ISRO’s roadmap for 2019
After Chandrayaan 2, ISRO’s Human Space Flight Centre will be gearing up for its astronaut training efforts for its first-ever manned mission named Gaganyaan.
What’s ISRO working on next?
There are a string of interesting projects on ISRO’s to-do list in the near-future. Chandrayaan-2 and the Gaganyaan manned mission are two of the better-known big missions. The agency is also working on a total of seven interplanetary missions over the coming decade. Here are ISRO’S Interplanetary Missions in the near future.
What’s the mission timeline of Chandrayaan-2?
Chandrayaan-2 is the first space mission to conduct a soft landing on the Moon’s South Polar region
Why is Chandrayaan-2 mission headed to the Moon’s South Pole?
With the Chandrayaan-2 mission, ISRO is aiming to take India & the global scientific community where no human or mission has been before – the Moon’s South Pole. There’s more than one reason for this strategic choice.
Chandrayaan-2’s journey to the Moon’s South Pole is unique in more ways that one
Dr. D.B. Pathak, Principal KV IISC, discusses Chandrayaan 2’s voyage to the Moon’s south polar region and the uniqueness of this journey. He encourages the youth to dream big and extends his wishes to ISRO for pulling off this remarkable feat – https://t.co/G3ZX3tX7Tw pic.twitter.com/WAi7ym8ksY

Pragyan’s role in the mission will begin once Chandrayaan-2 lands on Moon’s surface
Once @ISRO‘s #Chandrayaan2 makes its planned Moon landing, a lunar rover Pragyan will gradually roll onto the lunar surface on its 6 wheels – each painted in the colours of the tiranga. Here’s what the rover is built to accomplish. #Chandrayaan2TheMoon https://t.co/LJll7CAoX9
