The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has launched a sounding rocket to study attitudinal variations in the neutral winds and plasma dynamics from Sriharikota spaceport.
Sounding rockets are one or two stage solid propellant rockets used for probing the upper atmospheric regions and for space research.
“Launch of sounding rocket (RH-560) to study attitudinal variations in the neutral winds and plasma dynamics carried out today at SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota. #RohiniSoundingRockets #ISRO,” tweeted ISRO.
ISRO started launching indigenously made sounding rockets from 1965. It has developed a series of sounding rockets called Rohini series and Rocket RH-560 is important among them.
