So the rocket select for this to launch the India's Gaganyaan mission is called the GSLV MK 3, which stands for Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark 3.

It is very powerful and also known as LVM3, which plays a crucial role in this field of India's space exploration. So as I said it is very powerful so is heavy also . It is very capable to take heavy load to the Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit and Low Earth orbit.

Some key features of the rocket:

  1. It is capable of lifting the heavy weight upto 4000 kg to GEO and 10000 kg to LEO.
  2. It has cutting edge technology with cyrogenic uper stage with liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen.
  3. It has high level of reliability with successful launches.

So these are the qualities and name of the rocket.
