Factbox: Upcoming And Previous Indian Space Missions After Chandrayaan-3

BENGALURU, Aug 31 (Reuters) – India is set to send off its next space adventure, a mission to concentrate on the sun and its impact on space climate, days after the verifiable arriving of its Chandrayaan-3 space make on the lunar south pole.

The following are highlights from past and upcoming missions carried out by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO):

The first Indian space mission to study the sun is the Aditya L1 mission, which is scheduled to launch on September 2. Aditya is the Hindi name for the sun. The spacecraft will be positioned approximately 1.5 million kilometers (930,000 miles) from Earth in an orbit around the Lagrange point 1 (L1) of the Sun-Earth system, where the gravitational pulls of the two bodies cancel each other out. That “parking garage” in space permits objects to wait due to adjusting gravitational powers, diminishing fuel utilization by the space apparatus.

The mission means to notice sun powered exercises and their impacts on space weather conditions progressively.

In 2019, the public authority endorsed what could be compared to about $46 million for the Aditya-L1 mission. ISRO has not given an authority update on costs.

India’s previously maintained space mission (“Gagan” signifies sky in Hindi, “yaan” is create) plans to send off a team of three to a circle of 400 km (250 miles) for a three-day mission prior to arriving in Indian waters.

ISRO has said its Vikram Sarabhai Space Center had effectively tried frameworks for balancing out the group module and securely diminishing its speed during reemergence.

Recently, the agent serve for science and innovation, Jitendra Singh, said around 90.23 billion rupees ($1.08 billion) had been dispensed for the Gaganyaan program. ISRO says it will zero in on accomplishing a supported human presence in space once Gaganyaan is finished.

No authority the opening shot date has been declared, however ISRO has said the mission will in all likelihood be prepared in 2024.


NASA-ISRO SAR (NISAR) is a low-Earth circle observatory framework together created by NASA and ISRO. NISAR will plan the whole planet once like clockwork, giving information to understanding changes in biological systems, ice mass, vegetation biomass, ocean level ascent, ground water and regular risks including seismic tremors, tidal waves, volcanoes and avalanches.

Generally the size of a SUV, the satellite is set to be sent off from India in the primary quarter of the following year, with an objective send off set for January.

X-RAY POLARIMETER SATELLITE (XPoSat) India is also developing its first polarimetry mission specifically for the purpose of investigating cosmic X-ray sources.

In-depth research into neutron stars and black hole sources will be made possible by the mission, which aims to open up new horizons in high-energy astrophysics.

ISRO has not set a day for kickoff for this mission yet.


  • Chandrayaan-3: India became the first nation to successfully land a spacecraft at the moon’s south pole on August 23. The mission is continuous, with ISRO saying its meanderer had affirmed the presence of sulfur, iron, oxygen and different components on the moon.
  • Chandrayaan-2 – In 2019, ISRO sent off its second moon mission, its most memorable endeavor to concentrate on the lunar south pole. The mission incorporated an orbiter, lander and wanderer, and was sent off in the midst of exclusive requirements. Despite the fact that it conveyed the orbiter effectively, the lander crashed.
  • Mars Orbiter Mission (Mother) – In 2013, ISRO turned into the fourth space office to place a rocket in the Mars circle. MOM did not lose contact with ground controllers until 2022, despite the fact that its expected mission duration was only six months.
  • India’s first mission to the Moon, Chandrayaan-1, was successfully launched in 2008. The satellite made in excess of 3,400 circles around the moon and affirmed the presence of water ice on the moon; the mission finished up when correspondence with the space apparatus was lost on Aug. 29, 2009.
