Gaganyaan to launch in December 2021, Chandrayaan 3 may launch in 2022 followed by Mangalyaan 2: ISRO chief
ISRO has other major projects lined up including its mission to Venus - Shukrayaan-1 and Aditya which is ISRO's mission to the Sun.
All four engines fired for barely a minute, rather than the intended eight minutes, on the test stand at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.
Less than a minute into a recent test, the SLS engine experienced a 'major component failure' – a considerable setback in the rocket's developmental timeline.
The upcoming Green Run hot fire test will be a key milestone event for NASA’s Artemis missions.
The Chandrayaan-2 mission was India''s first attempt to land on the lunar surface.
When the return capsule was about 10 kilometres above land, a parachute opened and it landed smoothly, after which a search team recovered it.
China's Chang'e 5 completes drilling into the moon almost two days after landing on the Ocean of Storms
The lander has begun drilling in the moon's surface using a robotic arm and will do so for two days to collect around two to four kgs of lunar samples to bring back.
The original mission, planned for 2017, was delayed due to an engine failure in the Long March 5 rocket.
Chang’e 5, scheduled to launch early next week, aims to put a lander on the moon to drill and scoop up rocks and debris to return to Earth.
Exposure to space radiation can cause lasting health effects – from cataracts to cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
The first step in the plan marks the unmanned mission, called Artemis I, on the Moon in 2021.
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.
The Artemis programme will explore as much of the moon's surface as possible and create sustainable missions to the Earth's satellite by 2028.
US President Donald Trump seeks to mine the moon, drafts international agreement called the Artemis Accords
The Accords are part of the Trump administration’s plan to forgo the treaty process at the UN and reach an agreement with “like-minded nations."
The three companies will develop, build and fly the landers and the contract for the initial 10-month period is $967 million.
17 April marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission that returned safely in spite of a catastrophic explosion in space.
The Artemis base camp will need infrastructure for power, waste disposal and communications, besides radiation shielding and a landing pad.
