New Delhi: Union Minister Jitendra Singh said on Sunday that space tourism will be possible in India very soon. He informed that the Indian Space Research Organization i.e. ISRO is in the process of developing indigenous capabilities towards space tourism through demonstration of human space flight capability to Low Earth Orbit.

Space tourism is currently very expensive. In April this year, the American company Axiom Space had made 3 businessmen travel to the International Space Station (ISI). According to the report, about Rs 420 crore was charged from a passenger.

At present, companies like Axiom Space and SpaceX are engaged in making markets in this sector in collaboration with the American space agency NASA. In response to a question in the Rajya Sabha, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said that the National Space Promotion and Authorization Center (IN-SPACe) also sought to increase the active participation of the private sector in these activities, including the inclusion of space tourism.

Responding to a question on space diplomacy, the Union Minister said that ISRO has taken forward international cooperation and relations with 61 countries in various fields of space activities.

In response to another question, Jitendra Singh said that the Department of Space is in the process of formulating a comprehensive Integrated Space Policy, which will guide the activities of the private space industry.

Significantly, the National Space Promotion and Authorization Center (IN-SPACe) is a single window agency under the Department of Space to involve and authorize the private sector in the field of space research.

ISRO is also working on its first manned space flight under Mission Gaganyaan. Recently it was told by the government that the Indian Space Research Organization will achieve the achievement of sending humans to space by next year.

In a press conference, Union Minister Jitendra Singh had told that next year 2 astronauts of India will go to space under ISRP’s mission Gaganyaan. Two tests are set to be conducted by the end of this year. In the first test, the unmanned vehicle will be sent to space.

Whereas in the second time the vehicle will go into space with a robot. This robot has been named Vyomitra. After analyzing the results of the trial, ISRO will take a final decision on sending human astronauts to space.
