We proud ISRO: What is India’s Chandrayaan 2 mission, and what people are saying about it


An ISRO officer said on Saturday that Chandrayaan-2’s orbiter is safe in orbit after the lander ‘Vikram’ lost contact with the ground station a few minutes before touching the lunar surface. The Officer told PTI, “The orbiter is perfectly fine and safe in the orbit of the moon and is functioning normally.
An ISRO officer said on Saturday that Chandrayaan-2’s orbiter is safe in orbit after the lander ‘Vikram’ lost contact with the ground station a few minutes before touching the lunar surface. “The orbiter is perfectly fine and safe in the orbit of the moon and is functioning normally.” The life span of the 2379 kg orbiter mission is one year, the official told PTI. It is noteworthy that Chandrayaan-2 weighing 3,840 kg was launched on 22 July with GSLV Mk-3 M1 rocket. Chandrayaan-2 left the orbit of the earth and started its journey towards the moon on 14 August after ISRO carried out the process called ‘Trans Lunar Insertion’. This process was adopted to transport the spacecraft to the ‘Lunar Transfer Trajectory’. The spacecraft reached the lunar orbit on 20 August. Chandrayaan-2’s Orbiter has eight scientific instruments for mapping the surface of the Moon and studying the outer circle of Earth’s only satellite. ISRO was successful in separating the lander from the orbiter on September 2, but Vikram lost contact with the ground station in the early hours of Saturday. ISRO has said that it is analyzing the data.

June 12, ISRO Chairman K.K. Sivan announced that India’s second mission to go to the moon, Chandrayaan-2, will be launched on July 15.
29 June, after all tests, the rover was attached to the lander Vikram.
On 29 June, Lander Vikram was attached to the orbiter.
July 4, the work of connecting Chandrayaan-2 to the launch vehicle (GSLV Mk III-M1) was completed.
July 7, the GSLV Mk III-M1 was brought to the launch pad.
The countdown for the launch of GSLV Mk III-M1 / Chandrayaan-2 started 14 July on 15 July.
15 July, ISRO postponed the launch of Chandrayaan-2 just an hour ago due to technical flaws in the launch vehicle.
The time for the launch of Chandrayaan-2 on 18 July was fixed at 2.45 pm on 22 July from the second launch pad of Sriharikota.
The countdown for the launch of GSLV Mk III-M1 / Chandrayaan-2 started on 21 July.
On 22 July GSLV Mk III-M1 successfully launched Chandrayaan-2.On 24 July, Earth’s orbit for Chandrayaan-2 was successfully extended for the first time.
The Earth’s orbit was raised for the second time on 26 July.
Earth’s orbit was extended for the third time on 29 July.
On August 2, the Earth’s orbit was extended for the fourth time.
On 4 August, ISRO released the first set of pictures of Earth taken from Chandrayaan-2 satellite.
On August 6, the Earth’s orbit was raised for the fifth time.
On 14 August, Chandrayaan-2 successfully entered the ‘Lunar Transfer Trajectory’.On 20 August, Chandrayaan-2 successfully orbited the moon.
On August 22, ISRO released the first set of images of the moon taken from Chandrayaan-2’s LI4 camera at an altitude of about 2,650 km above the lunar surface.
On 21 August, the orbit of the moon was extended for the second time.
On August 26, ISRO released the second set of photographs of the lunar surface from Chandrayaan-2’s Terrain Mapping Camera-2.
The lunar orbit was extended for the third time on 28 August.
The lunar orbit was extended for the fourth time on 30 August.
On September 1, the lunar orbit was extended for the fifth and final time.
On 2 September, Lander Vikram successfully separated from the orbiter.September 3:
The first de-orbiting process is completed to bring Vikram closer to the Moon.
The second de-orbiting process was completed on 4 September.
On September 7, the process of bringing the lander ‘Vikram’ towards the lunar surface was observed to be normal and according to plan, up to an altitude of 2.1 kilometers, but the lander lost contact with the ground station.
PM Chandra Modi encouraged the ISRO scientists when the mission of Chandrayaan-2 remained incomplete. Also asked to stand firm. The PM says that if not this time or next time, it stays true, you keep encouraging.
This is also the speaking of all the leaders associated with the ruling party. Now the statements of opposition leaders of the country also come to know.
First let’s talk about Congress. Congress tweeted on its Twitter account-“Congratulations to the entire team of ISRO. Your efforts have created history and made the country proud. ‚ÄĚTheir leader Rahul Gandhi says that your work will not go in vain. This mission has laid the foundation for the upcoming space missions. Priyanka also praised the ISRO team and said that there are obstacles in the way. A victory is incomplete without them. After this, Arvind Kejriwal, who has always criticized the government, said that we are proud of scientists. He has created history. There is no need to dilute the heart. Overall, the leaders of the opposition also took the same approach as they should have adopted. Encouraging Scientists. Isro was not caught in the circle of criticizing the government. He looked united in this effort for the progress of the country.
