This Live TV footage showed the rocket disappearing in a plume of smoke moments after its launch in Sriharikota near the city of Chennai (Madras) in 2010.

The GSAT-5P satellite was supposed to have a life span of over 13 years. It had 36 transponders – automatic receivers and transmitters for communication and broadcast of signals.  India has successfully launched lighter satellites in recent years, but has faced problems sending up heavier payloads.
