India’s first human ocean mission ‘Samudrayan’ launched

India's first human ocean mission, 'Samudrayan,' has been launched, joining six other nations in exploring the ocean depths for research and studies. Union minister Jitendra Singh, who launched the expedition on Friday, said India has made significant progress in science and technology, and that when an Indian climbs into space as part of the Gaganyaan programme, another will dive deep into the ocean.

"India's First Manned Ocean Mission, #Samudrayan, was launched in Chennai. India has joined a small group of countries that have such underwater vehicles, including the United States, Russia, Japan, France, and China. Singh tweeted, "A new chapter starts to investigate ocean resources for drinking water, renewable energy, and the blue economy."

The ocean project that has been started has a great deal of power, for instance.

1. The Samudrayan initiative's deep-sea vehicle, the Matsya 6000, is planned to transport three people in a titanium alloy personnel sphere with a 2.1-meter diameter enclosed interior.

2. The Samudrayan project, which will be led by the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT), would be part of the Deep Ocean Mission, which will cost $6,000 crore.

3. It will have a 12-hour endurance and a 96-hour reserve in the event of an emergency.

4. It has the potential to work at depths ranging from 1000 to 5500 metres.
