The “Space” had finally come, where india is not just selfsufficient in carrying out all the space missions independently but also is being the Big Mommy for many powerful nations too in carrying their satellites to and fro from Moon and otherwise. But this news is special because there were only two entities that were the best when it comes to the Moon: One being william shakespeare and then NASA.

Earth will witness ISRO’s Lunarcraft Chandrayan2 leaving anywhere in the dates between July 9 to July 16, reaching the surface of the moon on 9th of September. It shall not only give us huge information from moon’s images but also using NASA’s laser reflector attached in the Lander ‘Vikram’ that will be used for calculating the distance from the surface of the Moon to the surface of the Earth.

ISRO took its own time before accepting the request put by NASA in last July to include them in this mission along with 13 Indian payloads. The results of these scientific experiments that will be conducted on the moon through these payloads will also open up many unexpected doors

These payloads are totally home-grown in Indian institutions including solar X-ray monitor, imaging IP spectrometer, Rover sensor complement and many more. ISRO’s Chairman K.Sivan said,” It is a passive experimental module onboard whose information will be utilized by the US Scientists for their own calculations.”
