PostSubject: Indian Space Research Organisation hunt on for vyomanauts – desi astronauts   Sat Jan 02, 2010 4:57 am

The hunt for India’s first astronauts — ‘vyomanauts’ in a desi tweak — has begun. Two of the four selected vyomanauts (vyoma means ‘space’ or ‘sky’ in Sanskrit) will finally go on India’s first manned space mission scheduled to lift off in 2015.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) is laying down criteria for short-listing 200 Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter pilots, from whom four will be selected for the space mission, director-general of medical services, IAF, Air Marshal P Madhusoodanan told DNA.
While two vyomanauts will finally go on the space mission, the other two will remain in reserve.
