New Delhi: Rajya Sabha on Monday hailed Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for successfully flight testing the Re-usable Launch Vehicle- Technology Demonstrator (RLV-TD), India's first winged aerospace vehicle capable of returning to the Earth after a space flight.

ISRO had flight tested the RLV-TD from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh on May 23.

The development of this technology for sending spacecraft and satellites into orbit and returning to the earth's surface at the intended spot withstanding extreme pressure and heat conditions has added yet another significant milestone in the success story of India's space programme, Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari said.

In yet another achievement, ISRO scripted history by successfully launching 20 satellites together including India's earth observation Cartosat-2 series satellite from Sriharikota.

"The credit of both these landmark achievements goes to our scientific community working with ISRO," Ansari said, as members thumped benches to congratulate scientists, engineers and technicians associated with these projects.

Ansari expressed hope that ISRO will continue to scale greater heights and make the country proud.
