India moves to put its first man in space by 2016

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 4 years ago

Space 2

An anonymous reader writes "India plans to launch its first manned space mission in 2016, moving to become the fourth nation to put a man in space.

Space scientists and senior officials of the state-run ISRO are preparing a pre-project report to build the
infrastructure and facilities for the mission, estimated to cost a $2.76 billion.

"We are planning a human space flight in 2016, with two astronauts who will spend seven days in the Earth's lower orbit," Radhakrishnan told reporters at ISRO headquarters in Bangalore.

In September, India's Chandrayaan-1 satellite discovered water on the moon, boosting India's credibility
among established space-faring nations"
