India conducted its first 'Gaganyan' (Sky Vehicle) test which lasted 8.8 minutes. It involved a single phase liquid fuel rocket to launch a crew module. The flight went 11.7 km up when the abort procedure was initiated as planned. The crew module splashed down in sea about 10 km from the launch site. There will be many more tests before an astronaut goes up.

The Print is an anti-Modi publication. 'Times of India' also published a similar image, but I was not able to find it on Google. That was better. Times of India is the largest English newspaper in India, and that is what I use (though I have problems with it, they use less ink. Some times I find it difficult to read). The second rank in Delhi goes to 'Hindustan Times'. Both are 'middle of the road' newspapers. I also searched for an official image from Indian Space Research Orgnization, but I there also was not successful. So, I had no option other than using the Print image.

Here is another image, much like the Times of India image from https://hindi.opindia.com/national/...first-tv-d1-test-for-sending-humans-to-space/
