By express news service

Thiruvananthapuram: The Indian Space Research Organization has a history of stunning the world by conducting space missions at incredibly low costs. In line with this legacy, ISRO has now set its eyes on the Venus mission at a cost of Rs 500 crore to Rs 1,000 crore.

“The cost will depend on the expansion of the instrumentation. If you put in a lot of payload equipment, the cost will naturally go up,” ISRO Chairman S Somanath said on Friday.

While international space agencies like NASA spend huge amounts on space missions, ISRO opts for budget missions. ISRO’s Chandrayaan-1 was a budget spaceship that was built at a cost of just Rs 386 crore. The cost of Chandrayaan-2 mission was Rs 603 crore while its launch was done for Rs 367 crore.

Even as there are reports that ISRO is eyeing a December 2024 window to launch the Venus mission, Somnath said the program is yet to be finalised. It will be announced only after the final approval by the central government.
