India has successfully launched its first-ever homemade space shuttle model called the Reusable Launch Vehicle Technology Demonstrator or RLVTD. It was blasted off on a rocket from the Sriharikota spaceport early morning on Monday. It was designed to reach an altitude of 70 kilometers, and then plunge into the Bay of Bengal. The Indian Space Research Organization developed the RLVTD on a small budget of about one billion rupees, or roughly 15 million dollars, with the aim to make future satellite launches more cost-effective and greener.
