The next week is going to be very special for the Indian science world. Actually, India’s important space mission Chandrayaan-3 is about to land on the moon. It is being told that Chandrayaan will land on the lunar land between August 21-23 and will include its golden name in the pages of history.
This is the only important mission for India, but do you know that there are situations like ‘traffic jam’ due to this type of mission.
What has happened is that the way India has sent its mission, similarly many countries have sent it and there are many missions of other countries in the moon’s orbit, which are going to land on the moon soon.
In such a situation, we know that apart from Chandrayaan, how many missions are there in the line, which are going to land on the moon soon. After this, you will be able to understand how the space is crowded now and how is the atmosphere of the space?
According to a report of India Today, there are currently 6 active missions in the moon’s orbit and many other projects on the line.
Talking about the missions other than Chandrayaan, NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is currently in the Moon’s orbit, two more missions under NASA’s ARTEMIS, Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter (Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter) and Includes NASA keystone are there.
Apart from Chandrayaan, these missions are currently in the orbit of the moon.
Let us tell you that NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter was launched in 2009 and through that an attempt is being made to map the lunar surface. Apart from this, P1 and P2 missions of ARTEMIS are in Lunar Orbit from June 2022. Along with this, NASA’s capstone is in NRH orbit.
With this, now Russia’s Luna 25 mission has been launched soon, which can enter the lunar orbit on 16 August. Through this, the south pole of the moon will be explored and it will also land on the moon shortly after Chandrayaan.
With the increasing number of Moon missions, the Moon is becoming the center of scientific exploration. However, challenges like avoiding mutual conflicts with more missions are also increasing.
