ISRO to test crew escape system of the country’s first human spaceflight mission Gaganyaan
The Indian Space Agency has made the stage ready to test the crucial crew escape system of its rocket Gaganyaan on Saturday. The demonstration of the TV-D1 mission has been rescheduled to 8.45 am presently.
The vehicle director initiated the automatic launch sequence a few seconds back As the objective is to test the safe landing at the Bay of Bengal and due to the presence of low pressure, the mission will be undertaken accordingly.
Gaganyaan will be launched from the first launch pad of the Sathish Dhawan Space Centre. India on its way to a manned mission in 2025 will be testing the launch sequences before that schedule. ISRO said that the reasons for the rescheduling are due to poor visibility and weather conditions
