Unmanned Gaganyaan mission postponed due to Corona, will not fly this year

India’s ambitious Gaganyaan project, ready to fly unmanned, has been canceled. It will now fly in 2021 as reported by the Times of India, as ISRO has re-released its plans due to Kovid-19. The mission was originally scheduled for later this year. A senior ISRO scientist said: “As per the plans being given to us, Gaganyaan unmanned flight is not in this year’s schedule.

The scientist said that by extending unmanned flight to possibly next year, the hypothesis of sending humans into space by 2022 will be affected. ISRO Chairman K.K. Sivan told TOI, ‘With the current circumstances, unmanned flight may not be possible this year. We are planning about five to six missions, including the GiSAT-1 whose launch was postponed earlier this year. Details of these missions will be made public later.

Sivan said, “Our plan is to carry the humanoids in unmanned flights. We have to decide what happens in the coming months – will we launch two unmanned missions next year, which will depend on the emerging conditions? If the Kovid influence continues even further, we may have to push some of our plans again ”.
