Sriharikota: All eyes are on the space launch of India's first privately made rocket by Telangana-based startup Skyroot Aerospace.

The Vikram-S mission is carrying three payloads developed by SpaceKidz India, Bazoomq Armenia, and N-Space Tech India.

It has been developed over a span of 2 years and this would be its demonstration mission, which includes the pre-lift-off, lift-off, ascent, and deployment phase of the satellites.

Powered by solid-fuelled propulsion, advanced avionics, and a carbon-fiber core structure, it would reach an altitude of 120 kilometers above the surface of Earth.

It is aimed at testing and validating the system, designs, and technology of orbital-class launch vehicles, including several sub-systems and technologies.

The Vikram-S mission will launch on November 18 at 11:30 am from the sounding rocket complex, Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota.

The mission will test 80 percent of technologies to be used in the full Vikram variants.
