PSLV vs GSLV. Notwithstanding the first point: these numbers do not stand for what it costs to purchase a kilogram onboard these launchers. Falcon 9S5 would use two Falcon 5 strap-on boosters Falcon 9S9 would use two Falcon 9 strap-on boosters. The PSLV is the older of the two and the GSLV even inherits some of the technologies of the former in its design. 28 mai 2019 idariane La Chine spatiale, Lancements 1. Second: It is often cited that it costs ISRO $15 million to launch the PSLV and that it costs SpaceX around $62 million to launch a Falcon 9. It contains two lists of conventional orbital launch systems (individual rocket configurations), separated by operational status. The standard payment plan for launching the Falcon 9 costs a whopping $62million (£44.5million), and the Falcon Heavy carries a price tag of $90million (£64.7million). L’Inde lance avec succès RISAT-2B. En plus d’un tir indien, on compte l’échec de la Long March 4C en Chine avec ses conséquences, puis le déploiement des premiers satellites Starlink.

Even more powerful versions, with parallel F booster strap-ons, were projected for the future. Falcon 9 would be able to boost more than 9 tonnes to LEO or more than 3 to to geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO) for $27 million. The PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) and GSLV (Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle) are two rocket launch systems developed by the Indian Space Research Organization, or ISRO, to launch satellites into orbit.

L’actualité spatiale du 20 au 26 mai : PSLV, échec pour Long March, Falcon 9 et Starlink. This is the comparison of orbital launch systems page. Une semaine bien chargée en lancements ! And in ISRO’s case, no one knows these numbers anyway, so claiming that PSLV is a “low-cost launcher” would be premature.
