Express News ServiceBENGALURU: The most crucial moment is the first 8.5 minutes of ascent in any launch, said American astronaut Colonel Benjamin Alvin Drew, NASA liaison to the Department of Space.
He was speaking to The New Indian Express on the sidelines of the symposium on human space flight programme organised by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and Astronautical Society of India here on Thursday.
He has worked on NASA’s International Space Station and has been on two space missions.
He gave two thumbs up to ISRO’s Gaganyaan rocket and crew module design, and said that he could have picked this design, had he been given a choice.
The crew module is the capsule which will shield the four astronauts in space.
