Chandrayaan 2: ISRO LOST CONNECTIVITY WITH CHANDRAYAAN -2 LANDER
According to the current news, The Indian Space Research Organization has lost contact with the Chandrayaan-2 Lander just before it was about to land on the moon’s surface. ISRO is analyzing the sudden breaking of the connection and instigating upon the data they got from Vikram’s Lander descent.
They are trying to make their connection again with the spacecraft. India second moon mission, Chandrayaan -2 was trying to land near about the south pole of the moon’s surface.chandrayaan’-2’s Lander Vikram is loaded with six-wheeled rover Pragyaan that was supposed to explore the lunar ground for about 14 earth days. The Chandrayaan -2 missions were also equipped with an orbiter that was assigned to be revolving around the moon a complete year.
Chandrayaan 2 India’s second unmanned lunar mission, Chandrayan 2, is taking India far away from the other countries in discovering new horizons in the field of science and technology. The Chandrayaan 2 is targeted to reach the South Polar Region on the moon which is not explored by any country till now.
The aim of this project is to improve our understanding of the moon, adding new discoveries that will benefit the interest of India and humanity as a whole. These discoveries and teachings goals at the transformation of the shift in how the lunar voyages should be approached in the coming years to propel further expeditions in the farthest frontiers.
Why all the celestial missions are majorly aimed at the moon.
Moon is the nearest celestial body on which various discoveries might be attempted and documented. it is, therefore, a promising testbed to show the important technological innovations which can be implemented in deep space missions. Chandrayaan 2 is designed to aim at the new generations of discovery, to boost our knowledge of space, assimilates the advantage of technologies, encourage global unity and to inspire the next generations of scientists and explorers.
Moon is the closest cosmic body through which the existence of earth can be idealized through earth’s early history. The moon surface is undisturbed by humanly aspirations and other external sources present on the earth today.
Referring to the moon’s atmosphere and surface, the early earth’s history can be predicted to some extent to add more knowledge which we have today about celestial bodies. There are some theories available on the history of origination of the moon, but it still needs further justifications.
Rigorous mapping of the lunar surface to explore changes on the lunar surface composition is necessary to track back its origin and evolution. Several shreds of evidence of water molecules which had been found by Chandrayaan-1 need further supporting theories in order to be justified completely in the science.
The further study of water molecules will be aimed on the configuration of water on the moon’s surface, below the surface and in the tenuous lunar exosphere to acknowledge the origin of water on the moon surface.
Moon provides the greater relativity to Earth’s early history.
It provides undisturbed authentic records of the inner Solar system environment. Exploring the lunar South Pole can bring many astonishing results as the lunar surface of the South Pole has not been targeted yet in any space mission and the surface area is much larger than the North Pole. Here, there is a great possibility to explore the new information from the authentic landscape. The South Pole has craters that have a history related to the early solar system of having fossils.
Why Chandrayaan 2 is so special.
Chandrayaan-2 is the 1st space mission to regulate a soft landing on the moon’s South Polar Region. It is 1st Indian expedition trying for a soft landing on moon’s lunar surface with locally grown technology. The primary Indian mission to expedite and explore the lunar surface with homegrown technologies.
By launching Chandrayaan-2, India has become the 4th country to attempt a soft landing on the lunar surface. So, our aspirations from this mission are to expand India’s footprints in space and encourage the younger generations of explorers, engineers, and scientists and enliven international aspirations.
The Chandrayaan-2 has various aims to cover by expanding the lunar scientific knowledge by doing a detailed study of topography, seismology, mineral identification and distribution, thermo-physical features of topsoil and characteristics of the tenuous lunar atmosphere, which should result in the new spheres of study about the origin and evolution of the moon.
