ISRO Getting Ready For Next Moon Mission

ISRO Getting Ready For Next Moon Mission

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman K Sivan has said that the space agency is getting ready for the next Moon mission in 2020. It's been two weeks that ISRO has lost contact with the lander 'Vikram' and efforts are being done to get in touch.

Speaking on it, Sivan said Chandrayaan 2 mission is 98 percent successful while the scientists are working round the clock to get back the lost contact. He added that a national-level committee comprising academicians and ISRO experts are analysing the cause of the communication loss. Sivan said he is thoroughly satisfied with Chandrayaan 2's progress and the orbiter can survive another seven and half years. With the help of orbiter, we are receiving the data and taking note of them is important.

On the future projects of ISRO, Siva said an unnamed mission is in the pipeline. Discussions for this project are already underway but needs lot of deliberations before approvals. ISRO has achieved some rare feats that no space agency has ever achieved. Hope it gets the desired results in its next mission.
