ISRO’s man mission in seven years, says Chief

India : India’s space agency ISRO is confident of carrying out a man mission to outer space within six to seven years, its Chairman Dr G Madhavan Nair said here on Saturday.

A detailed report on this had already been submitted to the Union Government by ISRO, Nair said at the ‘Space Salute’ programme organised by Asianet television channel jointly with ISRO to felicitate the scientists associated with the PSLV-C9 mission here.

Apart from its launch programmes, ISRO could make remarkable progress in areas like tele-medicine, tele-education and village resources centre, he said. Low-cost access to space, recoverable and re-usable launch vehicles were also objectives of ISRO, he said.

Eminent surgeon and health expert Dr M S Valyathan said while India made strides in its space programme it was behind some developing countries in the health sector. The task before the country was how to meet these twin challenges effectively, he said. Taking the fruits of science to the common people was the ultimate objective of Indian space programme, Director of Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) K Radhakrishnan said.
