Indian Space Research Organization

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is the space agency of the Government of India headquartered in the city of Bangalore. Its vision is to "harness space technology for national development while pursuing space science research and planetary exploration."


CARE (Demo Flight)

The CARE is a mock-up of the planned Indian crewed space capsule. Its mission is to study re-entry and thermal behaviour. CARE does not have the pressure-vessel of the final capsule, but is only a structural mock-up. It will re-enter and land in the bay of Bengal to be retrieved. For the suborbital flight, it is mounted upside-down inside the payload fairing. This launch uses a non-functional 2nd stage. CARE separates from the launch vehicle after 1st stage shutdown.
