“The motor start has not occurred in the ostensible course,” ISRO boss S Somnath said in his explanation following the episode, adding that “We need to figure out what turned out badly, will return soon.”

 

New Delhi: Indian space organization ISRO today put its most memorable practice run for its human spaceflight mission ‘Gaganyaan’ “on hold” 5 seconds from its booked hour of kickoff at 8:45 am IST.

“The test vehicle lift-off for the Gaganyaan mission couldn’t occur today,” ISRO boss S Somanath expressed minutes after the on-board PC cut short the takeoff of the rocket.

 

The present practice run was intended to convey different group security related payloads and lead its fundamental mission goals as a component of the main test in a progression of tests planned by ISRO.

 

The commencement started as planned and all went true to form till T-6 seconds when the rocket start launched six seconds before its expected takeoff plan. Taking a gander at this oddity, the on-board PC quickly superseded the takeoff at T-5 seconds and put the mission “on hold”.
