UP students to witness Chandrayaan-2 landing

ISRO gets a close shot at the moon

Chandrayaan-2 has captured some more images of the moon showing several craters, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said.

India has named Crater Mitra after Professor Kumar Mitra, an Indian physicist and Padma Bhushan recipient.

Two students from government schools in Uttar Pradesh will witness the historic landing of Chandrayaan-2 on the moon along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Isro control room in Bengaluru, early September. Chandrayaan-2, a three-module spaceship comprising an orbiter, lander, and rover, was launched on July 22.

AIR POLLUTION: EPA proposes scrapping Obama-era methane rules
It said the proposal would "rescind emissions limits for methane, from the production and processing segments of the industry". The Environmental Protection Agency will announce the proposal on Thursday morning, the source cited by Reuters said.

Previously, on August 4, ISRO shared the first pictures of Earth captured by the LI4 camera installed in Chandrayaan-2. Entering this circular orbit is the mission's final milestone before the Vikram lander separates from the orbiter to make its planned soft-landing on the moon's surface on 7 September. If India succeeds in this mission, it will become the fourth nation to set foot on the lunar surface after the US, USSR (now Russia), and China.

The first image shows a series of impact craters, including Jackson, which is about 44 miles in diameter and is located in the northern hemisphere of the moon's far side, Mitra, a odd feature at the western outer rim of the Mach crater, and Korolev, which is roughly 271 miles wide and contains many small craters. After this, the lunar lander will be removed from the vehicle and left towards the lunar surface. North east to this crater rests the Kirkwood crater named after the American astronomer Daniel Kirkwood, another well-formed impact crater which is approximately 68 kilometres diameter. Apart from the lunar craters, authorities name mountains after the famous people as a tribute for their contribution in their respective fields, while there are such dark places which are named after the mental states of the human.

ISRO Chairman, K Sivan had said that ISRO has the capabilities to accomplish this task in the given timeframe. ISRO is also planning to send astronauts into space in the context of the 75th Independence anniversary of India in the year 2022.
