TECHNOLOGY | ISRO to launch 'Chandrayaan-3' Mission
Details: After an unsuccessful bid two months ago, India may attempt another soft landing on the Moon by next year-end, probably in November, ISRO sources said on Thursday.
The Indian Space Research Organisation had constituted a high-level committee, headed by S Somanath, Director of Thiruvanathapuram-based Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, the lead centre responsible for all launch vehicle programmes of ISRO, to prepare a report on the proposed Chandrayaan 3.
The Chandrayaan-3 mission will only comprise a lander and a rover given the orbiter is in a good condition. The overview committee met on Tuesday to review the configuration of the third moon mission. The meeting also took notice of recommendations of several sub-committees on propulsion, sensors, overall engineering, navigation and guidance.
