Big thrill ahead : Mangalyan of ISRO


Mangalyan (Mission to Mars) of ISRO will reach to its destination on September 24, 2014. The scientists have big challenge of establishing this spacecraft into the orbit of Mars. If successful, India will be in the elite club of Mars mission.

Lunar Mission: Indian Space Research Organisation


Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is now planning to send its satellite to a solar mission. ISRO is instrumental to many successful launches of satellites from India. It has walked a long way since its first satellite Aryabhatt in 1975. The satellite was named after great ancient Indian astronomer and mathematician Aryabhatt. ISRO did not have capacity of launching a satellite at that period of time.

Aryabhatt was an Indian satellite launched through foreign assistance. Gradually ISRO has developed its own launching capacity. It is not only launching now its own satellites but also launching for other countries from its launching station Sri Harikota, Andhra Pradesh, India.

Once ISRO had entered into an agreement with Russia for getting supply of cryogenic engines, a must for launching. But denial from Russia in the pressure of USA put ISRO into great trouble. However, that could not discourage them. They developed the technique of their own and accomplish the mission. Advancement in modern physics helped them in doing so.

Chandrayan 1 ISRO - Indian moon mission Animation

Chandrayan-1

ISRO has successfully sent its lunar mission few days back. Chandrayan-1 (Chandra means the moon and yan is vehicle), the lunar satellite, is now in the orbit of the moon. It has started sending pictures of the moon that is to be used for scientific research all over the world. Chandrayan-1 has also put a capsule bearing Indian national flag along with scientific research instruments into the surface of the moon. It will take samples of minerals from there.

ISRO has also planned for launching a search engine "Bhuvan" with the help of Chandrayan-1. Bhuvan will be technologically able to compete with Google search engine according to sources.

This is a great success and help India to come as front runner in search engine business. We all know that Search engine business is Billions dollar business nowadays and likely to grow in future with the growth of internet globally.

Wish all success for ISRO !

Aditya: The solar mission


Encouraged by success of lunar mission ISRO scientists are now planning for a solar mission. No one in the world has yet send or even planned for a solar mission. Aditya (that means the sun in Sanskrit language) is planned for studying corona of the sun. It will move around the orbit of the sun and will send pictures of its corona. It will collect scientific data to be processed by the space researchers.

Study of corona is very important for the space researchers. It helps studying cosmic rays, solar turbulence, radiation of the sun etc.The scientists get opportunity of studying corona only at the time of solar eclipse. Therefore importance of the mission is enormous. Mr. Madhavan, director ISRO, and his team of scientists are determined for the success of the solar mission. This will put India into the forefront of space science and cosmology.

It is to be remembered that Indians have been doing extremely well in astronomy andastrology since ancient time. Actually astronomy was in a developed stage in India when only few western countries (Greece and Rome) could even think of it.

Mars Orbiter Mission - India - Artists concept

The Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), informally called Mangalyaan (Sanskrit: मङ्गलयान, English: Mars-craft) is a Mars orbiter that was successfully launched on 5th November 2013 by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). This is a less than perfect

Mars mission of India


ISRO has sent its rocket to Mars mission that has already completed 300 days of its journey. It will reach to the planet Mars soon. Only few countries in the world could yet send their rockets to Mars. India has been showing its strength in space research.

This Mars mission has significant for scientific research especially in the field of cosmology and particle physics. This mission will study Neutrino, an important sub-atomic particle with neutral charge. Neutrino is a very very tiny particle yet very important.

India and its space research organization has been playing vital role in space research and space technologies. India is also sending satellites in the space through multiple space launching vehicle in cheapest cost in the world.

Can Bhuvan become a challenge to Google?

Hi Suresh babu,

India is getting its ground. It was the world leader in astronomy since ancient period to 18th century.
