In what’s India’s one of the most ambitious projects, the country’s space agency is planning to launch its own space station. Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief K Sivan made the announcement today.

India is targeting to launch a 20-tonne space station by 2030, which will most likely be used to conduct microgravity experiments.

“The preliminary plan for the space station is to accommodate astronauts for upto 15-20 days in space, but specific details will emerge after the maiden manned mission, Gaganyaan, is complete,” reported PTI.
