India planning own space station: ISRO chief
India is planning to launch its own space station, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman K. Sivan said on Thursday.
The ISRO is also planning to launch two other missions – to study the Sun and Venus, he said.
The space station, which is estimated to weigh around 20 tonnes, would be an extension of the Gaganyaan mission — India’s first manned mission into space.
“India will set up its separate space station in the next 5-7 years after Gangayaan is successfully completely in 2022,” Sivan told reporters here.
