Andhra Pradesh: Following the success of Chandrayaan-3 and the launch of Aditya L-1, India’s space agency, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)  is all set for the Flight Test Vehicle Abort Mission, a key part of its ambitious human space mission Gaganyaan, from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota today at 8:30 a.m..

This mission’s ultimate goal is to send astronauts into space and today’s test  will play a crucial role for ensuring the safety of future human space endeavours.

In this important test, ISRO is preparing to launch its Test Vehicle – Demonstration (TV-D1), which is a single-stage liquid propulsion rocket. This rocket is specially equipped with a Crew Module and Crew Escape System. The launch is scheduled to take place from the first launch pad at the spaceport.

The purpose of this test launch is to pave the way for the Gaganyaan mission, a space program with the aim of sending humans into space. The Gaganyaan mission plans to take astronauts into a Low Earth Orbit approximately 400 kilometers above the Earth’s surface. These astronauts will stay in orbit for a three-day mission before safely returning to Earth. The target date for this exciting mission is set for 2025.

The launch of TV-D1 marks a significant milestone in India’s space exploration journey. It demonstrates ISRO’s dedication to ensuring the safety of astronauts who will soon venture into the cosmos. With this test, ISRO takes its first step towards fulfilling the dream of sending Indian astronauts on an incredible journey beyond our planet.
