Sriharikota Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launched Chandrayaan-2 successfully on Monday ISRO Chairman Siwan said on this occasion that in the next one to one and a half months, 15 major tests will be performed while passing Chandrayaan-II to the moon. After this, landing time will be the most challenging on the South Pole. In the last 15 minutes, we will be most afraid of getting a safe landing.
'Strengthened by enhancing the efficiency of Launch Vehicle'
Sivan said that the rocket has set the satellite in a class better than the fixed class. Whatever satellite team wanted to do on Tuesday, the launch vehicle did today. So now the test will be like a bonus for us. This will save the satellite too much fuel.
He said that the GSLV MK-III launch vehicle performance was also increased by 15% for the mission. This made it possible to carry up to four tons of payloads to Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit. Siwan also praised the ISRO team for removing the technical flaws of the mission.
Sivan said that on July 15 there was a serious problem in the launch vehicle. But we fixed it. Those who worked in 24 hours were mind-blowing. Identification of the vehicle's malfunction was corrected and brought to normalcy. In the next one and a half days, some required tests will be done. This will ensure that all the defects are cured and the mission is in the right direction. ISRO has returned to its color.
'My salute to the Expert team'
While praising ISRO's staff, Sivan said that engineers, technicians and support staff forgot their families and worked on removing the deficiencies of the mission. The Expert team was working for the last seven days so that each system works better. Saluting them is my responsibility.
