Lunar orbit: Once Chandrayaan-1 is in its final circular polar orbit at a km altitude, a MIP (Moon Impact Probe) of 25 kg mass will be released and descend to. Chandrayaan-1 is an Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) orbiter designed to test India’s technological capabilities and return scientific information . “We have been able to detect NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter [LRO] and the Indian Space Research Organization’s Chandrayaan

Notably, Chandrayaan-1’s data helped determine the presence of water ice on the moonwhich NASA announced in September The instrument is a pushbroom imaging spectrometer providing two spatial and one spectral dimension use of a HgCdTe detector array.

Blue represents the ice locations, plotted over an image of the lunar surface, where the gray scale corresponds to surface temperature darker representing colder areas and lighter shades indicating warmer zones. Since the M 3 instrument observations yield very high data rates, mapping the entire surface of the moon chandrayyan both high spatial and spectral resolution would exceed the nominal operational lifetime of the mission.


Retrieved 8 August Missions are ordered by launch date. Retrieved 11 November After scientific analyses of the received data from the MIP, the Indian Space Research Organisation confirmed the presence of water in the lunar soil and published the finding in a press conference addressed by its then Chairman G.

This light is led through an optical fiber to the instrument’s sensor head where it hits a grating.

Dresden, Germany, May The results obtained by the mission established i A tenuous but active hydrosphere ii Volcanically active and geologically dynamic Moon and iii Global melting of Moon’s surface regions and formation of magma ocean early in the history of Moon. The agency’s Moon Mineralogy Mapper detected evidence of a hydrogen-oxygen chemical bond hinting at water or hydroxyl when looking at the top area of the moon’s chanerayan soil.

October Learn how and when to remove this template message. It is expected that in the next few months, interesting results about lunar topography, cahndrayan and chemical contents of the Moon and related aspects are expected to be published. Chandrayaan-1 proved the perfect target for demonstrating the capability of this technique. List of Solar System probes List of lunar probes List of space telescopes.

The mass of the HEX device is about 16 kg, a power consumption of 24 Chandtayan, and a size of mm x mm x mm. Specific radar cross section. We welcome suggested improvements to any of our articles.

The Mini-SAR instrument features a new hybrid-polarity architecture, a dual-polarized system with a linearly-polarized antenna – leading to a simpler yet more capable radar. The discovery of Mg spinel anorthosites and finding of kilometer sized crystalline anorthosite exposures by M 3 support the formation of global magma ocean on Moon and differentiation early chandrayxn its evolutionary history.
