|Vikram lander landing on moon|
- It is an Indian lunar mission that will strongly go where no nation has ever gone previously the Moons south polar area.
- Through this exertion, the point is to improve our comprehension of the Moon revelations that will profit India and humankind in general.
- These bits of knowledge and encounters go for a change in outlook in how lunar campaigns are drawn nearer for a considerable length of time to come pushing further voyages into the most distant outskirts.
Why it is going to the Moon?
- The Moon is the nearest vast body at which space revelation can be endeavored and reported.
- It is likewise a promising proving ground to exhibit advancements required for profound space missions.
- Chandrayaan 2 endeavors to encourage another period of disclosure, increment our comprehension of room, animate the progression of innovation, advance worldwide coalitions, and motivate a future age of adventurers and researchers.

The scientific objectives of Chandrayaan 2
- The Moon gives us the best linkage to Earths early history and an undisturbed record of the beginning Solar System condition.
- While a couple of develop models do exist, the Moon's starting point still needs further clarifications.
- Broad mapping of the lunar surface will help us in considering varieties in its arrangement a basic snippet of data in following the Moon's inception and development.
- Proof of water particles found by Chandrayaan 1 and the degree of its circulation on the lunar surface and sub-surface likewise require further investigations.
Why the lunar South Pole?
- The lunar South Pole is particularly fascinating in light of the fact that a bigger area of its surface remains in the shadow than the North Pole.
- There is a possibility of the nearness of water in for all time shadowed territories around it.
- Furthermore, the south polar locale has holes that are cold snares, containing a fossilized record of the early Solar System.
|Chandrayaan 2 moon landing mission|
- Chandrayaan 2 will utilize the Vikram lander and Pragyan rover to endeavor a delicate arriving in a high plain between two cavities Manzinus C and Simpelius N at a scope of about 70° south.
|GSLV Mk-III Vehicle|
- The GSLV Mk-III will convey Chandrayaan 2 to its assigned circle.
- This three-arrange vehicle is India's most dominant launcher to date, and is equipped for propelling 4-ton class of satellites to the Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO).
- The Lander of Chandrayaan 2 is named Vikram after Dr Vikram A Sarabhai, the Father of the Indian Space Program.
- It is intended to work for one lunar day, which is proportional to around 14 Earth days.
- Vikram has the ability to speak with IDSN at Byalalu close Bangalore, just as with the Orbiter and Rover.
- The Lander is intended to execute a delicate arriving on the lunar surface.
Weight of Orbiter :- 2,379 kg
Electricity Generation Capability :- 1,000
- At the time of launch, the Chandrayaan 2Orbiter will be capable of communicating with Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN) at Byalalu as well as the Vikram Lander.
- The mission life of the Orbiter is one year and it will be placed in a 100X100 km lunar polar orbit.
Weight of the Rover (Pragyan):- 27 kg
Electricity Generation Capability:- 50 W
- The Lander of Chandrayaan 2 is named Vikram after Dr Vikram A Sarabhai, the Father of the Indian Space Programme.
- It is designed to function for one lunar day, which is equivalent to about 14 Earth days.
- Vikram has the capability to communicate with IDSN at Byalalu near Bangalore, as well as with the Orbiter and Rover.
- The Lander is designed to execute a soft landing on the lunar surface.
