We can fulfil PM's promise: Isro chief on manned mission
BENGALURU: Hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the Human Spaceflight Programme (HSP), Isro chairman Sivan K said the space agency is confident of fulfilling Modi's promise to the country + .
"It came as a surprise to us, I was not expecting this but it is a great gift to Isro and we are confident of sending Indians to space in the next four years, although it is a tight schedule," Sivan said.
While acknowledging that Isro will now have to begin the process of identifying human resource and set up a project team, Sivan, however, said: " ... all along, critical technology for HSP was going on. The technology related for this project, like the crew module, environmental control and life support sy em have all been developed. India also has a flight suit and other sub-sy ems for flight suitalmost ready."
Confirming that the launch vehicle used will be the GSLV MK-III, he said: "We know that so far we've only had one flight, but the next one will be next month and we are confident of have 10-15 by the time of HSP," he said.
In his Independence Day address to the nation today, PM Modi vowed to put an Indian in space by 2022.
"When India celebrates 75th year of Independence in 2022, and if possible even before, an Indian son or daughter will undertake a manned space mission on board 'Gaganyaan' carrying the national flag," the PM announced from the ramparts of the Red Fort.

Challenge accepted by ISRO, "Jai Ho"
Something I liked about this go nment is that the names of various go nment schemes make sense, and are not named after po iticians. If it was congress then they would have named Human Space Program as "Soniya Gandhi Human Space Program", and "Gaganyaan" as "Rajiv Gandhi Space Vehicle".
We too have fa th in ISRO as the are capable of kee Modiji vision of manned mission alive and they definitely will make India proud once again and keep the nation Flag flying high
Mind you, there are almost no IIT graduates in ISRO. They are mostly out of this country making a quick buck . Infact they call USA as their own ''vatan'' ( own country)
Proud of Isro and Modi....
we want man on MOON. not just in space
