India has set ambitious space exploration goals, with plans to send an astronaut to the Moon by 2040 and establish a space station by 2035. These exciting endeavors were recently unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, reported BBC.
In August, India achieved a significant milestone by becoming the first nation to successfully land a spacecraft on the Moon’s south pole. Subsequently, in September, they launched a rocket dedicated to studying the Sun.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is actively working on the Gaganyaan project, designed to send a human crew into orbit at an altitude of 400 kilometers and ensure their safe return to Indian waters. This weekend, ISRO is conducting a crucial test as part of this mission. Furthermore, they are planning another test flight that will carry a robot into outer space, all in preparation for the final manned mission, scheduled to take place before the end of 2024.
