Meet Vyommitra: The Woman Robot Astronaut Set to Conquer Space with ISRO's Gaganyaan Mission

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is making history with its ambitious ‘Gaganyaan’ mission, which will be India’s first human-manned space flight carrying Indian astronauts to space. As part of this groundbreaking mission, ISRO has designed a female robot astronaut named ‘Vyommitra’, who will fly into space ahead of the manned mission.

According to Union Minister of State for Science, Technology and Space Jitendra Singh, the unmanned mission with Vyommitra is scheduled for the third quarter of this year, while the manned Gaganyaan mission is set to be launched next year. The name Vyommitra is derived from two Sanskrit words, ‘Vyoma’ meaning space and ‘Mitra’ meaning friend. This female astronaut robot is equipped with the ability to monitor module parameters, issue alerts, run life support operations, operate panels, and answer queries.

Jitendra Singh further explained that Vyommitra is designed to simulate human functions in the space environment and interact with the life support system. This demonstrates ISRO’s commitment to developing advanced technology for future space missions.

In preparation for the Gaganyaan mission, ISRO conducted a test flight with TV D1 test vehicle last year to qualify the crew escape system and parachute system. Human qualification of the launch vehicle is complete and all propulsion stages are enabled. With these preparations underway, ISRO is on track to launch its first manned space flight next year.

The Gaganyaan project aims to demonstrate India’s human space capabilities by launching a crew of astronauts into a 400-kilometer orbit and safely returning them to Earth by landing them in Indian sea waters. This marks a significant milestone in India’s space exploration efforts and showcases its growing expertise in space technology.

The upcoming flights of Vyommitra and Gaganyaan represent a major leap forward for India’s space program. These missions will not only pave the way for future human exploration of outer space but also solidify India’s position as a key player in global space research and technology.
