Thought for the day

"The unfortunate thing about this world is that good habits are so much easier to give up them bad ones."

---- Somerset Maugham

Will you be this?

 

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is roping in Indian Air Force pilots to identify the first set of astronauts for a human space flight. IAF pilot Rakesh Sharma is the only Indian to have travelled in space. He flew aboard the Soviet rocket Soyuz T-11 in 1984. Kalpana Chawla, one of the seven crew members who died in the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster in 2003, was an American astronaut of Indian origin. In July 2018, ISRO tested a crew escape system (CES), which is a capsule that ejects from a rocket if it explodes on the launch pad. The CES is a series of technology building blocks that ISRO is developing for an eventual mission to carry astronauts to space. It is a crucial emergency escape measure designed to quickly pull the spacecraft that houses the astronauts to a safe distance from the launch vehicle in the event of a rocket explosion.
