Chandrayan 3

Chandrayaan-3, India's mission to the moon, is likely to begin in early 2021, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said on Sunday. However, unlike Chandrayaan-2, it will not have an orbiter, but will include a lander and a rover.

Following Chandrayaan-2's hard landing in September last year, the space agency ISRO planned another mission for the moon later this year.

However, coronovirus epidemics and lockdowns have affected several ISRO projects and delayed missions such as Chandrayaan-3.

"For Chandrayaan-3, the launch may now take place somewhere in early 2021. Chandrayaan-3 will be a mission repeat of Chandrayaan-2 and will include a lander and rover similar to Chandrayaan-2, but will not have an orbiter, "Singh said in a statement.

Chandrayaan-2 was launched on July 22 last year, with plans to land on the moon's south pole. However, the lander Vikram landed hard on 7 September, crashing down to the lunar surface in his first attempt to successfully fulfill India's dream.

The mission revision is working fine and sending data.

The state minister for department of space Mr. Singh, said that Chandrayaan-1, ISRO's maiden mission to the Moon launched in 2008, has sent images which show that Earth's satellite may be rusting along the poles.

"The sign of this finding is that even though the Moon's surface is known to have iron-rich rocks, it is not known for the presence of oxygen amd water, which are the two elements needed to interact with iron to create rust," he said.

Scientists from NASA  say that this could be because the Earth's own atmosphere is lending a helping hand which, in other words, means that the Earth's atmosphere could be protecting the Moon as well, the statement said.

"Thus, the Chandrayaan-1 Moon data indicates/showing that the Moon's poles are home to water, this is what the scientists are trying to decipher," the statement added.

Meanwhile, preparations are on for India's first manned Space mission Gaganyaan. The training process and other procedures are also in place.

The minister said, "Obstacles due to the COVID epidemic caused some disruption to the Gaganyaan scheme but efforts are continuing to keep up with the times around 2022. ''
