India Wants to be the First to Land on the Unknown Territory of the Moon

The Indian Space Agency wants to put its vehicle on the South Pole of the Moon, an area of ​​the Earth’s natural satellite where no one has yet visited. The launch is scheduled for July. 
“All [ISRO] missions, no matter what we’ve had so far, have all landed near the equator of the moon. It is a place where no one has gone, “Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) head Kailasavadivoo Sivan told Hinduism.

Astronomie – Clair de lune

Chandrayaan-2, India’s second lunar exploration mission, seeks to gain access to “new science” and information, the president said. For example, one of the objectives of the probe is to find water on the moon.


The US Space Agency has announced that the three mission modules, Orbiter, Lander (Vikram) and Rover (Pragyan), will take off on board the GSLV-MkIII rocket between 9 and 16 July, with a planned landing of the moon on September 6th. The launch was originally planned last year, but several tests have been delayed several times.

India is not the only country trying to reach the unidentified South Pole of the Moon. China has recently announced plans to build a lunar research station in the same region. However, this will not happen in the near future, as the Beijing mission is to be launched in about 10 years, according to Xinhua.

“What they [China] are going to do, we do not know. The main reason [for which India goes there] is that no one has gone [to] that side so far, “Sivan said.
