Chandrayaan-4: ISRO To Bring Back Soil Samples From The Moon; Check Details Here!


As per ANI, “Chandrayaan-3 was a grand success. Now, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is focusing on their next project, Chandrayaan-4. This mission aims to bring back soil samples from the Moon. This will mark India as a frontrunner in space exploration.”

As outlined by Nilesf Desai, Director of the Space Applications Centre (SAC/ISRO), “In this mission, the landing will be similar like Chandrayaan-3 but the central module will come back after docking with the orbiting module which will later separate near to Earth atmosphere and re-entry module will come back with the sample of the soil and rock of the Moon. It’s a very ambitious mission hopefully in next five to seven years we will meet this challenge of bringing sample from the surface of the moon.”

“This mission is expected to be more complex than its predecessor. Where Chandrayaan-3 had a rover of 30kg, Chandrayaan-4 plans to land a massive 350kg rover. The challenge increases as the mission aims to preform a precise landing on the Moon’s rim, an area yet to be explored. The rover will have an exploration area of 1km x 1km, significantly larger than Chandrayaan-3’s 500meters x 500meters.”“Chandrayaan-4’s success depends on its ability to return lunar soil samples to Earth. This process involves the lander module docking with the orbiting module in space, followed by the return of the central module with the samples. This operation will include two launching vehicles, indicating the mission’s scale and complexity.”

“ISRO is also collaborating with the Japanese space agency JAXA on another lunar mission, LuPEX, which will explore the Moon’s darker side. This mission will witness a rover weighing up to 350kg exploring areas up to 90 degrees on the lunar surface.”
