India has set ambitious space goals, announcing plans to send its first astronaut to the moon by 2040 and establish an Indian Space Station, named ‘Bharatiya Antariksha Station,’ by 2035. This announcement comes after India’s recent success in landing a spacecraft near the moon’s south pole, making it the fourth country to achieve a soft landing. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also urged scientists to focus on missions to Venus and Mars. Additionally, India is scheduled to conduct a test this week as part of its crewed space mission.
