ISRO has come a long way since its formation on August 15, 1969. Here are a few misses from the Indian Space Research Organisation

August 10th, 1979

India's first experimental flight of SLV-3 carrying Rohini Technology Payload could not place the satellite into its intended orbit becoming India's first major satellite failure.

March 24th, 1987

SROSS-1 failed to reach Earth's orbit. The 150 kg satellite carried scientific instruments and was launched onboard the first ASLV (Augmented Satellite Launch Vehicle) developmental flight.

July 10th, 2006 - GSLV-F02

India's first attempt at a heavy communication satellite failed when Launch Vehicle could not complete the mission. It also has the INSAT-4C on board.

August 31st, 2017

The PSLV-C39 in its 41st flight failed when it was supposed to launch IRNSS-1H. It had a normal lift-off except the heat shield separation. This resulted in the satellites being separated within the heat shield that resulted in a failed mission.

September 7th, 2019

India's attempt to land a robotic spacecraft close to the Moon's South Pole failed when ISRO lost contact with the satellite. The trajectory diverted from its path and the radio fell silent.
