Indian human spaceflight is at beginning stage, says ISRO

Indian human space flight programme is at the ‘beginning stage’ and space scientists were studying the critical technologies required for the project, ISRO Chairman K Radhakrishnan said on Wednesday. ‘As far as human space flight is concerned, we are just at the beginning- at the moment we are studying the critical technologies required for that like- crew escape system, crew module... these are the things we have not done in the past,’ Radhakrishnan said. He said, ‘As and when we take up a programme of human space flight- this will help us.’  Illustrating the requirements for the human space flight, he said ‘we need a reliable launch vehicle with a reliability of 0.99, on Wednesday we can say GSLV has gone well- but we need to improve the reliability of that.’
