India will launch its first manned space mission by 2022

PM Modi says India to launch its first manned space mission by 2022

"The project has been under way; now we need to prioritise and achieve the target".

"We will put an Indian in space by 2022 or earlier", he said. Before undertaking the launch, we will have two unmanned missions.

Queried about the target date set by Modi and the steps to be taken by ISRO, Sivan said: "We will have to get a formal approval for the project". It was launched by ISRO in October 2008 and operated till August 2009, while the Mangalyaan is a space probe orbiting Mars since September 24, 2014.

Prior to the actual launch by 2022, the Indian Space Research Organisation will have two unmanned missions and spacecraft will be fired using Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark-III, Sivan said.

"We've debated for long on the tangible and intangible benefits of manned space missions", said B.N. Suresh, former director of the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Thiruvananthapuram.

Modi said India's Gaganyaanspacecraft would carry an Indian into space, making India the fourth country in the world with manned spaceflight capability. "Our idea is to develop everything within India", he added.

"Technologies that will help in sending an Indian astronaut to space - like human crew module and environment control and life support system - have already been developed", he added. He was part of the crew on Soyuz T-11 launched on April 2, 1984 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic, a part of the then Soviet Union.

The Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), also called Mangalyaan, India's first interplanetary mission was launched on November 5, 2013 by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

In the run-up to the first manned mission, said to be the largest project undertaken by the Indian space agency, the ISRO will conduct the next unmanned test flight by 2020.

The astronaut would be "carrying the national flag", Modi said. She died on re-entry... The satellite, later rechristened South Asian satellite, was launched in May previous year.

The GSLV MK III is the most powerful rocket ever made in the country; it was first launched in June 2017 to deliver a massive 3,135 kg GSAT-19 satellite into orbit, to deliver internet access.
