    ISRO successfully lands RLV: What does it mean for India’s space program?

    India may decide to tread the Chinese path toward realizing the dream of a manned space station by the end of this decade.
    The RLV is aimed at lowering the costs by around 80 percent from $20,000 to $4,000 per kilogram (for international customers) when compared to traditional PSLV rockets.
    When all of the test results are analyzed and the necessary corrections are incorporated into the vehicle, RLV may evolve as a robust and rugged platform for low-cost launches of satellites to LEO.
    Now, the only challenge is to keep the funds continuously flowing into the RLV, Gaganyaan, SCE-200, and the proposed space station programmes.
