The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) introduced the humanoid on Wednesday, which is to be included in the first unmanned mission as part of the Gaganyaan mission. Gaganyaan is India's first space mission.
The robot named Vyommitra is a prototype of a humanoid and is used as an experiment before the Gaganyaan appears with the astronauts. & # 39; # 39 & Vyommitra; simulates most functions of the human body and reports to ISRO.
ISRO scientist Sam Dayal said: "We are trying to simulate a human and report to us. We are doing this as an experiment."
ISRO had previously announced that four astronauts had been identified for the Gaganyaan mission. Sources reported to Zee Media that all four astronauts selected for the mission were men, but their identity could not be disclosed.
The training of astronauts starts in Russia in January. The shortlisted astronauts receive eleven months of training. After training in Russia, the astronauts receive module-specific training in India. In this training, the astronauts are trained in the crew and service modules designed by ISRO, learn to operate them, work on them and carry out simulations. On January 1, 2020, the head of ISRO said that the Gaganyaan project is currently the top priority for the scientists at Bengaluru-based ISRO.
According to ISRO, India's heaviest launcher "Bahubali" will launch GSLV Mark-III astronauts into space. In particular, the cabinet has already approved 10,000 rupees for the Gaganyaan project. This followed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement on Independence Day last year that the launch of Gaganyaan in 2022 will coincide with the 75th year of India's independence.
Although Rakesh Sharma was the first Indian to go into space in 1984, the spacecraft he was in was not an Indian. Therefore, Gaganyaan will be the first human space mission designed and developed in India to illustrate the Prime Minister's vision "Make in India".
On September 21, 2019, ISRO CEO Dr. K Sivan said that the Gaganyaan mission is extremely important to India as it will strengthen the country's scientific and technological capabilities.
