India Plans to Launch Moon Mission in July

The upcoming moon mission is the most complex ISRO has attempted. Two Chandrayaan modules — an orbiter and a lander — will be stacked together inside a launch vehicle equipped to lift heavy satellites into orbit. A third module, the lunar rover, will roll out on landing and operate for at least 14 days on the surface. It will wander about 1,300 feet, surveying a surface that reaches minus 250 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 157 degrees Celsius) in the shadows.

India has earned a reputation as a frugal space explorer whose competitively priced commercial-rocket launch services are much sought after for satellites. The Chandrayaan-2 mission is estimated to cost about $87 million. NASA’s current budget is about $21.5 billion, while China’s annual space spending is about $8 billion.

Décollage de la deuxième mission lunaire indienne le 15 juillet

Cette nouvelle mission, qui s'envolera du pas de tir de Sriharikota (Andra Pradesh, sud), a pour but de déposer un robot mobile sur la surface lunaire, à proximité de son pôle sud. Une fois au sol, l'astromobile effectuera des relevés scientifiques. Si la mission se déroule conformément aux prévisions, l'Inde deviendrait la quatrième nation - après l'Union soviétique, les États-Unis et la Chine - à réussir à poser en douceur un appareil sur la Lune, située à quelque 384.000 kilomètres de la Terre.

L’Inde va lancer sa seconde mission lunaire


La mission lunaire indienne Chandrayaan-2 décollera le 15 juillet, en vue d’un atterrissage sur le satellite de la Terre le 6 septembre, a annoncé mercredi l’agence spatiale d’Inde.

India plans to have its own space station

India plans to have its own space station in the future and conduct separate missions to study Sun and Venus, it said on Thursday, as the nation moves to bolster its status as a leader in space technologies and inspire the young minds to take an interest in scientific fields.

India Planning To Launch Own Space Station By 2030, Says ISRO Chief K Sivan

In one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken by India, the country is planning to launch its own space station, Indian space agency ISRO chief K Sivan said today. India is targeting 2030 as the date to launch a 20 tonne space station, which will most likely be used to conduct microgravity experiments. The preliminary plan for the space station is to accommodate astronauts for upto 15-20 days in space, but specific details will emerge after the maiden manned mission, Gaganyaan, is complete. 

"We have to sustain the Gaganyaan programme after the launch of (the) human space mission. In this context, India is planning to have its own space station," Mr Sivan told reporters in New Delhi.

The government has already cleared a budget of Rs. 10,000 crore for the Gaganyaan mission. There would be two flights from Andhra Pradesh's Sriharikota without the crew before the maiden flight with crew sometime in 2022.
