The Indian Mission to the Universe


ISRO(Indian Space Research Organisation) successfully tested its GSLV Mk III cryogenic engine

The Indian Space Research Organisation (#ISRO )the GSLV Mk III launch vehicle�s indigenous cryogenic CE-20 engine at ISRO Propulsion Complex (IPRC)
in Mahendragiri, Tirunelveli district. Ready to Launch.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (#ISRO ) successfully conducted a test on Saturday Mar. 14 2015
to check the GSLV Mk III launch vehicle�s indigenous cryogenic CE-20 engine at ISRO Propulsion Complex (IPRC)
in Mahendragiri, Tirunelveli district. The test is just the latest step toward providing the ISRO with the
capability of sending astronauts to low-Earth orbit (LEO).

Valles Marineris stretches over 4,000 km (2,500 mi) across the Red Planet ,
is as much as 600 km wide and measures as much as 7 kilometers (4 mi) deep.

India on the Way to our Moon!!!!!!

Liftoff! India Launches Ambitious Mission to Land at the Moon's South Pole

India's Chandrayaan 2 Reveals Highest Resolution Images Of The Moon From Orbit

India's Chandrayaan 2 has been orbiting the moon for over a year but hasn't been sharing the data with the world until just before Christmas. I'd been hoping that the high resolution camera would let us see things on the moon in a detail we'd not seen before, but it appears that they've only shared 3 images and 2 of those are blurry. Still I hope this is a start and we'll be seeing more data in the future. Data is available from:



Chandrayaan 2 Mission Loses Contact With Vikram Lander During Descent

Chandrayaan 2 Vikram Landing Site

source: Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute The entire world is watching as the Indian space agency is about to attempt the first soft landing in the vicinity of the Moon's south pole. India's Chandrayaan 2 mission will deploy the Vikram lander to a location approximately 70 degrees south in lunar latitude. The planned landing site is a relatively smooth plane between the craters Manzinus C and Simpelius N. Once safely on the ground, the lander will deploy the Pragyan rover to explore this new and fascinating terrain. This visualization was generated using NASA's Moon Trek portal and data from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter's (LRO) Wide Angle Camera (WAC) and Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA).

India’s Crashed Lander is In This Picture, Somewhere

This image of the lunar highlands is from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. You’d need superhuman eyesight to spot it, but India’s crashed Vikram lander is in there somewhere. The lander attempted to land on the Moon on September 6th, but when it was only 2.1 km above the surface, within reach of its objective, ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) lost contact with the spacecraft.

India is Going to be Sending Three People to Space in Three Years(in 2022?)

One of the most notable features of the modern space age is the way that new participants are entering the fray. In addition to the traditional contenders – NASA and Roscosmos – China has become a major player in space in recent decades. And in 2022, according tor recent statements, India will join the club too when it becomes the fourth nation to send a crewed mission to space.
