Gaganyaan Mission: In this idea exchange Jitendra Singh, Mos for science and technology talks on the upcoming human spaceflight programme by ISRO India’s space ties with Russia and the US and upsurge of violence in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is getting ready to start some initial test flights as they prepare for the Gaganyaan mission on Oct 21 This mission aims to send Indian astronauts into space for the first time these flights are important to make sure everything work correctly before sending astronauts into space this announcement is a significant step toward achieving this exiting goal and it shows that Indian is making progress in space exploration.
The Test Vehicle Development Flight(TV-D1) is test that will happen at the Satish Dhawan space centre in Andhra Pradesh India they are going to test a special module where Indian astronauts will stay when they go into space next year. this test is like a practice to make sure the module works well and keeps the astronauts during their space journey its an important step in getting ready for India’s first human spaceflight.
Launching the module into outer space they send the module into space safely returning it earth after it has been in space they will bring it back to earth recovering it after touchdown in the Bay of Bengal when it comes back to earth they will make it land safely in the Bay of Bengal this Indian Navy id practicing how to reuse and recover the module. these plans were discussed during a special event where ISRO engineers who worked on the Chandrayaan -3 and Aditya L-1 mission are celebrated and honoured for their contribution to these important space mission It’s all part of getting ready for future space missions and ensuring the safety of astronauts.
The Gaganyaan project is all about showing that indian can send people into spae and bring them back safely they plan to launch a crew of astronauts into an orbite about 400 kilometers above the Earth after spending some time in space they will bring the astrouauts back to make them land safety in the water of the indian ocean its like a practice to prove that india can do human spaceflight.
The minister said: first an unmanned mission where no human go just check everything works second a manned mission with real astronauts going in to space in a low orbite aorund earth the successful test is like the first step towards these bigger space mission.
Before the big Gaganyaan mission with astronauts thre will be a test flight next year in this test flight,they will send a female astronaut called”Vyommitra” into space its like a practice run to make sure everything works before a real astronauts go itno space.
