Many great things happen whenever some country achieve a great scientific thing. India has recently done that because on July 22 it has managed to send Chandrayaan successfully. Indiana Space Research Organization (ISRO) led this mission of sending moon lander, and they have succeeded at it. However, this journey was not a piece of cake for ISRO because they faced lots of struggle before achieving that goal. Chandrayaan 2 was launched at At 5.13am Eastern Time today, July 22 from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota.
While announcing the launch of moon lander on the lunar surface, Dr. Kailasavadivoo Sivan said that this is the Victor of science and technology in India. The whole of India was waiting for the launch of Chandrayaan 2 because the countdown started 20 hours before the actual launch. Chandrayaan 2 is going to be arrived on the Moon by the end of August because for some time it will loop around the earth. India has planned to send Chandrayaan 2 without crew, and it will be landing on the Moon’s south pole first.
This mission consists of an orbiter, a lander called Vikram, and a rover called Pragyan. There have been many experiments done by many countries for launching a moon lander, but very few succeeded at it. The USA, Russia, China, are the only three countries who were successful in sending a moon lander. India now has joined this list of countries, which is an excellent achievement for the country’s scientific field. Recently Iran also tried to Beresheet a moon lander which crashed onto the lunar surface. The official reports show that the launch of Chandrayaan 2 was supposed to happen on July 16, but it failed because of the leakage of fuel from the rocket. They fixed this issue immediately and later succeeded to send Chandrayaan 2. NASA congratulates ISRO for achieving the success and hoped to share vital information which will be found by them on the moon.
