Changes will be made if necessary. Then finally on December 2021, Gaganyaan will be sent to space with three passengers. Dr K.K. Sivan said that both unmanned missions are necessary so that all the necessary systems can be examined because ISRO does not want to take any risk before humans are sent to space.
