ISRO today unveiled its half humanoid 'Vyommitra' for public view in Bengaluru. It will be placed in the first unmanned mission under Gaganyaan to "simulate most of the human body functions". "It will try to simulate a human and report back to us. We are doing this as an experiment," an ISRO scientist has been quoted as saying.

About the Gaganyaan Mission, ISRO Chief K Sivan said, "Four astronauts have been short-listed and they will go to Russia for training by this month-end. In 1984, Rakesh Sharma flew in a Russian module, but this time the Indian astronauts will fly in an Indian module from India. The Mission is not just about sending a human to space, this mission provides us an opportunities to build a framework for long term national and international collaborations and cooperation."

He added, "We all know that scientific discoveries, economic development, education, tech development and inspiring youth are coming goals for all nations. Human space flight provides a perfect platform to meet all these objectives."

Work on Chandrayaan-3 has started and is going at a full speed, he added.
