Chennai: The failure of today`s GSLV-F06
carrying GSAT-5P is the third unsuccessful mission of India`s
Geo-Stationary Launch Vehicle in its seven flights.

The second operational flight GSLV-F02 powered by Russian
cryogenic engine failed in July 2006 while the developmental
flight GSLV-D3 using maiden indigenous cryogenic stage
deviated after takeoff in April.

All the GSLV rockets, including today`s failed flight,
used the Russian cryogenic engines barring the GSLV-D3.

Chronology of ISRO`s failed missions:

  • December 25, 2010: GSLV-F06 launch unsuccessful due to
    snag in stage-1.
  • April 15, 2010: GSLV-D3 developmental flight carrying
