India takes a giant step in Space. Today India lunches its second mission for the moon that is. If this mission succeeds, then India will land on the moon surface in September 2019. After doing this India will join America, Russia, and China for landing on the moon surface. The Chandrayan 2 landing date on the moon is 7th September 2019(planned). As everyone knows the mission has completed every initial stage and Chandrayan is now in Moon Gravity Zone. If everything goes well Lunar Lander Vikram will land Moon’s the South Pole on 7th September 2019 with rover Pragyan.
CHANDRAYAN 2 MOON LANDING DATE – 7TH SEPTEMBER 2019. Chandryan 2
ISRO(Indian Space Research Organisation) confirmed the successful launch of the rocket GSLV MkIII, which is carrying the spacecraft. The spacecraft will land between plain surface between two of the moon’s craters Simpelius N and Manzinus C. If ISRO succeeds to do this then India becomes first to achieve a soft and controlled landing near the south pole of the moon. This is a strong move of India in Space.
The Rocket is 142-feet tall and was set to launch on July 15, 2019, from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. But due to some technical issues, ISRO postponed it before less than an hour from the launch(the issues were a technical glitch) and was resolved last week before the launch. Related Post- GSLV MkIII
About Chandryaan 2
Chandrayaan 2 is a technological marvel for India. GSLV MkIII is carrying a Lunar Lander called as Vikram and a six-wheeled rover known as Pragyan. The Lunar Lander is named in the honor of Vikram Sarabhai father of ISRO. The budget of the mission is $141 million which is lower than those of the other country and this is approximately half of the budget of the recently released blockbuster movie Avengers: Endgame that is awesome and now we say that Now India has mastered the game of low budget space mission. Chandrayan 2 is unique from others because it will explore the Moon’s the South Pole, which nobody has ever done. This mission will give us new knowledge of the moon.
The main aim of this mission is to analyze the minerals on the South pole of the moon. The south pole of the moon is not studied yet. To study the surface of the south pole of the moon the rover Pragyan is equipped with instruments like Spectrometer and cameras and some others to map the new Lunar surface. These instruments will look for water and will measure moonquakes and the temperature of the soil. We all know this is not the first mission of India for the moon.
In 2008 India sent an orbiter called Chandrayaan 1 played a major role in finding the evidence of water on the moon surface.
As an Indian, we should feel proud of this achievement.
Vikram Lander is in Tilted Position on Moon Surface
It is not yet confirmed by ISRO, but there is a chance that Vikram is in tilted position on Moon’s surface. The orbiter sent a thermal image of the orbiter on Sunday that makes ISRO find the location of the Lander. K Sivan Chairman of ISRO said that
Vikram Lander descent was as planned and normal performance was observed till the altitude of 2.1 km. Subsequently the communication from the lander to ground station was lost the data is being analyzed.
But today there is news coming out that lander Vikram crash-landed on Moon surface but in a safe way. The antennas of the Vikram suppressed that is why ISRO is not able to make contact with lander but ISRO scientist are trying their best to make communication with Vikram if the connection is made then Vikram can Stand on their feet. Hope for the best.
And at last congrats to ISRO(Indian Space Research Organisation).
