#ISRO commissions two major facilities at VSSC

ISRO on Monday commissioned two major facilities- a Hypersonic Wind Tunnel and Shock Tunnel- at the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre at Thiruvananthapuram as part of its continuous and concerted efforts to minimise cost of access to space. ISRO Chairman Kiran Kumar said commissioning of such facilities would provide adequate data for design and development of current and future space transportation systems in the country.
