India’s very first mission to the Moon which was launched in October 2008, probably completed more than 3,400 orbits and also ejected a probe that discovered molecules of water on the surface for the first time. It also has specialized in launching low-cost space in the early 1960s, while rocket sections were usually transported by bicycle and were assembled by hand inside St. Mary Magdalene Church which is located in Thumba; It is a fishing village near the tip of the Indian peninsula.
India’s second moon mission “Chandrayaan-2” is scheduled to launch in July. “The window to launch is from July 9 to July 16 and the expected Moon landing is on September 6,” according to the update by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for April launch.
Also, an official of the space agency last week said Chandrayaan-2 mission had been further postponed to July due to the backdrop of Israel’s unsuccessful attempt of landing on Moon. “As we’ve seen Israel’s example and also don’t want to take any risk. Though Israel being such a technologically advanced country, the mission still failed. And, we want our mission to succeed.
Chandrayaan-2 was actually scheduled for launch in between January-February but ISRO had deferred it to March-April. ISRO is now very cautious about Chandrayaan-2, as it is to land on a celestial body, though wary of failure after Israel’s Beresheet spacecraft crashed on April 11 during moon landing.
Chandrayaan-2 being India’s much-delayed second moon mission, finally gets a launch window and also is scheduled to take off between July 9 to 16, 2019 and is expected to land on the lunar surface by September 6.
After so much delay, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) finally released the dates for Chandrayaan-2 which is 3290Kg which has three modules namely 1.orbiter 2.lander (Vikram) 3. Rover (Pragyan). Chandrayaan-2 mission will use the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mk III (GSLV Mk III) from Sriharikota to launch. Spacecraft might approximately take 35 to 45 days to reach the Moon after launch.
This is India’s second mission to the Moon which will have three modules i.e, an orbiter, a rover and a Lander, which are getting ready for the launch with an expected moon landing on Sept. 6.
This India’s second mission to the Moon, will seek a potential to study mining a source of waste-free nuclear energy which could be worth trillions of dollars, which is apart from other scientific experiments said K. Sivan, chairman of ISRO, in an interview last year. Also, the governments of the U.S.A, China, India, Japan and Russia are trying to compete with start ups and also billionaires like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson are to launch satellites,
