ISRO launched  GLSV MK3 in 2014 which is a crew capsule that can take human beings to space.

8. Launching 104 Satellites Together

ISRO launched 104 satellites using a single rocket from spaceport Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. Notably, it achieved this record with the help of six other nations using the PS: V-C37 in 2017. Moreover, it launched 31 satellites in a single stroke. These satellites were from various countries like UK,  U.S., and Germany.

9. GSLV-F09

ISRO launched GSLV-F09 in the year 2017. Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark-II made use of Cryogenic Upper Stage. Most noteworthy, it helped to provide one of the biggest communication networks in South Asia.

10. Navigation with Indian Constellation

India has been using the NAVIC or Navigation with Indian Constellation for operations. With this, it makes India one of the top 5 countries to own a navigation system. Furthermore, Reusable Launch Vehicle’s (RLV) are space shuttles from ISRO, which have been built most economically and can be reused as space shuttles.
