CHENNAI: The unmanned crew module of Indian Space Research organisation’s GSLV MkIII rocket that was retrieved by Indian Coastguard in the Bay of Bengal off Andaman and Nicobar Islands would reach the shores of Ennore Port on Sunday.
A Ennore Port spokesman told Express that Coast Guard ship ICGS Samudra Paheredar which tracked the crew module, will bring it to Kamarajar Port Iron Ore Berth at 11 am.
It is learnt that Indian Space Research Organization chairman K Radhakrishnan and other top ISRO officials would be present during the occasion.
From the port, the crew module which is approximately 3.73 tonne in weight, would be transported to Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre at Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala for further study.
Indian coastguard along with ISRO officials on board, recovered the crew module along with its divers on board, after a Dornier aircraft from Campbell Bay of Great Nicobar Island signaled her about its location while carrying out surveillance in the area.
The successful testing of the unmanned crew module paves the way for India to send humans on space.
