space flight

India took a big leap in the world of space science with the success of Chandrayaan-3 in July this year. After this, in September, ISRO sent one of its spacecraft to study the Sun under the Aditya L-1 mission. Preparations for ISRO’s mission Gaganyaan are also going on in full swing, under which India will send two of its astronauts to space from its soil, in its spacecraft. There is a possibility that it can be launched in the year 2025. India has now set two more big goals – construction of a space station by 2035 and a mission to send humans to the Moon by 2040.

Man’s first steps on the Moon took place on July 20, 1969, when America’s Apollo 11 spacecraft was preceded by Neil Armstrong, followed by Edwin Aldrin, and landed on the Moon. After this there were six more such campaigns in which five were successful. Till now a total of 12 humans have gone to the moon. But, NASA ended the Apollo missions after 1972, the main reason for which was the excessive expenditure on missions. India’s space missions are also appreciated because they are less expensive. In such a situation, India can achieve another big achievement by sending humans to the moon. Prime Minister Modi has set another big target of building ‘Indian Space Station’ by 2035.

A space station is like a laboratory located in low Earth orbit. By staying there, astronauts get the experience of living outside gravity, and get help in preparing for upcoming missions. They started in the last century during the Cold War between America and the former Soviet Union. Since 1971, 12 such space stations have been built. The largest among these is the International Space Station, which is jointly run by America, Russia, Canada, Japan and the European Space Agency. But it is understood that due to expenses and differences it will be scrapped by 2030.

Apart from this, China has built its own space station. Space missions definitely cost money, but there are many benefits. Firstly, the image of the country becomes stronger. Then the culture of science develops in the country. Apart from this, work like launching satellites of other countries also earns money. In such a situation, India should continue its space missions with full determination and confidence.
