ISRO launches a sound rocket to study attitudinal variations

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launched a sonic rocket to study attitudinal variations in neutral winds and plasma dynamics from Sriharikota spaceport.

ISRO has developed a series of sonic rockets called the Rohini series, notable including RH-200, RH-300 and RH-560, number in the name indicating the diameter of the rocket in mm, according to the Bengaluru-based space agency.

“Sound rocket launch (RH-560) to study attitudinal variations in neutral winds and plasma dynamics carried out today (Friday) at SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota,” tweeted ISRO.

Sonic rockets are one- or two-stage solid-propellant rockets used to probe upper atmospheric regions and for space research.

They also serve as easily accessible platforms for testing or prototyping new components or subsystems intended for use in launch vehicles and satellites.
