The robot, called Vyomamitra, was the centre of attraction at the inaugural session of the “Human Spaceflight and Exploration – Present Challenges and Future Trends”. India’s maiden human spaceflight venture ‘Gaganyaan’ is scheduled in December 2021.
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief Dr K Sivan on Wednesday (22 January) said the work on India’ next mission to the Moon, Chandrayaan-3, had started.
Chandrayaan-2 is on its way to the Moon, launching from Sriharikota this afternoon. The Chandrayaan-2 Mission aims to place a rover on the Moon later this year.
