The process for selecting three astronauts for India’s first manned space flight will begin at the earliest to give them enough time to train for the 2022 mission, which is slated to cost less than ₹10,000 crore. ISRO Chairman, K Sivan, on Tuesday said the three astronauts chosen for India's first manned spaceflight would enter into low-Earth orbit at 400 km "within 16 minutes of launch from Sriharikota". After conducting microgravity experiments for 5-7 days, the crew module would separate from the service module and make a splashdown within 36 minutes into the Arabian Sea, Sivan added.
