PSLV is designed mainly to deliver the earth observation or remote sensing satellites, whereas, GSLV has been designed for launching communication satellites. GSLV delivers satellites into a higher elliptical orbit, Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) and Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO).

Which is more powerful PSLV or GSLV?
PSLV can launch only over a ton of payload into the orbit while GSLV is more powerful with the capacity to launch around 2.5 tons. GSLV uses cryogenic for its final stage while the PSLV does not use such fuels. PSLV has six solid booster engines while GSLV works with four liquid engines.
What is the purpose of GSLV?
Definition: Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) is a space launch vehicle designed, developed, and operated by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to launch satellites and other space objects into Geosynchronous Transfer Orbits.
What is difference between rocket and satellite?
A rocket is a powered vessel or missile which is designed to deliver a payload such as people, satellites or ballistics. ... Satellites orbit a planetary body, such as the Earth or moon, or any other object in space. They are delivered on their course or orbit by thrust from a rocket, from which they are then detached.
WHO launched GSLV?
Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) is an expendable launch system operated by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). GSLV was used in thirteen launches from 2001 to 2018, with more launches planned.
Which fuel is used in GSLV?
The GSLV Mk III's cryogenic engine will have liquid hydrogen (fuel) at -250 degrees C and liquid oxygen at -150 degrees C.
Which fuel is used in PSLV?
Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle
|Burn time||44 seconds|
|Boosters (PSLV-XL/QL/DL) – S12|
|No. boosters||6 (XL) 4 (QL) 2 (DL)|
What is a full form of GSLV?
Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark II (GSLV Mk II) is the largest launch vehicle developed by India, which is currently in operation.
Is Chandrayaan 2 successful?
Chandrayaan-2 was the most complex mission ever attempted by India's space agency, Isro. Its chairman K Sivan - who had earlier described the final descent as "15 minutes of terror" - has since said the mission was "98% successful", based on the findings of an official committee.
What is the full form of GSLV Mark 3?
The Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III (GSLV Mk III), also referred to as the Launch Vehicle Mark 3 (LVM3), is a three-stage medium-lift launch vehicle developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
What are the 3 types of satellites?

Does Pakistan have satellite?
With the purchase made from China of the Pakistan Remote Sensing System (PRSS-1) and the indigenously built Technology Evaluation Satellite (PAKTES-1A), in 2018 Pakistan saw both these satellites launched into orbit via China's own Long March rockets.
How many dead satellites are in space?
While there are about 2,000 active satellites orbiting Earth at the moment, there are also 3,000 dead ones littering space. What's more, there are around 34,000 pieces of space junk bigger than 10 centimetres in size and millions of smaller pieces that could nonetheless prove disastrous if they hit something else.
