ISRO’s Female Robot ‘Vyommitra’ to Fly Into Space in 3rd Quarter of 2024

New Delhi: India’s space research organization ISRO is planning to send its female robot astronaut ‘Vyommitra’ into space in the third quarter of 2024, ahead of the ambitious manned ‘Gaganyaan’ mission.

According to the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology Dr Jitendra Singh, while a manned mission “Gaganyaan” is scheduled to be launched in 2025, the ‘Vyommitra’ Mission is scheduled for the third quarter of 2024.

It will precede the launch of India’s first-ever manned Space flight named “Gaganyaan”. The Gaganyaan project will take a crew of Indian astronauts into an orbit of 400 Kilometres and then bring them back safely to Earth by landing them in the sea on Indian coast.

The name of the ISRO robot destined to fly into space is the combination two Sanskrit words, “Vyoma” (meaning Space) and “Mitra” (meaning Friend). This robot has the capability to monitor Module Parameters, issue Alerts and execute Life Support operations. It can perform tasks such as operating six panels and responding to queries.

Vyommitra astronaut will simulate human functions in the Space environment and interact with the Life Support System.
