Chandrayaan 3 to launch in early 2021, will have a lander-rover duo says Union Minister Jitendra Singh
Chandrayaan-1, launched in 2008, has sent images which show that Earth's satellite may be rusting along the poles.
Chandrayaan 3: To test and prepare for successful landing, ISRO to recreate lunar craters in village near Bangalore
A source revealed that the artificial moon craters will be about 10 metres in diameter and will be three metres deep.
ISRO said that the Chandrayaan 2 orbiter has completed 17 orbit maintenance manoeuvres since achieving 100 km lunar orbit on 24th September 2019.
Within 300 kilometres east of the crater is the site where the Apollo 17 and Luna 21 missions had landed.
Chandrayaan-2 rover, lander may have partially survived landing, says engineer who discovered Vikram lander debris
Subramanian said he was seeking an explanation of how the rover may have moved, and for ISRO's validation of his findings.
Researchers from Jadavpur University work on simulation for ISRO to ensure soft landing for the lander on the moon, other planets
The project is part of ''Respond programme'' by ISRO with premier academic institutions related to space science, space technologies.
Chandrayaan 3 lander, rover and rocket will cost ISRO Rs 610 crores, of which Rs 360 crore is for the GSLV-MkIII.
Chandrayaan-3 will consist of lander and rover and will cost approximately Rs 250 crore.
Chandrayaan 3 to launch in 2030, will cost lesser than the second mission, Union Minister Jitendra Singh
He said that calling Chandrayaan 2 a disappointment was wrong since it was India's maiden attempt.
We saw the first black hole photo, many moon landings, the most distant asteroid ever imaged beyond Pluto among other spectacular wonders.
Chandrayaan 2: Failure is part of the 'big game', shouldn't discourage the science community, says NASA-JPL CTO
The NASA JPL Chief emphasised a familiar statistic quotes at the time of Vikram's planned landing — 40% of moons missions in last 60 years have failed.
ISRO never released images or other data to corroborate that it had located the Vikram lander.

What happened to Chandrayaan 2's Vikram lander, and four other things we learnt from the Lok Sabha Q&A with ISRO
Singh didn't divulge much specific information on the investigation into the lander's broken communication link or hard-landing.
He also said the launch, orbit critical manoeuvres, lander separation, de-boost and rough braking phase were a success.
The mission will feature an entirely new lander and rover, which ISRO engineers are already working on, but not an orbiter.
The Terrain Mapping Camera-2 onboard Chandrayaan 2 can create a digital elevation model of the lunar surface.
