India planning to launch own space station by 2030

ISRO Chief K Sivan says India Planning To Launch its own Space Station By 2030. The ambitious project will be an extension of the Gaganyaan mission. It is an ambitious project that will be an extension of the Gaganyaan mission. India is targeting 2030 as the date to launch a 20-tonne space station, which will most likely be used to conduct microgravity experiments. The preliminary plan for the space station is to accommodate astronauts for up to 15-20 days in space, but specific details will emerge after the maiden manned mission, Gaganyaan, is complete. ISRO says there will be no collaboration with any other country for this project.

The only countries that have had space stations so far are the US, Russia, China, and a consortium of nations that own the International Space Station. The government has already cleared a budget of Rs 10,000 crore for the Gaganyaan mission. There would be two flights from Andhra Pradesh's Sriharikota without the crew before the maiden flight with the crew sometime in 2022.

Currently, ISRO's focus is on India's second mission to the moon, Chandrayaan-2, which will take off on July 15, and will attempt to land near the South Pole of the Moon, an uncharted territory so far. Chandrayaan-2 is an advanced version of the previous Chandrayaan-1 mission, which was launched about 10 years ago.

A space station is a spacecraft capable of supporting crewmembers, designed to remain in space for an extended period of time and for other spacecraft to dock, the most commonly known being the International Space Station. The International Space Station is a habitable artificial satellite in low Earth orbit. It is the largest human-made body in low Earth orbit and can often be seen with the naked eye from Earth.

Union Minister of State for Atomic Energy and Space Jitendra Singh said ISRO had resolved to send its human mission into space in 2022. The landing on the moon near the South Pole, an uncharted territory so far, would be on September 6 or 7, as the Indian space agency is all set to embark on its most complex mission. The launch would take place at 2.51 am on board the GSLV MK-III vehicle from the spaceport of Sriharikota. The mission cost of Chandrayaan-2 with regard to the satellite was Rs 603 crore. The cost of GSLV MK III is Rs 375 crore. Chandrayaan-2 weighing 3,290-kg according to ISRO will orbit the Moon with the payloads onboard

ISRO agency’s ambitious mission to the Sun Aditya-L1 (Liberator) in 2020 and its major aim is to study the Sun’s corona, through which it will be easier to understand more about climate change on earth. The agency wants to study its effects on climate change and hopes to launch it in the first half of next year.
