Gaganyaan Mission: Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has once again created history in the space sector. After the success of Chandrayaan-3, ISRO conducted the first trial of the first phase of the Gaganyaan mission on Saturday (21 October), which was completely successful. The first phase test of Gaganyaan mission was successfully completed at 10 am today. After taking off from Sriharikota, Gaganjan landed in the Bay of Bengal.
Although the test was scheduled to take place at 8:30 am, but due to bad weather its time was later changed to 8:45 am. But, here again a problem arose and a few seconds before the trial it was put on hold due to a technical glitch. But, later its successful trial was carried out after removing the technical glitch. Now the question arises that what is Gaganyaan Mission? And why is this so important for ISRO after Chandrayaan-Aditya?
The mission cost so much
After the success of this mission, India aims to establish its own space station in space by the year 2035. Passengers are to be sent to space under Mission Gaganyaan by the end of 2024 or early 2025. There will be several rounds of testing before that. In the Gaganyaan mission, ISRO will send the spacecraft to outer space 400 kilometers away from the Earth. After this that module will be brought back to Earth safely. Under the mission, the landing of humans in the spacecraft will be done in the Bay of Bengal.
The total cost of this mission is Rs 9023.00 crore. The prototype of this mission was created in 2006. After which the discussion continued year after year and the work kept getting worse. But, after 2014, this mission gained momentum and today India has reached the trial of the mission.
What is the objective of the mission?
ISRO has launched hundreds of satellites so far, but has never sent any spacecraft into space with humans. Now preparations are going on to send 4 astronauts to space through Gaganyaan. Besides, all four are also taking training in the country and abroad. If everything goes as per plan, Gaganyaan will be launched next year. Aboard it, the four astronauts will revolve around the Earth for seven days. Then they will return back to earth.
During this time, space related information will be obtained at an altitude of 400 kilometers, so that other vehicles can be prepared for future missions. If this mission of India is successful then India will become the fifth country to do so after America, Russia, Japan and China.
