The ISRO released pictures of the Gaganyaan spacecraft, which will take humans to space in 2025. The Gaganyaan project plans to take a crew of 2-3 members to a circular orbit of 400 km around the Earth for a one to three days mission and bring them back safely to the Earth.
The space agency also successfully launched its unmanned test flight for its first human spaceflight mission – ‘Gaganyaan’ – in the second attempt on October 21. The test was conducted to check whether the crew could safely escape the rocket in case it malfunctioned. Since the first test was successful, ISRO will send a humanoid – a robot that resembles a human – in an unmanned Gaganyaan spacecraft in 2024.
