Landmass doesn't matter, our country is not small either.They have capacity and a large landmass than us.
We have the advantage to be nearer to the equator which actually facilitates lower cost because of less consumption of fuel because force of gravity decreases from poles to the equator.
We are already near there, if we wouldn't have conduct extra missions like RLV, crew module, scramjet, Pad Abort, we would already have touched 10 launches this year.We should first increase to 12.
Yes, because of facilities. FLP mostly facilitates for PSLV-G meanwhile SLP for PSLV-CA, XL, GSLV MkII and LVM 3.I heard that Sriharikota have got too busy and taking time to launch satellites cos most of the launch activity takes place at second launch pad.
Reason of record launches this year was ISRO also used PSLV-Gs this year and utilized FLP more.
They are not "planning". They are already building a 5 kilometres long roadstrip for LEX. (Landing Experiment).They are planning to build an runway for space shuttles.
Who asked you to run your brain when a talented guy like me is here just for you buddy?Not sure about an new launch pad.
It's under construction buddy. I will try to get some pictures for you.
