India's largest rocket, which may carry humans to space some day, is expected to be launched today Monday June 05,2017
The 640-ton GSLV Mk III rocket - as much as 200 full-grown Asian elephants or five Jumbo jets - will be on its maiden flight from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh at 5.28 pm.
The 24-hour countdown has already started. For now, the rocket will carry a satellite.
It is expected that one day -- in over 7 years -- it will carry astronauts to space.
