In a momentous achievement for the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the Gaganyaan Mission took a significant step forward as the In-flight Crew Abort System was successfully tested, resulting in the Crew Module splashing down in the sea near the coast of Sriharikota.
The recovery process for the Crew Module is currently in progress, and it will soon be transported back to ISRO’s headquarters. The Indian Navy played a pivotal role in this success by efficiently recovering the ISRO Gaganyaan Crew Capsule from the Bay of Bengal following the successful In-flight Crew Abort test under the Gaganyaan Mission.
This marks a substantial milestone in India’s journey to send and bring back Indian astronauts from space. This achievement is nothing short of historic for ISRO, signifying its commitment to precision and quality since its inception.
The test demonstrated ISRO’s incredible capabilities as it was conducted just 5 seconds before the scheduled launch, and the rocket was successfully launched again after only one hour, showcasing the organization’s unmatched expertise.
Union Minister of Science, Dr. Jitendra Singh, shared an exciting update by revealing that ISRO’s humanoid lady robot, VyomMitra, will be sent into space before the final manned mission in 2025.
This announcement sets the stage for a promising future in space exploration for India and further cements ISRO’s role on the global stage.
