"Chandrayaan-2 a highly complex mission which has achieved 90 to 95% of the mission objectives" says ISRO's latest update, as the world congratulates its achievements
Continuing with its high success rate in each of its missions, ISRO has recorded a whopping 90-95% success rate in each stage of the Chandrayaan-2 project. In the latest media update, ISRO has stated that Chandrayaan-2 was a highly complex mission, which represented a significant technological leap compared to the previous missions of ISRO. Given the complexity of the project and the fact that ISRO was attempting the same for the first time, the rate of success is unparalleled for any space organisation across the world.
Each phase of Chandrayaan-2 was watched by the entire world and ISRO has made the country proud today by achieving the targets is each phase, notwithstanding the loss of communication with the Vikram Lander. The present state of the project is no mean feat in terms of space science and this has been recognised by space scientists and technological experts from the world over since today morning.
Leaders across the world have congratulated ISRO for the project and the goals it has already achieved.
"This was a unique mission which aimed at studying not just one area of the Moon but all the areas combining the exosphere, the surface as well as the sub-surface of the moon in a single mission. The Orbiter has already been placed in its intended orbit around the Moon and shall enrich our understanding of the moon’s evolution and mapping of the minerals and water molecules in the Polar Regions, using its eight state-of-the-art scientific instruments.", says the latest update from ISRO.
State of the art Orbiter
The update from ISRO states that the Orbiter has already been placed in its intended orbit around the Moon and shall enrich our understanding of the moon’s evolution and mapping of the minerals and water molecules in the Polar Regions, using its 8 state-of-the-art scientific instruments.
The Orbiter camera is the highest resolution camera (0.3m) in any lunar mission so far and shall provide high resolution images which will be immensely useful to the global scientific community. The precise launch and mission management has ensured a long life of almost 7 years instead of the planned one year, states the update from ISRO.
