Sriharikota: The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) successfully test launched the first 'Made in India' SUV sized space shuttle.

The space shuttle has been named as -- Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) and it was launched on Monday morning from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

The test launch is considered a significant step in India's space endeavour. It's especially important because in 2011, the U.S.'s NASA abandoned its reusable space shuttle project.

"Mission accomplished successfully," ISRO said after the launch.

The government has invested Rs 95 crores in the RLV-TD project.

PM Modi's congratulated the scientists:
