Just after months of a successful mission to Mars, India is set to achieve another frontier in space. The ISRO will launch a human crew module and retrieve it from the sea upon its re-entry. The crew module will blast off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, on board the GSLV-Mark III, which will be India's heaviest rocket till date. The crew module which does not carry any astronauts, will test its first flight, scheduled in 20 days from now. A simulated recovery was carried out recently.
