    So unmanned Gaganyaan is on track whereas the manned Gaganyaan has been delayed by only 1 year. Not a big deal I would say, let's hope they don't delay it anymore.

    Oh so the original date was supposed to be 2022 but they delayed it to 2024. (2 years of Delay!)

    Several sources have made a comment in the last few days saying that : "Chandrayaan-3 launch by 2022-end, Gaganyaan manned mission in 2024" SOURCES :- https://www.wionews.com/india-news/chandrayaan-3-launch-by-2022-end-gaganyaan-manned-mission-in-2024-minister-jitendra-singh-480460...

    In space there is no friction because there is no fluid in space, space is a vacuum, for example in space if you manage to accelerate yourself to 10 kms/sec than that means you will be able to travel 10 continuosly. But like I said again, NASA Already confirmed that they had used Gravity Assist...

    Another way to achieve acceleration of a space craft in space is by the utilisation of Gravity Assist. (~Basically you use the gravity of a planet to sling-shot your craft to alter the path and speed of a spacecraft, typically to save propellant and reduce expense~)

    This is the official website of NASA, they too are mentioning about Gravity Assist. I don't know what you meant by Delta V. Other than the website which I shared, you will find several other sources on the internet which confirm the usage of Gravity Assist...

    NASA's Dawn spacecraft was Propelled at a speed of 11.46 KM per second (25,640 mph), not 11 kms/s as told by you. And by the way, achieving speed of a spacecraft is not possible by only an engine on the craft, it can also be achieved by sling-shoting from the orbit of a planet. When we talk...
