After successfully surviving high temperatures of re-entry with the help of its TPS, RLV-TD successfully glided down to the defined landing spot over Bay of Bengal, at a distance of about 450 km from Sriharikota.
ISRO's RLV space shuttle launch is also a big leap for technological development, said Dr K Sivan, director of the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre in an interview.
Magnetic charge ice could someday lead to smaller and more powerful computers.
India today successfully launched a Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) space shuttle and here's why it matters.
The RLV Technology Demonstration (RLV-TD), that aims to ultimately put satellites into orbit around earth and then re-enter atmosphere, will be carried up on a solid rocket motor.
ISRO has designed and built the RLV-TD as a testbed to evaluate technologies developed to reduce the cost of launching rockets
In an interview, ISRO Chairman Kiran Kumar explains the importance of the experimental Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV), which is essentially an attempt by India to bring down the cost of making infrastructure in space.
Challengers will soar into the stratosphere in a high- tech balloon, and return to the earth in a parachute.
'SkullConduct' uses the skull to provide a digital access code. In the future this new method could also secure smartphones, researchers said.
ISRO today launched India's very first space shuttle, a 'Made in India' effort.

All three planets had the "winning combination" of being similar in size to Earth, "potentially habitable" and close enough so their atmospheres can be analysed with current technology, he told AFP.
If the programme comes to India, it will open several doors.
However, the researchers suggested that since the fatalities have been narrowed down to just seven procedures, it would be rather easy to target just those procedures to drastically change the global surgery figures.
Keeping that in mind, CERN has decided to release 300 TB (terabyte) of data from its Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for free use on the Internet, according to an article tweeted by theoretical physicist Sean M Carroll.
These disturbances in the magnetic field were caused by what are known as solar flares, a sudden burst of highly energetic electromagnetic radiation from the surface of the Sun.

When the IRNSS-1G becomes operational in about a month’s time, the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) would offer services like terrestrial and marine navigation, disaster management etc.
Named the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS), it consists of a constellation of seven satellites of which six - IRNSS-1A, IRNSS-1B, IRNSS-1C, IRNSS-1D, IRNSS-1E and IRNSS-1F- have already been put into orbit.
