Hope you have read our last post on Chandrayaan-2 Expedition? Even if you have not, here are some highlights of what was it all about!
Having said that for all those who were excited to know what would be the result, here is our second article for all you readers what had happened to the 1,000 crores massive project.
Here we go;
Chandrayaan 2 was all set to take a giant leap of 50 days mission ISRO had planned to have a soft landing on the lunar surface that is a south pole of the moon, where no nation has ever been before.
The launch was scheduled to set its historical mission on July 15, 2019-entitled to be the most complex mission quoted by Mr. K Sivan, the ISRO chairman.
As when this 375 crore GSLV MK-III Holding a mass of 3.8 tonnes, along with three modules – Orbiter, Lander, and Rover (Pragyan). After 27 days being separated by the Lander named Vikram, the house Rover Pragyan was set to be above the Orbiter, and once the Lander is 30 km from the moon, this touchdown descent is what is considered to be the terrifying moment.
Everything went well, the launch was successful, and the whole nation was celebrating the pride ISRO scientists have given to our country. As the engraved Ashoka Chakra on one wheel of Rover and the ISRO logo on the other – Also the Lander having a small tricolor have definitely left its print on the lunar surface.
But the breathtaking moments after 50 days on September 7 were stalled to disappointment when during the final phase breaking the space scientists lost its contact with the Lander Vikram when it was within boundary of 1.3 miles of the lunar surface.
The Lander still remains tilted on the surface and everyone present at the Space Center are on their feet putting their efforts to restore the contact with the Rover.
The data is being analyzed, and as per the sources the Chairman has mentioned that the chandrayaan-2 is a pause and proceed moment for ISRO. Though it has been precisely located the health of Lander Vikram of Chandrayaan-2 is yet not entirely ascertained, and the mission of (ISRO) the Indian Space Research Organization is 90 percent successful.
There have been propositions about advancing the schedule of Chandrayaan-3, slated for 2024.
Chandrayaan-3 is an ISRO mission in collaboration with Japan’s Jaxa (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency).
The Debongo wishes all the Good Luck In advance for the Chandrayaan-3 mission.
Under Chandrayaan-3 mission, ISRO will position Jaxa lander and Rover to the south pole of the Moon for discovering and exploring the region further.
There is no doubt in it as both Chandrayaan-1 and Chandrayaan-2 were sent to the same South Pole region of the Moon. On the same, Chairman K Sivan boosted up the spirit of space researchers, scientists, and the whole nation aspirants by quoting that after Vikram “failure” future missions would not be affected. We will keep making new achievements and our nation proud.
Like any voyage to a world afar from Earth, Vikram’s flight was definitely a risky and tough endeavor, requiring the Lander to slow itself down to a nearer standstill, independently scanning for surface obstacles, and then take steps to escape them during touchdown.
And the majority of attempts to land robots on the moon have turned out to be a failure-either on the way to the surface or during launch. Because it is not tough business folk, it took sweat 12 years to the ISRO scientists to execute this mission.
Finally, what could be more inspiring and motivating to end this series of emotional and scientific expedition rather than mentioning the words of encouragement which our Honorable Indian prime minister Narendra Modi exclaimed in a statement on Twitter after K. Sivan’s update. “These are moments to be courageous and indomitable we will be!”
Further, he acclaimed,” India considers pride in having such a squad of proud scientists!
That have given their finest, and have always made India proud.
This mission has taught us never to be discouraged or leave hopes whatever hurdles we come across because good things take time and it’s not necessary we will always achieve victory, if success brings glory then failure also teaches us to rise again.
Thank you for all our readers who joined us in wishing our ISRO scientists best wishes, we need more of it and will always!
