5 Prominent Space Exploration Missions of ISRO By 2025
The 5 prominent & upcoming space science missions that Indian Space Research Organization will be performing by 2025 have been revealed in the Lok Sabha Parliament Session.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is renowned for having carried out space science missions including Mangalyaan (Mars Orbiter Mission), Chandrayaan 1 & 2 (Lunar Orbiter and Observation Missions), and others.
While the frequency of launches did decline during the epidemic years of 2020 and 2021, ISRO still has a full launch schedule for the years to follow.
2 Types of ISRO Launches
The majority of ISRO’s launches fall into one of two categories:
- National Missions, which are intended to meet India’s own strategic needs, and
- Commercial Missions, in which India offers its launch services to private businesses or foreign nations who pay to have their satellites launched from India.
National missions, however, involve more than merely the deployment of satellites for common uses like navigation, telecommunication, Earth observation, strategic usage, etc.

Space exploration and other national missions involving the study of other planets are also very important.
Such scientific endeavors are not only of a national scope, but also advantageous to the greater scientific community on a global scale.
List of 5 Great Space Science Missions By ISRO
The details of the upcoming ISRO’s Space Exploration science projects are as follows:
|SL||Name of Mission||Sanctioned Cost||Launch Schedule|
|1||Gaganyaan||9,023.00 Cr||2022 (Q4)|
|2||Aditya-L1||378.53 Cr||2023 (Q1)|
|3||Chandrayaan-3||250.00 Cr||2023 (Q1)|
|4||XPoSAT||60.00 Cr||2023 (Q2)|
|5||Space Docking Experiment||124.47 Cr||2024 (Q3)|
#ISRO #NewsUpdate : Here's 5 Space #science missions that #Indian space agency @isro will be performing by 2025.. The list with sanctioned cost, timeline, is as shared by @DrJitendraSingh in #LokSabha #ParliamentQuestion #ParliamentSession #India #space #Rocketry #launch pic.twitter.com/ddwERJ2PE4— Sidharth.M.P (@sdhrthmp) July 26, 2022
A research mission called Gaganyaan will launch Indian astronauts into orbit from an Indian spaceport and use an Indian rocket to do so.
Gaganyaan requires ISRO to fundamentally upgrade its GSLV Mark 3 cargo-carrier rocket and make it dependable enough to carry astronauts.
2. Aditya L1
Aditya L1 is an Indian satellite project designed to investigate related fields of research and examine the Corona (the Sun’s outer layers).
Chandrayaan-3 is the 3rd Lunar mission in the world and India’s 2nd Lunar Landing attempt.
The purpose of XPoSAT is to investigate the polarization of X-rays in space.
5. Space Docking Experiment
A project called the “Space Docking experiment” entails launching two distinct spacecraft and making sure they can dock and work together as a single body while in orbit.
The ability to undertake in-space refueling of satellites, construct a space station, transfer astronauts from one ship to another, etc. depends on this vital technology of in-space docking.
ISRO’s Crew Escape System
According to ISRO Chairman Dr.S. Somanath, ISRO would need to test its Crew Escape system in 2022, then launch its first unmanned mission in the middle of 2023.
Then ISRO will conduct two additional escape tests and a second unmanned mission before launching a manned flight (expected in 2024).
