ISRO : India will have its own Space Station!

After several successful missions in space, Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is planning to launch its own Space Station. In Indian history, this project will be the most important project for India.

According to ISRO chief K. Sivan, this project will be started after the first manned mission, Gaganyaan, scheduled for August 2022 and is expected to be completed by 2030. The proposed weight of the space station is 20 tonnes and would help to carry out research and experiments in microgravity. This will serve as a facility where astronauts can stay for 15-20 days.  It would be placed in an orbit 400 km above the earth. 


For this project, India will not take help from other countries. The Government of India has already passed Rs. 10,000 crore budget for the Ganganyaan mission. More details about this project will be made available after the Gaganyaan mission. It currently believes it would take five to seven years to conceptualize the space station.
