India has successfully launched the second Chandrayaan-2 into space after failing for the first time. The ship was scheduled to depart for the South Pole one more week before the spacecraft, but was canceled at the last minute due to mechanical errors.
The country’s space research company (ISRO) is operating the expedition at a cost of about US $ 1 million. 0 per cent, compared to the US space agency NASA funds the Indian Space Research Organization in the third operation was successful , “ISRO” it will be a great milestone for.
According to the BBC, Chandrayaan-2 flew from the launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Research Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh, at around 12:00 pm local time on Monday.
The moon is expected to land at the south pole of Chandrayan-2. If it can land successfully, India will be the fourth on the list of lunar conquerors. Prior to that, only Russia (Soviet Russia), the United States and China won the moon.
Weighing 5 tonnes, a 6-storey orbiter (AGSLV MK Three Rocket) is taking Chandrajan-2 to the moon. Its lander was named ‘Vikram’ and Rover’s ‘Pragyan’.
India’s first spacecraft, Chandrayaan-1, orbiting the moon, received the hydroxyl ion’s position on Earth’s only natural satellite. The purpose of this second expedition is to learn about the minerals and elemental matter contained in the sandstone sandalwood.
In that part of the moon, the name of Chandrayaan-2 has not been mentioned in any country before.
Chandrajan-2’s orbiter, lander and rover are made in India’s own technology, so the cost of this spacecraft is relatively low.
Indian scientists have said that Chandrayaan-2 will have to cross 3.5 million kilometers to set foot on the moon. According to the calculations, about a month and a half after departure, the name of ‘Vikram’ was mentioned on the moon. Then it will come out of the lander, weighing 20 kilograms.
The distance from the orbiter to the lunar surface will be only 3 km when the lander comes down. After exploring the moon, the rover ‘wisdom’ will disappear there; However, his information will go to the Indian Space Center. The orbiter will still be in space; Along the orbit of the moon will send a series of pictures.
At the expense of this lunar eclipse in India, more money was spent on making the Hollywood blockbuster film ‘Avengers: End Game’.
Scenes of the launch of Chandrayaan-2 have been broadcast live on Indian television channels and ISRO’s social media accounts.
In a speech after the launch, ISRO chief K Shivan said, “This is the beginning of India’s historic expedition to the Moon.” In a tweet, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also praised the campaign.
