Isro is currently in discussion with the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency regarding the possibility of the former organization sending a lunar rover to investigate the dark side of the moon.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), which previously completed expeditions to the moon and Mars, is now focusing its attention on Venus and has plans to explore the dark side of the moon in conjunction with the Japanese government.
Following successful explorations of the Moon and Mars, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has turned its attention to the planet Venus as it continues its journey through space. ISRO and Japan’s Astronomical Society have worked together to investigate the moon’s far side.
According to a report from PTI, the Indian space agency has teamed up with the Japanese space agency to send a lunar rover to investigate a region of the Moon that is permanently shadowed. This is part of India’s effort to establish itself as a dominant player in the field of space exploration.
Anil Bhardwaj, Director of the Physical Research Laboratory in Ahmedabad, made a presentation on ISRO’s future missions at the Akash Tattva conference in Dehradun. He stated that ISRO was in talks with the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) about sending a lunar rover to explore the permanent shadow region of the Moon. Anil Bhardwaj’s presentation was on ISRO’s future missions.
He explained that ISRO’s lunar lander and rover will be transported to the moon’s south pole with the assistance of a Japanese rocket. After arriving there, the spacecraft will continue on to a region of the moon that is always in shadow and is never exposed to sunlight.
According to a report by PTI, ISRO’s mission to study the solar atmosphere, Aditya L-1, would be placed in an orbit around the Sun that would allow it to continuously view the star from a point called the Lagrange Point L-1. This point would be located at the center of the orbit.
In order to study coronal heating, solar wind and coronal mass ejection, flares, and near-Earth space weather, the orbit would be located 1.5 million kilometers away from Earth.
According to Bhardwaj, the Aditya L-1 and Chandrayaan-3 missions might launch the following year, and then they might be followed by missions to Venus and the moon.
