Chandrayaan 3: India all set to attempt landing on moon again
“Committees have been formed and senior scientists have been taken on board with a primary task of identifying the causes of failure and making required changes in the design of the lander"
There is a reason why so many Indians connect with ISRO and its missions. The national space agency gives wings to dreams of the odd 1.4 billion people. ISRO makes us believe that we are very much a part of the advancing world and not just another third world country. Over the years ISRO has become quite used to success. When Chandrayaan 2 failed to land in once piece on the lunar surface, one thing was clear, ISRO was not going to sit back and sulk.
ISRO plans to attempt a second landing as soon as in November 2020, dubbed as Chandrayaan 3. As per reports, ISRO is already holding several high level meetings regarding the same. It’s being said that ISRO chairman K Sivan is quite determined about the new project. Committees have been formed and senior scientists have been taken on board with a primary task of identifying the causes of failure and making required changes in the design of the lander. ISRO is working on designs to make the legs of the upcoming lander stronger than the one in Chandrayaan 2. A stronger foundation would help in case of another hard landing.
In ISRO, a lot of Indians see hope of competing with the world shoulder to shoulder. Achievements of ISRO can push India into technological revolution never seen before.
