Bengaluru, Jun 12 (UNI) India’s third Inter-planetary Mission Chandrayan-II which will be launched on July 15 at 0251 hrs from Sriharikota launch pad, was aimed to unravel the mystery of the origin of the Moon, which remains unresolved, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISR0) sources said.
Stating that the large variations in Lunar surface composition need extensive mapping, essential to trace back the origin and evolution of the moon, the ISRO said that the Chandrayan-2 has several scientific payloads in its orbitor, Lander and Rover to expand the Lunar scientific knowledge.
The Chandrayan-2 will helps to study on these aspects through a detailed study of Lunar topography, seismography, mineral identification and distribution, surface chemical composition, thermo physical characteristics of top soil and composition of the tenuous Lunar atmosphere.
