India's GSLV Mk III rocket lifts off on its maiden voyage December 18, 2014 at 11:00 PM EST (9:30AM Indian Standard Time).
The flight was a complete success, testing the new rocket's flight profile, avionics systems and booster technology.
Two S200 solid fuel motors propelled the vehicle off the launch pad, followed by the liquid fuelled L110 core stage. The rocket will eventually boast a cryogenic third stage which will place payloads in their desired orbits.
Einstein realised that the speed of light was one of the defining measures of the Universe. Remember E=mc2, the beautiful little formula that wrapped up the theory of relativity? Well 'c' is the speed of light. And you can measure it. All you need is a microwave, a ruler and a bar of chocolate (and maybe a calculator).
