Thanks to recent monsoon rains in Mumbai, the conditions were perfect for a sinkhole to open up riiiiight under some unfortunate person's car. True to its name, that sinkhole did what it does best. It's a little unnerving to imagine that at any time the ground could just open up and swallow whatever it wants, but what choice do we have? Should we not touch the ground? It's the ground.

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.
