Future Space Missions

Aditya-L1

Expected Launch-26 Aug 2023

Aditya-L1 is the first observatory-class mission from India that will use a solar coronagraph to examine the solar corona as well as a near-UV instrument to explore the chromosphere. While the real-time payload monitors the solar events as they travel from the Sun to Earth, X-ray spectroscopic equipment will produce flare patterns.

X-ray Polarimeter Satellite

Expected launch- 2023

To examine the polarization of cosmic X-rays, ISRO is developing the X-ray Polarimeter Satellite (XPoSat). It will be put into operation in 2023 using a Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (SSLV) and will have a minimum lifespan of five years. Pulsars, black hole X-ray binaries, active galactic nuclei, and non-thermal supernova remnants are just a few of the 50 brightest sources in the universe that will be studied by XPoSat.

Gaganyaan-1

Expected Launch- mid 2023

The Indian Human Spaceflight Program will be built around the manned orbital spacecraft Gaganyaan (“Orbital Vehicle”), which is being together produced by ISRO and HAL. Three people may travel in the spacecraft, and an updated model that is in the works will include rendezvous and docking capabilities. Before the first operated journey, there will be two further flight tests.

Gaganyaan-2

Expected Launch- 2023-2024

Prior to the first crewed mission, there will be two further flight tests.

NISAR

Expected launch- Jan 2024

A dual-frequency synthetic aperture radar satellite for remote sensing will be developed and launched as part of the NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar (NISAR) friendly project between NASA and ISRO. Being the first dual-band radar imaging satellite, it is significant.

Shukrayaan-1

Expected Launch- Dec 2024

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) intends to send an orbiter to Venus to research Venus’ atmosphere. This project is known as the Indian Venus orbiter mission.

Mangalyaan-2

Expected Launch- 2024

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) plans to launch Mars Orbiter Mission 2 (MOM 2), also known as Mangalyaan 2, as India’s second interplanetary mission in the 2021–2022 timeframe. According to ISRO Chairman K. Sivan in an interview, it would only consist of an orbiter. Initially, there was a chance that it might also include a lander and a rover, but later it was fully verified that it will only be an orbiter mission.

Gaganyaan-3

Expected Launch- 2025

First mission with the Gaganyaan crew. If successful, India would become the fourth nation in the world (after the United States, the Soviet Union, and China) to launch humans into space on its own.

How does a Rocket blast off?

It is chemical explosions that launch spaceships into orbit. Fuel is burned inside a rocket to create a jet of hot, expanding gas. Any fuel combination can be utilized, but it always results in an explosive chemical reaction. An explosive chemical reaction occurs in a small chamber and discharges gases into a cone-shaped nozzle at the back of the rocket because a rocket needs thrust to escape Earth’s gravity. The gases are accelerated by the cone form and shoot out of the engine at up to 9,941 miles per hour (15,998 km/h).

What do astronauts wear in space?

The various body pieces, such as the arms and legs, join together to create a personalized fit for space suits, which come in various sizes. The outer suit is typically comprised of numerous layers of materials such as Dacron, nylon, and aluminum (Mylar); the inside suit typically includes a layer of tubing that is filled with a cool liquid. The spacesuit’s center section, which covers the torso and is composed of rigid fiberglass, has boots that are attached to the legs. The current space suit resembles a modern set of armour that is worn over the head overall. Life-support systems, cameras, and other space exploration-related equipment are stored in built-in backpacks.
