Chandrayaan-2 ‘Stronger than ever’: India set to launch rescheduled Moon mission

With these missions, ISRO has also been signalling a distinct change in its priorities - henceforth, it would be an agency engaged mainly in space and inter-planetary exploration, while other ventures like commercial satellite launches would only be secondary activities.

"The soft landing will take place at a point where no spacecraft has landed-the South Pole of the moon".

ISRO Chairman Dr K Sivan told reporters at Chennai Airport this morning that the technical snag that occurred in the rocket GSLV-Mark-Three on July 15 has been fully rectified.

Chandrayaan-2 will take 48 days to accomplish the task of landing on the moon through meticulously planned orbital phases, ISRO has said.

The payload of Chandrayaan-2 consists of a lunar orbiter, a lunar lander and a lunar rover and will be launched atop the ISRO-developed GSLV Mk-III rocket.

The lander and rover are headed for the lunar south pole, exploring a scientifically important region that has been shown to contain water ice.

At the time of launch, the Chandrayaan 2 Orbiter will be capable of communicating with the Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN) at Byalalu, as well as with the Vikram lander.

The orbiter, which has a mission life of a year, will take images of the lunar surface, and "sniff" the tenuous atmosphere. The wheeled rover will move on the lunar surface and will perform various chemical analyses.

How long is the journey to the Moon?

Just like the protagonist of the film lifted a heavy Lingam in one of its scenes, the rocket will carry the 3.8-tonne Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft.

Hopefully, fans who attended the panel at least got a bit of value for the money that they spent for the gathering. Speaking about Jamie Lannister's fate specifically, Coster-Waldau said he feels it was a "great" ending.

The distance between the Earth and the moon is about 3.844 lakh km.

The Pragyaan rover will roll out of the Vikram lander carrying an array of scientific instruments meant to study the lunar surface.

He explained that those who had been controlling the spacecraft until then would have no role to play in those crucial moments.

Lander will hover at 100 meters above the lunar surface and gradually begin its descent.

Almost 1,000 engineers and scientists have worked on this mission. There is a possibility of the presence of water in permanently shadowed areas around it, the agency said, adding craters in the South Pole region have cold traps and contain fossil record of the early solar system.

Gauhar believes that the scientists stay under pressure till the last moment while launching any complex mission. But for the first time, Isro has chosen women to lead an interplanetary expedition.

"It is because of these reasons that Chandrayaan-2 has attracted attention not only from the Indian scientists but also from global scientists", he said.

Two women are steering India's journey to the Moon.
