Starting with Thumba, India’s space journey has now gone a long way, and we are counting in the top countries of the world.On October 22, 2008, Bharat successfully launched Chandrayaan-1 under the first moon mission. Ten years ago the first moon mission has been completed on October 22, 2018.
The international competition in the space sector will be switched on Monday, when Bharat will launch its low-cost mission and become the fourth country in the world, which has launched a search on the moon.
Only 50 days before the 50th anniversary of a human being to reach the moon, Chandrayaan 2 will fly from an island adjacent to Andhra Pradesh after preparations made up to the entire decade. This mission will also show how much space science has passed since Neil Armstrong has taken an important step towards human civilization through the Apollo 11 mission.
Bharat has spent Rs 960 crores in preparing ‘Chandrayaan 2’ for a trip of 3,84,400 kms (2,40,000 miles), and it flies from Satish Dhawan Space Center on Monday to the Moon’s South Pole on 6 or 7 Will land on September. Knowing the mysteries of the Moon, the only natural satellite in the Earth, has helped not only India but also the knowledge of the scientists of the world has expanded.
It is notable that in just eight months of launch Chandrayaan-1 had achieved all the goals and objectives of the mission. Even today, the study of data collected by this mission is being done by the scientists of the world.
Through this mission, Bharat credibility has increased in the world and the morale of the scientists too. The result of this is that the Indian Space Research Organization (IIS) has completed its preparations for the launch of ISRO Chandrayaan-2.
During the mission, study the elements present in the surface of the Moon to find out what its rock and clay are made of. Study of the structure of trenches and peaks present there. Study of the density of the Moon’s surface and the change in it.
The thermal properties near the poles, the study of the amount of electrons in the moon’s ionosphere. Watering on the surface of the Moon, finding 3D marks of the moon surface, besides finding the marks of hydroxyl.
The US has spent 25 billion US dollars on its 15 Apollo missions, which are about $ 100 billion in today’s values. Among these missions are six missions, through which Neil Armstrong and other astronauts have landed on the Moon.
China has spent US $ 8.4 billion on its Chengyang 4 ship to be sent to the Moon. Apart from these, spending more than $ 20 billion in terms of today’s values on the Moon-related campaigns run in the 1960s and 1970s.
Since the success of ISRO had been preparing for his own challenging space mission Chandrayaan-2. Under Chandrayaan-II, ISRO is sending orbiter, rover and lunar landers for the first time in the moon. This campaign will also encourage new experiments with the use and testing of new technologies.
After 40 days of launch, it will land on the moon. Under this mission, ISRO will first try to bring its vehicle to the south pole of the Moon. Earlier Chandrayaan was to be sent to space this year, but due to some changes in its design it is delayed.
There has been an increase of about 600 kilograms in the new design. Actually, during the experiments, it was discovered that the satellite will start moving when the part of the moon descends on the moon. For this, the need to improve the design and increase the weight felt.
