The first unmanned space mission could be delayed due to the corona

New Delhi: The unmanned space mission of Gaganyan, which is slated for launch in December this year, may be delayed due to the Corona epidemic. According to information received, in December 2021, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) plans to launch a manned mission twice before launching a manned spacecraft for the first time under Gaganyan. The Space Commission recently announced a potential delay in the first unmanned mission to the space agency.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a human space mission two years ago in his Independence Day address. The goal of the Gagayan mission is to send three to five spacecraft into space by 2022 on the 75th anniversary of India's independence. Based on this, ISRO plans to launch the first unmanned mission in December and the second in June 2021.

According to ISRO, many of the missions have been delayed due to the Corona epidemic. Among the major missions affected are Chandrayaan-3 and Gagayan. The third mission to be sent to the lunar surface, Chandrayaan-3, is scheduled to be launched later this year.
