ISRO Gaganyaan Mission Update
The upcoming Gaganyaan mission could begin testing soon.
ISRO Gaganyaan mission is one of the most ambitious projects undertaken by the Indian premier space agency. The mission involves sending Indian astronauts to space for a round trip.
The Gaganyaan mission will be India's first manned space mission that's scheduled to lift off next year, 2023.
Ahead of the launch, ISRO has set a date for the first abort test, which will take place at the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota.
The abort test is a crucial element when it comes to manned space flights.
The first abort test is designed to separate the crew module from the special test vehicle at an altitude of about 11km from sea level.
The Gaganyaan abort test is a crucial part of the entire project as it would ensure that the astronauts land safely back on Earth.
The Gaganyaan pressurized crew module with human service capability called the environmental life support system is under development.
