Gaganyaan: India's crewed spacecraft under development
Gaganyaan is an Indian crewed orbital spacecraft intended to be the formative spacecraft of the Indian Human Spaceflight Programme. The spacecraft is being designed to carry three people, and a planned upgraded version will be equipped with rendezvous and docking capability. In its maiden crewed mission, Indian Space Research Organisation's largely autonomous 3.7-tonne (8,200 lb) capsule will orbit the Earth at 400 km (250 mi) altitude for up to seven days with a two or three-person crew on board. The crewed vehicle is planned to be launched on ISRO's GSLV Mk III in December 2021. This HAL-manufactured crew module had its first un-crewed experimental flight on 18 December 2014. As of May 2019, design of the crew module has been completed. On January 22, 2020 ISRO announced Vyommitra, a Female Robot who will accompany other astronauts in the mission. She can detect and give out warnings if environmental changes within the cabin get uncomfortable to astronauts and change the air condition, she can also take up postures suited for launch and tasks and take commands.
