Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is going to conduct the first test of Gaganyaan Mission Vehicle Test Flight (TV-D1) from Sriharikota test range today. TV-D1, the test flight for the Gaganyaan mission, was scheduled to be launched at 8 am, but out of extra caution, its launch time was advanced by 30 minutes. However, due to bad weather, ISRO has decided to stop the testing of Gaganyaan for some more time.
ISRO chief S. Somnath informed about putting the launch of Gaganyaan’s first test vehicle Abort Mission-1 (TV-D1) on hold. Explaining the reason, he said, “The lift-off attempt could not be carried out today… The vehicle is safe… We will return soon… The computer that is working has stopped the launch… We will Will fix it and schedule launch soon.”
The first test flight of Gaganyaan mission has been stopped by ISRO. Just before the launch, the Space Research Institute decided to stop its launch. It is reported that the test has been postponed due to bad weather.
This is the first test in a series of six tests to ensure that astronauts are not lost due to any reason when India’s ambitious human space mission Gaganyaan will spend three days in space 400 km above the Earth in 2025. . This test by ISRO will provide detailed information about the capability and efficiency of the Crew Escape System (CES). Apart from this, it will help in making the strategy to rescue the astronauts fail-safe in case the mission is canceled midway in case of any emergency.
