  • ISRO has planned released Chandrayaan-2 data in public in October.
  • A data packet will be included inside from all eight orbiter’s instruments.
  • ISRO already uses the highest resolution 3D map of the moon.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has announced that will be publicly released Chandrayaan-2 data for global use. And this image included that behind creating the highest resolution 3-D map of the moon.

The orbiter has to eight payloads instrumental-Chandrayaan-2.when took off from earth Chandrayaan-2 lander. The orbiter has discoveries including the presence of water.

51st Lunar and Planetary science conference

ISRO’s plan to release the data was 51st Lunar and Planetary science conference in March 2020 it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

it released the draft of one of them that was instantly working. its the highest resolution 3 dimension mapping of the moon. the Chandrayaan 2 orbiter using mainly four instruments to capture the detail on the below lunar surface.

the 3D map presentation of the moon will help serve as a guide for future lunar missions. and even pointed out where large reserves of water and other elements are most likely to be hidden.

Instruments list of Chandrayaan-2 orbiter:

  • Terrain Mapping Camera 2
  • Chandrayaan 2 Large Area Soft Spectrometer
  • Solar X-ray Monitor
  • Orbiter High-Resolution Camera
  • Imaging IR Spectrometer
  • Chandrayaan 2 Atmospheric Compositional Explore 2
  • Dual Frequency Radio Science  

Next lunar mission for ISRO

ISRO is now preperation two important mission. Chandrayaan-3 and First manned mission The Gaganyaan.

Why Chandrayaan-2 is fail

An internal report of the space commission of India said the main reason for the failure of the Chandrayaan-2 mission last-minute software glitch. Vikram lander crash-landed the last minute of landing guidance.

ISRO designed Chandrayaan-2 soft landing probe testing face work correctly, but the Vikram Lander lost the connection near 500m lunar surface. the glitch was unexpected the software was function well through the trial period.

Why Chandrayaan-2 is special:

Chandrayaan-2 is ISRO’s second lunar expedition mission. It was launched from Satish Dhawan Space Centre on 22 July 2019 at 2.43 PM Indian Standard Time to the Moon by a Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III.

A successful landing would make India the fourth country to achieve a soft landing on the Moon, after the space agencies of the USSR, USA, and China.
