NEW DELHI: India will conduct an experimental test of its Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) Mark 3 in mid-December, ISRO Chief K Radhakrishnan said Tuesday.


"China has launch vehicles with 5.5 tonnes capacity, Europe has 11 tonnes capacity launch vehicle, US has 13 tonnes capacity launch vehicles and Russia has nearly 10 tonnes capacity vehicles," he said.

The ISRO chief said the long term target is to make a launch vehicle with 12 tonnes capacity.


He means 12 tonnes to GTO!


i suppose thats comparable to Energia and the Falcon heavy ! ..should be around 70 tons to LEO

USA calls Astronauts
Russia calls Cosmonauts
China calls Taikunauts

What would we call our "Antrix Yatris"?

Why retain the 'naut'? Wouldn't it be better if the entire word is Indianized?

Taikonauts.

Wiki wrote:Chinese
Main article: Chinese space program
See also: List of Chinese astronauts

Official English-language texts issued by the government of China use astronaut while texts in Russian use космонавт (cosmonaut).[19][20] In official Chinese-language texts, "yǔ háng yuán" (宇航员, "space navigating personnel") is used for astronauts and cosmonauts, and "háng tiān yuán" (航天员, "space navigating personnel") is used for Chinese astronauts. The phrase "tài kōng rén" (太空人, "spaceman") is often used in Hong Kong and Taiwan.[citation needed]

The term taikonaut is used by some English-language news media organizations for professional space travelers from China.[21] The word has featured in the Longman and Oxford English dictionaries, the latter of which describes it as "a hybrid of the Chinese term taikong (space) and the Greek naut (sailor)"; the term became more common in 2003 when China sent its first astronaut Yang Liwei into space aboard the Shenzhou 5 spacecraft.[22] This is the term used by Xinhua News Agency in the English version of the Chinese People's Daily since the advent of the Chinese space program.[23] The origin of the term is unclear; as early as May 1998, Chiew Lee Yih (趙裡昱) from Malaysia, used it in newsgroups.[24][25]

India to launch unmanned crew module in December
Sorry if already posted here. This has a latest picture of the crew module, undergoing vibration tests. Quite TFTA and will surely tickle the jingo's pink.

why not akashnaut? but might be only remain around earth (atmosphere)

antaranaut is fine. [but that might be meaning inner-space ?]

i guess prasannasimha is right on vyomanaut.
going by this lexicon site, aZa-naut is one.. i don't know how they pronounce.

we can easily convert naut -> nath! :)

vyomanath is super! above all loknath.

In the end the purpose of this 'naut' nomenclature is to identify with a country. I'd keep it simple such as
Hindunaut
Bharatnaut
Indunaut
etc

If the idea is to have a word derived from an Indian language, then I hope
they avoid any word ending in -naut.
I think any word which limits the meaning to atmosphere should also be
avoided.
The word should also be easy to pronounce and not too long.
If I had a better knowledge of Sanskrit, I would give it a shot, but since
I don't I will let the pundits do it.

Annadurai is also helming the Aditya mission, a
satellite which would act as a solar observatory,
and is officially scheduled for launch in 2016-17.
"We will be going to a point 1.5 million kilometres
away from Earth, from which we will observe the
sun constantly," says Annadurai, who has been with ISRO since 1982. "Technically, this is a very
challenging mission. Normally, any satellite will go
around a mother planet but this will be at a point
where the gravity of the sun and the Earth will
play a role to keep the satellite in place," he says.

The Lagrangian Point, as it is called, is named
after 18th century mathematician Joseph-Louis
Lagrange, informs former ISRO chairman Rao.
Rao retired in 1994, but is involved in projects
when he is asked ("Without any fee", he adds
with a chuckle). The original idea had been to have a satellite at an orbit of 600 km above Earth
which would carry one instrument but this scope
was later altered.

ISRO scientists
also said rocket to Mercury and another mission
to Mars are being considered, according to a
report in Mint. Next year will also see the launch
of Astrosat, a multi-wavelength astronomy
mission carrying multiple instruments to study celestial sources.

All the naut-i business should be junked :P

Here - it is already thought of:

Gagana Viharin (Sky Voyager)

Very unique, no naut-i or nutty business (why import a concept for poor aam-admi), no tongue twisters (like vyomanaut).

Simple - GaganaViharin - everybody knows what is Gagana and what is Vihar. There is immediate connection.

But then ISRO does it have ears?

Astronaut comes from astro + nautes (sailor)
This could become vyomanavik, and the captain could be vyomanayak

We should reclaim the word "navigator" or "navigate" which came from the Sanskrit "navgath" or "navgathi". It is in use in Hindi and other Indic languages in the form of nau or nav (boat). Also, "outer space" has zero meaning in Sanskrit where space is space, inner or outer (akasha).

SaiK wrote:we can easily convert naut -> nath! :)

Well, naut (nautical) came from nau (boat) also. And juggernaut is the anglicized Jagannath.

At some point, India should stop reinventing the wheel in the name of patriotism and focus on substance. Calling Indian astronauts as "Astronauts" is somehow diminishing the effort or the prestige involved in this exercise? Just because Chinese are calling their astronauts as taikonauts, it doesn't mean we should too.

can they send some mice or some mammal on that crew module as well? that is important as well to observe various O2, blood pressure, other behavior etc.

How about recovering the rest of the stages as well for reuse? especially the cryo one, partially making amends for the launch rate

After mangalyan everyone and his uncle (among nations ) wants to send up a satellite and blast away to Mars etc ..even the UAE which almost has no space industry to talk about is currently thinking about how to copy the Indian success on their own !! ..some talks about poaching people / espionage not withstanding how exactly is ISRO trying to help other nations get to Mars (tongue in cheek of course !) ..
