Gaganyaan mission: PM Modi to reveal names of 4 test pilots during VSSC visit

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to disclose the names of four test pilots undergoing training for India’s Gaganyaan Mission during his visit to the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) on Tuesday. The visit is to review preparations for the mission, with one test pilot hailing from Kerala.

The four test pilots completed their training in Russia and are now at a unit of ISRO, familiarizing themselves with the mission. Three of them will be aboard the Indian-crewed orbital spacecraft. The PM will also inaugurate three facilities including the Trisonic Wind Tunnel and Semi-cryogenic Integrated Engine at ISRO Propulsion Complex, Mahendragiri.

In addition, the PSLV Integration Facility at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Andhra Pradesh will also be inaugurated by PM Modi during his visit to the VSSC in Kerala. The Prime Minister is scheduled to arrive at the VSSC center at 10.45 a.m. on Tuesday and will spend an hour there. This visit signifies a significant step in India’s space exploration journey.
