After the 'Hard Landing' of Chandrayaan-2 on the lunar surface in September last year, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) planned another mission for the final months of this year.
However, the corona virus epidemic and lockdown affected many of ISRO's projects and delayed missions such as Chandrayaan-3.
A statement issued to Singh said that as far as Chandrayaan-3 is concerned, it is likely to be launched sometime in early 2021. Chandrayaan-3 will be a re-mission of Chandrayaan-2 and will have a lander and a rover like Chandrayaan-2.
Chandrayaan-2 was launched on 22 July last year. It was planned to land on the south pole of the moon. But the lander Vikram made a hard landing on September 7 and India's dream of touching the surface of the Earth's satellite was broken in his first attempt.
The arbiter sent under the expedition is doing a good job and sending information. Chandrayaan-1 was launched in 2008.
Jitendra Singh said that the first lunar mission of ISRO has sent some pictures which show that the poles of the moon look like rust.
The statement said that scientists of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) say that it is possible that the Earth's own atmosphere is helping it, in other words it means that the Earth's atmosphere also protects the Moon. You are doing
Thus, data from Chandrayaan-1 indicates that there is water on the lunar pole, which scientists are trying to find out.
Meanwhile, preparations are continuing for India's first mission to send manned into space. The minister said that there were some hurdles from Kovid-19 in preparation for Gaganyaan, but efforts are on to meet the deadline around 2022.
