Preparation Begins For Next Space Mission
Official Announced by ISRO at For Chandrayaan-2 named GSLV-F10 India’s next mission to the moon is a totally indigenous mission comprising of an Orbiter, Lander and Rover. After reaching the 100 km lunar orbit, the Lander housing the Rover will separate from the Orbiter.
After a controlled descent, the Lander will soft land on the lunar surface at a specified site and deploy a Rover. The mission will carry a six-wheeled Rover which will move around the landing site in semi-autonomous mode as decided by the ground commands. The instruments on the rover will observe the lunar surface and send back data, which will be useful for analysis of the lunar soil.
The Chandrayaan-2 weighing around 3290 kg and would orbit around the moon and perform the objectives of remote sensing the moon. The payloads will collect scientific information on lunar topography, mineralogy, elemental abundance, lunar exosphere, and signatures of hydroxyl and water-ice. GSLV-F10/Chandrayaan-2 Mission is planned during the first half of 2018.
Chandrayaan 2 India Next Mission to Moon
Chandrayaan-1 mission launched by ISRO in late October 2018. Chandrayaan-1 mission onboard a PSLV Rocket with two payloads, a lunar orbiter, and a lunar impactor. The impactor disturbed the surface at the landing site and collected for analysis .
Now Indian Space Research Organisation is on their unmanned second moon mission chandrayaan 2 will lift off in March 2018. Chandrayaan-2 Would be launched on a Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark 2 (GSLV Mk 2) that will blast off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. Exact Date of Launch not disclosed by ISRO in their Chandrayaan-2 Mission .
It totally indian with no collaboration last time ISRO first private sector built navigation Satellite Launch got failed in the launch .
The C39 launch vehicle had a problem, the heat shield has not separated. As a result of that, the satellite is inside the heat shield and we have to go through the detailed analysis to see what has happened,” he announced at the Mission Control Centre.
