What is Green Propulsion? Green Propulsion is a green alternative for the conventional chemical propulsion systems for future spacecraft. This is called a “green” fuel because when combusted it transforms into nontoxic gasses. Example: Hydroxylammonium nitrate (NH3OHNO3) fuel/oxidizer blend which is also known as AF-M315E is one example of green propellant. Significance Efficient: The green propulsion system seeks to improve overall propellant efficiency. It delivers a higher specific thrust delivered to per given quantity of fuel. It strives to optimize the performance of the hardware, systems, and power solutions. This is easier and safer for storage and handling. Less toxic: It will reduce the handling concerns which are associated with the toxic fuel hydrazine. Lower cost: It requires a potentially shorter launch processing period and results in lowering costs. Gaganyaan This is an Indian crewed orbital spacecraft for the formative spacecraft of the Indian Human Spaceflight Programme under ISRO. The spacecraft is designed to carry three people. The mission will have two unmanned flights and one human spaceflight. It will encircle Earth in a low-earth-orbit with an altitude of 300-400 km from earth. GSLV Mk III (LVM-3 (Launch Vehicle Mark-3)) the three-stage heavy-lift launch vehicle, will be used for the launch of Gaganyaan. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
