The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has already been nailing it with the launch of the ‘monster’ rocket, the GSLV Mark-III on Monday.

Adding a cherry to the cake, a video released by the space organisation capturing India’s largest rocket is trending on Twitter for all the interesting reasons.

Immediately gaining the moniker of the ‘Selfie’ video by the netizens of Twitter, the video captures the lift-off and onboard camera views of the 141-foot indigenous rocket.

Also known as the ‘Fat Boy’, GSLV Mark III, is India’s heaviest and most powerful rocket ever to be made and has been reportedly compared to the weight of 200 elephants or five jumbo jets.

Take a look at some of the ‘selfie’ tweets posted by the social media users:
