By James O’BrienPublished May 09, 2018 11:30:01India has become a leader in space suit manufacturing, as the nation makes its own spacesuits for military and commercial purposes, and the country is now building a new space suit that can withstand extreme conditions in space.
In a recent interview with India Today, Dr. Arvind Singh, chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation, said India has invested in manufacturing spacesuits in space, and is now making new spacesuits, such as the NanoSpace suit, that can be used by astronauts in orbit.
“We are building space suits for military purposes and commercial uses.
We have invested in space suits and we have invested into NanoSpace and NanoSpace has been the leader in this sector,” Singh said.”
The space suits are made in India and India is leading in this.
So this is a very important development.
We are now looking at all possibilities for using NanoSpace suits in space.”
Singh said India’s space program is currently in the process of setting up a facility for space missions.
“I have a team of specialists working on this space suit.
It’s a very exciting area,” he said.
Singh is in charge of the country’s space agency, the National Aeronautics Research Organisation.
The Indian Space Mission Corporation (NSMC), which runs the countrys space program, is responsible for space launch and scientific missions.
Singham said NSMC will be investing in nano-technology and nano-structures for space applications.
He said India is looking to develop space suits that can survive in extreme conditions on Earth.
“It is very important to know that the Nano Space suit is a space suit, it is made of nano materials, so the space suit is not going to have to be made from recycled materials.
So it can survive outside the atmosphere,” Singh explained.”
If you want to develop a space environment, you need to be able to withstand the pressure of high-temperature, and that is the environment in which nano space suits can be developed,” Singh added.
The NSMC also plans to set up a new nano-space lab in the Indian capital, Delhi, where Nano Space suits can work in extreme temperatures.
Singh said Nano Space will be made of different materials.
“A lot of people are looking for space suits.
So Nano Space is really a way of making the space suits affordable,” he explained.
India’s Space Agency, India’s National Aerodrome, and its space agency partners are also working on nano-capable space suits, Singh said, adding that India is also building nano-sensors, micro-electronics, nanotechnology, and sensors for space exploration.
“So I think we have a great potential to take NanoSpace forward,” Singh told India Today.
India, a country of 3.2 billion people, is the world’s second-largest producer of space suits after China, with about 40 percent of the global market.
India is currently the only country in the world that does not have a permanent space program.
India has also launched a number of space missions in recent years, such for a Mars mission in 2019 and the first human-to-human docking of an unmanned spacecraft in 2019.
Singhan said India will build the Nano-Space suit for the first manned mission in 2021.
“In 2021, we will send NanoSpace to the International Space Station, we want to send Nano Space to the Moon, and then Nano Space should be the first space suit to reach the Moon.
That’s our plan for 2021,” he added.”
That’s what Nano Space can do.
Nano Space has been one of the leaders in space science and engineering, so it’s important to have that expertise,” Singh continued.
