India has successfully launched its largest rocket and an unmanned capsule which could send astronauts into space.

The 630-tonne Geo-syn-chro-nous Satellite Launch Vehicle (MK III) blasted off from Sri-hari-kota in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh on this morning.

The new rocket will be able to carry heavier satellites into space.

India has successfully launched lighter satellites in recent years, but has faced problems sending up heavier payloads.
