16 Kendriya Vidyalaya Students to Watch the Landing of Chandrayaan-2
06 September, 2019, 05:48
Participating at the centenary celebrations of Vikram Sarabhai, the father of the Indian space programme at a private college here on Thursday, the IPRC director said that the biggest challenge for the lander "Vikram" of Chandrayaan-II that is expected to begin its powered descent on the moon's surface at around 1.30 am on Saturday (September 7), would be to ensure that its orbit inclination should be 90 degree.
The orbit of Vikram Lander is 35-kilometre x 101 kilometre.
He said both Chandrayaan-2 and "Vikram" have been beaming data and images from different orbits and responding to signals from ISRO's ground stations.
A couple of hours after "Vikram's" touchdown, "Pragyan", the six-wheeled robotic rover, will roll out of the lander and probe the lunar soil for new chemicals, minerals, water, and study the phenomenon of seismic activity for one lunar day (14 days on terra firma).
If successful, Chandrayaan 2 will be the southernmost lunar landing ever on the moon's surface. The Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft continued to orbit the Moon at a perigee of 96 km and apogee of 125 km. Chandrayaan-2, however, will continue with its mission for one year.
Cameras, laser ranging systems, on board computers and, above all, software required for the entire operation has to work in unison, said Nair, who spearheaded the Chandrayaan-1 mission more than a decade ago. I don't think any nation has done a similar operation trying to have real time pictures and then try to have an on-board computer implement autonomously the function of the landing.
Online space quiz for the students of class 8 - 10 was conducted by ISRO in coordination with MyGov.in from August 10 to 25, 2019 to increase awareness about space programs.
