ISRO started work on Chandrayaan 3 to be launched by November 2020







Bengaluru: ISRO has started its work on Chandrayaan 3.

ISRO, the Indian Space Research Organization, said on Thursday

that India may attempt a ‘soft landing’ on the moon once again,

possibly in November next year. It is noteworthy that two months ago

on September 7, the country’s attempt to ‘soft landing’ of

Chandrayaan 2 on the moon failed.

ISRO had constituted a high-powered committee to prepare a report on

the proposed ‘Chandrayaan-3’ under the leadership of S Somnath,

director of the Vikram Sarabhai Space Center at Thiruvananthapuram,

which is responsible for all launch vehicle programs.

A senior ISRO official said, “The report of the committee is awaited.”

The committee has been given guidelines for mission preparation

before the end of next year. He said, November is a good launch time.

Space agency sources said, this time, more attention will be paid to the

rover, lander and landing missions and the flaws in Chandrayaan-2

will be rectified.

ISRO attempted a ‘soft landing’ in the South Pole region of the Moon

on September 7, but the lander ‘Vikram’ lost contact with the ground

station while landing on the moon. A national level committee of

scientists and ISRO experts led by V Narayanan, director of the Center

for Liquid Propulsion Systems of the Space Agency, has analyzed the

reasons for the breakdown of contact with the lander. The committee

consists of members of Vikram Sarabhai Space Center and UR Rao

Satellite Center.

An ISRO official said, “This committee has worked on the exact

reasons for what went wrong.”

ISRO scientists are engaged with vigor




They have prepared a detailed report and are believed to have been

submitted to the Space Commission. The official said, it is expected to

be made public after the permission of the Prime Minister’s Office.

However, if some other reports are to be believed, ISRO has already

started work on Chandrayaan 3 and it will be launched by November

2020. For this, ISRO has made a few committees which are working

on it.
