BENGALURU: Emphasising that ‘Gaganyaan’ mission will mark the beginning of India’s ambitions plans to build its own space station, air commodore Ravish Malhotra (Retd.), who along with wing commander Rakesh Sharma (Retd.) was picked for the joint Indo-Soviet space expedition in 1984, says sooner than later women engineers of Isro will make it to space on board an Indian rocket.

Air commodore Ravish Malhotra (Retd.) told Deccan Chronicle that with the crew capsule designed to seat three members, a woman engineer of the Indian space agency would make the cut soon.

 

“With so many women engineers working in Isro, I am sure that an engineer will take the third seat (in the crew module). I think something like that will be on the agenda over a period of time because ‘Gaganyaan’ will not be a one shot attempt like we witnessed in 1984,” he added.

He said ‘Gaganyaan’ would symbolise the “Yes, we can do it” moment for the country while opening up avenues for collaboration with other space faring nations in the realm of human space flights and the possibility of building colonies on other planets.
