The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is setting ambitious goals for the future, with Chairman S. Somanath announcing a targeted launch of the nation’s first human spaceflight mission, Gaganyaan, by the end of 2025. This ambitious project, aiming to send Indian astronauts into space, marks a significant milestone in the country’s space exploration journey.
But ISRO’s aspirations don’t stop there. Chairman Somanath also revealed plans for a space station by 2035, further solidifying India’s commitment to becoming a major player in the global space arena. This ambitious timeline reflects the rapid progress ISRO has made in recent years, successfully launching numerous satellites and missions like Chandrayaan-1 and Mars Orbiter Mission (Mangalyaan).
ISRO’s ambitious goals for Gaganyaan and a space station showcase India’s growing space prowess. While challenges lie ahead, these aspirations have the potential to inspire a generation and solidify India’s position as a major player in the global space exploration landscape.
