Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief K Sivan spoke about the country's first manned space mission, 'Gaganyaan' on Tuesday. The ISRO head said the four men shortlisted for the programme will receive physical fitness training in Russia for 11 months, but the first spaceflight in December 2021 may carry just one person. India will send astronauts to the low earth orbit, an earth-centred orbit with an altitude of 2,000km.
