BALASORE: Along with the scientists of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) is also celebrating the successful launch of Geo-Synchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) Mark III from Sriharikota. 

The mission was conducted on Thursday to validate Moon Mission Crew Capsule Recovery system which is equipped with an advanced parachute system designed and developed by Aerial Delivery Research and Development Establishment (ADRDE), an Agra based laboratory of DRDO.
