GSLV D3 Launch Anomaly

Watched the launch in real-time via NDTV from Sriharikota. The launch was good, with the first stage firing perfectly (of course). The second stage burned as planned. ISRO did confirm the indigenous cryogenic engine ingnited, then telemetry data indicated the launch vehicle was tumbling and subsequently contact was lost.

After 18 years of hard work by many at ISRO, the launch is considered a limited success. They’re determined to try again in one year.
