ISRO MISSION: CHANDRAYAAN 2
This mission of ISRO is one of the great achievements for India and humanities also. Somehow this is not fully completed by just 2.1 km to the moon and soft landing of THE VIKRAM is not completed. In this blog, we are going to tell the whole thing about chandrayaan 2 mission and ISRO.
ISRO stands for Indian Space Research Organization
is the space agency of the government of India and have headquartered in Bengaluru. Chandrayaan 2
is an Indian lunar mission and which will go to somewhere where no other country has ever gone before i.e. South Polar Region of Moon
. This mission has an aim to collect different data and new discoveries from the moon which helps India and whole humanity for the future.
As we know after Chndrayaan 1 mission have discovered the existence of water on the moon so we need more information from this mission.
Why explore the South Polar Region of Moon?
Because of this region surface area remains more in the shadow other than any side. So there are many possibilities for the existence of water and fossil fuel also in this region.
ISRO said, “Chandrayaan-2 will attempt to soft-land the lander –Vikram and rover- Pragyan in a high plain between two craters, Manzinus C and Simpelius N, at a latitude of about 70° south.”
Launcher and the Spacecraft
1. GSLV Mk-III:-
Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III is designed to carry out Chandrayaan 2 to expected orbit.
The orbiter whose weight about 2,379 kg and has the Electric Power Generation Capability 1,000 W. It is placed in the moon’s orbit by the Launcher. It revolves around moon for 1` year but recently about some ours ago ISRO updated with the news that it has more fuel that’s why the life of orbiter is about 6 years almost.
3. Lander “The Vikram”:-
The Lader name is Vikram chosen on the behalf of Dr. Vikram A Sarabhai, the Father of the Indian Space Programme. Its weight is 1417 kg and has the Electric Power Generation Capability 650 W. It has the capability to communicate to the orbiter, Rover, and IDSN at Byalalu near Bengaluru. It is designed to function for one lunar day i.e. according to earth is 2 week.
4. Rover “Pragyan”:-
It is a robot type 6 wheeler vehicle and can travel upto 500m. It uses solar energy for its functioning and can communicate with the only lander.
AS AN INDIAN I SALUTE THE 11 YEAR DEDICATION TO MAKE THIS MISSION SUCCESSFUL BY ISRO
THEY INSPIRED TO ALL OF US FROM THEIR WORK.
THEY ARE DONE A LOT OF SUCCESSFUL MISSIONS LIKE LAUNCHING OF 104 SATELLITE IN ONE TIME, MISSON MARS, CHANDRAYAAN IN JUST 50 YEARS WITH LIMITED RESOURCE.
