Journey Of Chandrayan Presentation

Introduction to Chandrayaan- India's Lunar Mission.
• Chandrayaan is India's first lunar mission.
• Launched by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) in 2008.
• Aims to study the Moon's surface and its mineral composition.

Launch and Early Mission Phase.
• Chandrayaan was launched on October 22, 2008, from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, India.
• It entered a lunar transfer trajectory on November 8, 2008.
• The spacecraft successfully completed its lunar orbit insertion on November 8, 2008.

Payloads and Scientific Objectives.
• Chandrayaan carried 11 scientific payloads, including a lunar orbiter, impactor, and a moon rover.
• The primary scientific objectives were to create a 3D atlas of the Moon, study the mineralogy and water-ice presence, and map the lunar surface's topography.
• It also aimed to search for evidence of past or present lunar water and analyze the thin lunar atmosphere.

Moon Impact Probe and the Impact.
• Chandrayaan's Moon Impact Probe (MIP) was released and impacted the lunar surface on November 14, 2008.
• The MIP carried instruments to study the Moon's atmosphere during descent.
• It provided valuable data on the presence of water molecules and other constituents in the lunar exosphere.

Lunar Orbiter and Imaging.
• Chandrayaan's lunar orbiter carried high-resolution cameras and spectrometers to map the lunar surface.
• It captured detailed images of the Moon's surface, including craters, mountains, and other geological features.
• The orbiter also helped identify potential landing sites for future missions.

Discoveries and Findings.
• Chandrayaan confirmed the presence of water molecules on the Moon's surface.
• Identified key mineral compounds, including magnesium, aluminum, and silicon.
• Discovered the presence of high amounts of titanium and helium-3 in the Moon's soil.

Challenges and Setbacks.
• Chandrayaan faced communication issues with the Moon Impact Probe after the impact.
• The mission faced challenges in maintaining stable communication with the lunar orbiter.
• Despite setbacks, Chandrayaan continued to provide valuable scientific data.

Legacy and Future Missions.
• Chandrayaan laid the foundation for future lunar missions, including Chandrayaan-2.
• India aims to land a rover on the lunar surface with Chandrayaan-2.
• Chandrayaan's success inspired other countries to explore the Moon, leading to increased global interest in lunar exploration.

International Collaborations.
• Chandrayaan had collaborations with several international space agencies and organizations.
• NASA contributed one of the scientific payloads, the Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3).
• Chandrayaan's data has been shared with global scientific communities for further analysis.

• Chandrayaan has been a significant milestone in India's space exploration journey.
• The mission has contributed to our understanding of the Moon's geology, mineral composition, and potential for water resources.
• It has paved the way for future lunar missions and increased international collaboration in space exploration.
