I...
