With India now ready with its manned moon mission, the European country France is also willing to extend cooperation in the mega mission.
The two countries have now announced a working group for Gaganyaan, ISRO’s first manned mission.
The mission had been announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on this very Independence Day.
The announcement was made at the sixth edition of the Bengaluru Space Expo by French space agency president Jean-Yves Le Gall.
It need be known that India plans to send three humans to space before 2022.
The Indian Space Research Organisation’s mission is significant as it would make India one of the four countries in the world after Russia, US and China to launch a manned space flight.
The two space agencies ISRO and CNES will be combining their expertise in fields of space medicine, astronaut health monitoring, life support, radiation protection, space debris protection and personal hygiene systems.
ISRO plans to conduct experiments on microgravity through its astronauts.
The two also have plans to work on Mars, Venus and asteroids.>
