The fourth country to fly on the moon
Chandrayaan 2 will be launched from Satish Dhawan Launch Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. With the success of the campaign, India will be the fourth country to land on the Moon. Earlier, US, China, and Russia have launched their boats. India had sent Chandrayaan-1 in 2008, which had experimented with circling the Moon for 10 months. The credit goes to this campaign for the discovery of water on the moon. ISRO chief Dr. Sivan said that all the processes of this mission are being run smoothly.
The height of the 15th floor is ‘Fat Boy’
The 640-ton GSLV Mark-III rocket has been named by the Telugu media as ‘Bahubali’, and ISRO has named it ‘Fat Boy’ (Fat Boy). This rocket built at a cost of 375 crores will cover 3.8 tonnes of Chandrayaan-2. The cost of the Chandrayaan-2 is 603 crores. Its height is 44 meters, which is equal to the 15-storey building. This rocket is capable of carrying a four tonne weighing satellite. There are three phase engineers in it. So far, ISRO has launched three rockets in this category. This rocket will be used in 2022 in India’s first human mission. Chandrayaan-2 is expected to land on the surface of the Moon on September 6 or 7th. After a 16-minute flight, the rocket will take the vehicle to the outer orbit of the earth. Then it will be delivered to the orbit of the moon.
Chandrayaan-2 is the first mission of collecting information about the area of the Moon’s South Pole region, which is still untouched. No country has campaigned until it will not land in the South Pole of the Moon. This campaign will be helpful in understanding this part and knowing about the development of the Moon. There are many big craters in the area, which are expected to get proof of the very early time of the solar system. ISRO President Siwan said that 30 percent of the women in the campaign have played the role. Project Director M. Vanitha and Mission Director Ritu Kairadal.
