Chandrayaan-2 Path to The Moon

Chandrayaan-2 Path to The Moon

ISRO is all set to lunch Chandrayaan-2, the journey to the moon. The lunar rocket Chandrayaan-2 is booked for lift off on 15 July from the Satish Dhawan Space Center at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

The declaration by ISRO comes right around 11 years after the primary lunar mission on 18 September 2008.

Chandrayaan-2 will have three modules, Orbiter, Lander (Vikram), and Rover (Pragyan). These are intended to do different trials, including mapping of the surface, minerals, substance piece, discovery inadequate water atoms over the lunar surface and rock developments.

Here are some facts and numbers to this memorable event which is going to be placed tommorow.

Specification of Chandrayaan 2

  • Lunch mass : 3,877 kg

  • Lunch Date : 15 July, 2019

  • Rocket : GSLV MK III

  • Lunch Site : Satish Dhawan Space Centre

  • Orbital Insertion : 6 Spet. 2019


The spacecraft, with an expected load of 3.8 tons, will endeavor a delicate arriving on the moon, adding to the unpredictability of the mission. In the event that effective, India will join the US, the previous Soviet Union, and China—the main three different countries to have accomplished the accomplishment up until now.

  • 2:51 am 15th July, 2019 : – Lunch
  • After Leaving Earths Geo-transfer Orbit, GSLV MK III put craft in earths elliptical orbit and afterwards it will be steered by thrust firing.
  • Taking around 25 day in travel, finally reached in moon’s orbit which is around 3,84,500 km away from the earths orbit.
  • Once reached to the moon’s orbit, Vikram (Lander) will be separated from orbiter.
  • after detached from the orbiter, Vikram will travel moons orbit and take a path to the moon’s surface.
  • On 6th Sept. Vikram does the soft landing on Lunar surface at south pole which is never explored by any space organization (including NASA).

Chandrayaan-2 will be lunched taking 14 payloads (Instrument/Satellite) in which 13 are ISRO make & 1 is NASA make.

The whole lifecycle of the Lander and Rover will be one lunar day, which is equal to 14 earth days while the Orbiter will proceed for one year.

The Orbiter and Lander will almost certainly speak with Earth straightforwardly, while the Rover will share data, pictures and information to the Lander which thusly will impart it to Isro.


  • Once land, Rover will share Images & data to the earth via orbit in 15 min.
  • Main objective of this mission is to find the possibility to setting up the human reach in moon’s surface.
  • Also, rover’s data will help to identify water, Hydroxyl & other minerals on Lunar surface.

The mission was supported by more than 500 academic institutions and 120 industries that contributed 60% of the ₹603 crore cost of Chandrayaan-2 and 80% of the ₹375 crore cost of the Geosynchronous Launch Vehicle-Mark III.

Isro chairman K. Sivan said at a news conference


  • India’s second lunar mission, Chandrayaan-2, will be steered by two women, Vanitha & Ritu Karidhal.
  • It is the first time for a planetary mission where women are in charge. We have had women project directors for the launch of communication and other satellites,

Sivan said.
