ISRO Chief K Sivan has updated the media on the upcoming Gaganyaan mission. He also talked about the much-anticipated Chandrayaan-3 mission, which is likely later this year.

ISRO Chief K Sivan on Wednesday said that four astronauts short-listed for the Gaganyaan mission would go to Russia for training by month-end. Updating media on the development of the mission, Sivan added that the four Indian astronauts would fly in a module that will be from India.

“In 1984, Rakesh Sharma flew in a Russian module, but this time the Indian astronauts will fly in an Indian module from India,” K Sivan told ANI. 

On being asked whether ISRO is looking for another manned mission to the Moon, ISRO Chief K Sivan said, “Definitely someday but not immediately.”
