About Chandrayaan-2-Complete Information and GK Questions

  • Chandrayaan-2 consists of a lunar orbiter, a lander, and a lunar rover named Pragyan, all developed in India The main scientific objective is to map the location and abundance of lunar water.

  • The lander and the rover will land near the lunar south pole region in a high plain between two craters, Manzinus C and Simpelius N, at a latitude of about 70° south on 7 September 2019. 

  • The wheeled Pragyan rover will move on the lunar surface and will perform on-site chemical analysis for a period of 14 days (one lunar day).

  • It can relay data to Earth through the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter and lander, which were launched together on the same rocket. The orbiter will perform its mission for one year in a circularized lunar polar orbit of 100 × 100 km.

  • Demonstrate the ability to soft-land on the lunar surface and operate a robotic rover on the surface. 
  • Scientific goals include studies of lunar topography, mineralogy, elemental abundance, the lunar exosphere, and signatures of hydroxyl and water ice.
  •  The orbiter will map the lunar surface and help to prepare 3D maps of it. The onboard radar will also map the surface while studying the water ice in the south polar region and thickness of the lunar regolith on the surface.
  • Chandrayaan-2 will inform the location and abundance of lunar water for exploitation by the future lunar base proposed by the Artemis program.
Chandrayaan-2 was 1st scheduled for 14 July 2019 at 21:21 UTC (15 July 2019 2:51 IST) but was called off due to a technical snag noticed while filling the cryogenic engine of the rocket with helium about one hour before launch. 

Chandrayaan-2 Launching Date:

  • The countdown was frozen at T minus 56 minutes, 24 seconds (56 minutes and 24 seconds to launch).

  • Chandrayaan-2 was launched on 22 July 2019 14:43 IST (09:13 UTC) from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota in Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh.
  • On 22 July 2019 at 09:13 UTC (14:43 IST) GSLV MK III M1 on its first operational flight successfully launched Chandrayaan-2
After Landing at Moon :

  • A successful landing would make India the fourth country to achieve a soft landing on the Moon, after the space agencies of the USSR, US and China If successful, Chandrayaan-2 will be the southernmost lunar landing, aiming to land at 67°S or 70°S latitude.
