Chandra-yaan-2 is all set for launch, Every INDIAN has to know how "ISRO" has done it.
The great scientists from "ISRO" have tested the equipment to the core and they have divided them into 3 main components.
and they are more important discussion's than 3 components, Chandrayaan-2 has significant cost cut-down.
They have made it, below 1000 crore budget, 603 Crore for space segment and 375 crore for launch segment, they have made it at the figure of 978 crore.
Why are we sending space craft to Moon..?
The closest cosmic body within the reach of human is here, and the invention's made to reach there and the discoveries on the Moon can be clearly recorded and attempted and clearly formatted for the document to use as a research reference for the future scientists of our country.
Clear and much more understanding of space & advanced innovation's in our space craft's.
what will be the objective's of the Chandrayaan-2 ..?
As Moon provides the best linkage to Earth’s early history, It offers an undisturbed historical record of the inner Solar system environment.
Though there are a few mature models, the origin of Moon still needs further explanations.
The most intense information is that mapping of lunar surface to study variations in lunar surface composition is essential to trace back the origin and evolution of the Moon.
Though Evidence for water molecules discovered by Chandrayaan-1,
These requires further studies on the extent of water molecule distribution on the surface, below the surface and in the tenuous lunar exosphere to address the origin of water on Moon.
The lunar South Pole is especially interesting because of the lunar surface area here that remains in shadow is much larger than that at the North Pole. There is a possibility of the presence of water in permanently shadowed areas around it.
In addition to that, The Southern Pole region has craters that are cold traps and contain a fossil record of the early Solar System.
Chandrayaan-2 goal is that it 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.
What makes Chandrayaan-2 outstanding from the other satellites..? or form other Space craft's launched to Moon.
The first space craft which are enhanced enough to soft land on Moon surface.
First Indian Home grown technology to soft land on Moon.
First Indian mission to discover the lunar terrain
4th position among the world to soft land the mission.
What will be the expected timeline to reach moon..?
launch practices and load check
b/w this timeline u will see how our spacecraft will inserted into lunar path
will be the landing date
after the launch we can see clear view of time line of Chandrayaan-2.
The three most important component's are involved in Chandrayaan-2
1.Orbiter 2.Lander(vikram) 3.Rover (pragyan).
This will attach within the orbit with the time width and will settle on Moon at September 6th, will be capable of communicating with Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN).
The life span of Orbiter is one year.
it weighs about 2.3 metric ton and 1000W is much needed for the survival.
this lander is named after Dr.Vikram Sarabhai the father of Indian space programme.
this might survive about 1 lunar day which is equal to 14 days on earth so this the mission which also capable to connect with (IDSN)
which weighs about 1.4 ton and needed 670W.
Rover is a 6-wheeled robotic vehicle named Pragyan, which translates to 'wisdom' in Sanskrit. It can travel up to 500 m & 1/2 km and leverages solar energy for its functioning.
It can only communicate with the Lander.
it weighs around 27 KG and requires 50W power to run.
