Earlier, Indian Space Agency ISRO has released the first photographs of India’s Space Mission Chandrayaan-II. Hopefully, Chandrayaan-2 will land on the moon on September 06.

Latest Updates about Moon Mission:

Mission Moon: ‘Bahubali’ GSLV Mark-III rehearsal complete, ready for the launch of Chandrayaan-2.
Chandrayaan-2 will be launched from GSLV Mark-III Rocket on July 22 at 2:43 pm. Earlier it was to launch Chandrayaan-2 on July 15, but it was postponed due to a technical breakdown.
Chandrayaan-II mission of Indian Space Research Center (ISRO) will be launched today (July 22, 2019) from Satish Dhawan Center of Sriharikota at 2:30 pm.

Live telecast of the Chandrayaan-2 mission will also be shown on Doordarshan. This type of mission on Doordarshan is done with live telecast commentary.


  • ISRO’s eye after mission Chandrayaan-2 is on to reach Venus and Sun.
  • ISRO chairman told that Mission Venus will be completed by 2023.
  • ISRO chairman said that the purpose of space science is to bring positive change in life.

Joint information was given by the government and ISRO about the preparations of Chandrayaan-2 Mission. Regarding India’s ambitious space project, the Union Minister said that in the last few years, India has achieved many accomplishments in the field of space. ISRO Chairman told about future plans that Indian Space Science has set the goal to reach planets like Sun (Solar Mission), Venus (Aditya L1).

About Chandrayaan-2

ISRO is ready to go again on the moon surface after 11 years. The country second moon mission has no single foreign payload (part of the spacecraft) in Chandrayaan-2. This mission consists of 13 Indian payloads and an American space agency NASA’s apparatus. On the contrary, India’s first moon mission Chandrayaan-1 had included 3 Europe and 2 USA’s Payloads in its orbiter. With 3.8 tone weight, there are three modules of this space shuttle 1st Orbiter, 2nd Lander (Which called Vikram) and 3rd Rover (Which called Pragyan) and all modules are being prepared.

Rover and lander modules will be placed together as a consolidated module and will be adjusted in the GSLV Mark-III rocket launcher. The rover is located inside the lander. After the launching of GSLV Mark-III (Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III) in the Earth’s orbit, the orbiter, will reach at moon’s orbit by using Orbiter launcher

Thereafter, the lender will isolate from the orbiter chamber and will be landed on a predefined place adjacent to the South Pole of Moon. Later, the Rover will come out from Lander to complete scientific tests on the surface of the Moon. Instruments have also been set up for scientific testing on Landers and Orbiter chambers.

How to Work: Modus Operandi

Orbiter: ISRO’s mobile command center, in the 100th km orbit of the Moon

Chandrayaan-2‘s orbiter will move in 100th km orbit of the moon and send information to the ISRO after receiving it from the Lander. It will also receive the commends from ISRO and pass to the Lander. There are 8 payloads on it and it was made by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited and handed it to ISRO in 2015.

Lander (Vikram): After the refusal of Russia

The name of the Lander Vikram takes after ISRO’s founder and father of Indian Space Program Vikram Sarabhai. There are 4 payloads on it. It will do scientific work for 15 days. Its initial design was made by ISRO’s space application center Ahmedabad. But Later it was developed by the URSC (U R Rao Satellite Centre) of Bengaluru. it will work as a mediator between Rover or Orbiter. it will collect information from Rover and pass to the Orbiter and also receive commands from Orbiter and pass to the Rover.

Rover (Pragyan): The complete mission on the shoulder of this robot, data available in 15 minutes 

The Responsibility of the whole mission will be on this 27-kilogram robot. There will be 2 payloads on it. it will cover a distance of 400 meters approx on the surface of the moon. During this, it will do scientific experiments with the surface of the Moon and then send information to Lander, Lander sends it Orbiter and Than the Orbiter will send it to the ISRO Center. This whole process will take about 15 minutes. That is, the information sent by Pragyan will take 15 minutes to reach the earth.

ISRO chairman Dr. K. Sivan told that they are going to land Chandrayaan-2 at the place where no one had reached, on the south pole of the moon. This area has not been reconstructed so far. Chandrayaan-2 is an advanced version of the previous Chandrayaan-1 mission which was done about 10 years ago.

Its total cost is more than Rs 600 crores. 3.8-tonne weights Chandrayaan-2 will be sent in space through GSLV Mk-III.

India will leave its satellite impression on the moon This is a very important mission. ISRO believes that the mission will be successful.

These two women, who took charge of Chandrayaan-2

This Mission has also become special because it will be the first such interim mission whose command is in the hands of two women. Ritu Karighal is its mission director and M. Vanitha is project director.

About Mission Director Ritu Karighal

Ritu Karighal, Mission Director of Chandrayaan 2, is also called ‘Rocket Woman of India‘. He has also been a Deputy Operations Director in the Mars Orbiter Mission. Karighal has an engineering degree in Aerospace. He is a graduate from Lucknow University. In 2007, She has also got the ISRO Young Scientist Award our esteemed from former President APJ Abdul Kalam.

About Project Director M. Vanitha

Vanitha is working as a Project Director in Chandrayaan 2 Mission. Vanitha has a training of design engineering and has won the Best Women Scientist Award from Astronomical Society of India in 2006. She has also been working on satellite for many years.


Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is full of loudness in the preparation of its Chandrayaan-II mission. Continually informing about every development through social media. India is the first country in the world to send Lander and Rover to the southern pole of the Moon. ISRO compared this mission to the first human mission that went to the South Pole of the Earth.

ISRO has tweeted that two major events of human history are happening at the interval of 110 years. In 1909, the first man reached the Earth’s Southern Pole. This mission was named Nimrod Expedition. It was led by Ernst Shackleton. At the same time, ISRO is leading the Chandrayaan-II mission on the southern pole of the Moon.

According to ISRO, the GSLV Mark-III rocket used for the launch of small satellites has been used 13 times since April 2001. Of these, 3-GSAT-5P, GSAT-4, and INSAT-4C were in the failed launch while INSAT-3D, GSAT-6, INSAT-4CR and EDUSAT, GSAT-7 in addition to GSAT-7A, GSAT-7A, GSAT-6A and GSAT- 2, the launch of GSAT-3, GSAT-19 has been successful.
