World's First Cryogenic Engine
Its been hard time for the space agencies to do space missions with Ordinary Jet propulsion engines, to go ahead one step further countries like U.S, Russia, France, India, China and Japan developed CRYOGENIC ENGINES .
Advantages of Cryogenic Engines :
- It uses Liquefied Natural Gas ( LNG ) as fuel
- Emits ten times less harmful gases than ordinary engines
- Economical owing to the use of LNG
- High Amount of Thrust Produced
Hence because of its advantages over traditional rocket engines many space agencies like ISRO, NASA uses Cryogenic Engines for their rocket launchers to carry their pay loads.
In India, ISRO developed CE-20 cryogenic engine with 200kN of thrust which is being used for satellite launch missions mostly used in GSLV rockets .
