India launches new projects in space and ocean exploration

INDIA, (TV BRICS) – In 2025, the first national space crew will go into space, and the first expedition will reach ocean depths of 6,000 metres, reports IANS, a partner of TV BRICS.

In 2018, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially announced that the country would send India’s first space crew into orbit by August 2022. The name of the project, Gaganyaan, translates from Sanskrit as “celestial ship.” Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the delivery of the crew to orbit was postponed to 2025.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) project involves sending a manned three-day mission into space to reach an altitude of 400 km above Earth and return.

The Indian minister said that apart from launching rockets and satellites, the space sector will also have a positive impact on agriculture, infrastructure, connections, and health.

Similar to the Gaganyaan spacecraft, the Matsya6000 deep-sea vehicle to send the crew to a depth of 6,000 metres is unofficially called Samudrayaan, or “Sea Ship.” Jitendra Singh, India’s minister for science and technology, clarified that “India’s Deep-Sea Mission will send three Indians to the Deep Sea in 2025.”
