India continuing work on moon landing and crewed spaceflight plans despite delays

India’s second attempt at landing a spacecraft on the moon will likely be pushed to 2023, according to the head of the country’s space agency.

S. Somanath, chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), told Indian news channel NewsX that the Chandrayaan 3 lunar lander is in the assembly phase but teams are still testing vital systems, meaning the launch, previously slated for August, could be delayed until next year.
