Inc42 Shots | ISRO’s Gaganyaan Mission Will Be Piloted By A Talking Robot

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), on Wednesday (January 22), unveiled a humanoid or human-robot named ‘Vyommitra’ which will be sent to space as part of the Gaganyaan mission, which is the most crucial mission in India’s human spaceflight programme.

Last month, ISRO had mentioned the launch of the first test-flight of Gaganyaan during the launch of geosynchronous satellite launch vehicle (GSLV) MKIII that will be carrying the humanoid to space by the end of 2020.

Once the humanoid is sent to space, ISRO scientists will be able to monitor the activities and progress of Vyommitra in order to prepare the robot for the manned mission in 2022.
