“Heavenly ship”: Indian cosmonauts will begin training in Russia


According to the head of the Indian Organization for Space Research (ISRO) Kailashavadivu Sivan, a number of developments on the program of the Gaganyan mission have been completed.


In January of this year, four cosmonauts from India (who exactly is not specified) will begin preparations for the national mission in Russia, Dr. Sivan told the press. He explained to reporters that last year the Indians had made significant progress in the Gaganyan program. According to the results, four cosmonauts were selected in the Indian Air Force.

There is no clarification on the composition and gender of the selected group. Recall that in 2018 N. Modi suggested that the “daughter of India” could appear on board the national manned ship. In addition, the Indian prime minister said that his state itself would send the first space crew into orbit by 2022, the 75th anniversary of the country's independence.

The flight, for which preparations will soon begin, is planned for an earlier date - the end of 2021. The name "Gaganyan" is translated as "Heavenly ship."

Training astronauts is a long business. Minister of State D. Singh, curator of the space industry, and at the same time the nuclear industry, said that the preparation process for the flight could take from one and a half to two years.

      Why not give? They have their own personal ship. Let him at least be a grinder in orbit. This is their sovereign right.

      I don’t know what about the Pakistanis, but the Indians studied with us in the techie. I haven’t seen such boobies yet, hehe .. laughing
      I think that it will turn out like in a joke about a Vietnamese cosmonaut: "Russian comrades beat me all the time and said:" Do not touch this button, do not touch this lever! "

        And yet they taught them to shoot down the Amer "phantoms .." ..
        I read memoirs, there was a special guard for our specialists there, in case of bombing, they covered our bodies with our bodies .. Ours was indignant, but the Vietnamese kept saying, “We have an order, you are more precious than gold to us, etc.!”

              It also seemed to me that at a micro-momentum, but I decided to put and study on the stop, which was unnecessary.

    on board the national manned ship may appear "daughter of India."

    The daughter is still where it did not go, the main thing is that the elephants and the sacred cows would not appear wink

      In general, we also either into space either portraits of Gagarin with Tsiolkovsky, then send the Olympic flame. Elon Musk did his best roadster to Mars.
      The point here is not the expediency of the cow in orbit, but the demonstration of the possibility itself.
      Tomorrow a huge ship for an elephant (and you still create it), and a week later, on its basis, a passenger rocket of 50 people at least.
      The Roadster Mask is by the way also "crap only at first sight", and rovers and other bulky equipment to the moon will still have to be delivered somehow.

    The tradition, however, the FIRST Indian cosmonaut Rakesh Sharma, Hero of the Soviet Union, flew into space in 1984 as part of the crew of the Soviet Soyuz T-11 spacecraft together with Yuri Malyshev and Gennady Strekalov.

    It would be cool if the Indians, before the United States, send astronauts in their own national ship, taking into account the fact that India launched its first satellite only in 1979 and the United States in 1981, the Spey Shuttle.

      The head of NASA on New Year’s Eve said that they conducted quite a lot of tests, and most likely the manned flight will be on schedule. No extra unmanned launch.

      It's fun. A mask is pulled for each rivet. Boeing generally does not do a separate MaxQ test, it did not reach the ISS. But everything is ok. wink Lobbyism he is.

        And who will be the pilot, Head of NASSA?

          1) Crew:
          Christopher Ferguson - 3 space flights, now the chief pilot of the Boeing space program.

          Michael Fincke - 3 space flights, 381 days in orbit, 48 hours of work in a spacesuit outside the spacecraft.

          Nicole Aunapu Mann - the first space flight.



          2) Moreover, they found the problem and fixed it, or rather thoroughly redid the entire system. However, the Boeing objectively mows a lot more, with parachutes and tests, and flight to the ISS in test form. If Musk had squinted like that, he would have been kicked out of the program.

            Such promptness suggests the manual control of the ship.

        I say: if NASA had not slowed down the Mask, he would have already managed to send astronauts at his own risk.
        Air companies hire test pilots for the craziest military aircraft projects, and no one pests them with safety equipment, parachutes, etc.

    Indians have 7 Fridays a week. Now it’s kind of like they are betting on us, then they can easily spread to the Americans
    In addition, it is not entirely clear how ours will prepare Indian cosmonauts for flight on an Indian ship. Is there even a workable model of the Indian ship for at least the creation of a simulator. Or will we prepare for flights on the Soyuz, and then they will be sent on their Gaganyan?

      We have such a concept - OKP, general space training, it includes not so much mastering the simulator as survival skills in an environment aggressive to humans. Well, with the coolant of their ship, we will help them.

      But what about the Americans at the time, on the Shuttles, 10 people flew, and among them anyone?
      Both housewives and primary school teachers ... It seems, they said, anyone with a healthy heart and normal pressure can fly.
      Problems only with long flights.

    Well, if only OKP will be held. Namely, work on simulators. Here, either we must create something universal, or "force" them to do, as motorists say, "mincemeat" is similar to our new ship.
    But actually, wait and see. And Happy New Year!
