Sriharikota : India successfully placed its communication satellite in orbit on Thursday using its heavy rocket geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle.  GSLV-D6 lifted off from Sriharikota spaceport at 4.52 pm as scheduled on Thursday carrying communication satellite GSAT-6.

The successful flight of GSLV rocket gives the Indian space programme a much-needed booster as getting the more-efficient cryogenic engine (which provides more thrust for every kilogram of propellant burnt) right is important for its future space programmes.
