India's time to shine !

India is sending humans to Space from their own soil and rocket for the first time ! The mission's name is Gaganyaan that means "sky craft". ISRO will be putting 3 humans to the LEO(Lower Earth Orbit)for a whole week through their own Rocket called the GSLV Mark 3(Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark 3), in December 2021. DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) will provide stuff like food and healthcare and HAL(Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) will produce the crew module. ISRO also made a human-like robot called 'Vyommitra' that will accompany the astronauts in the mission. In December 2020 they will also launch a uncrewed mission to Space. ISRO has received $1.7 billion for this mission! With that type of money you can buy 500,000,000 packets of rice krispies !They have already conducted a re-entry test and a abort test and they will conduct 2 test flights in December 2020 and in July 2021, and they final mission will be in December 2021 from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. All the best to ISRO !
