    Default Chandrayaan 1

    Chandrayaan 1 will take off in less then 2 hours from now I am going to be glued to television and this is what didint let me sleep all night

    I am hoping that everything goes well and the vehicle goes into moons orbit and the impact on moon goes well.

    India will get a huge strategic gain from this mission and also economic benefits in future

    India will be the hub of commercial satellites in the next few years

    It wont be live on the net unfortunately but I am sure there are a lot of people all set to record the launch and post it on youtube My guess is that it would be available on Youtube within hours of the launch

    For those who dont know>> After this launch India will be one of the neuclear super powers capable of striking anywhere on Earth

    this is really a great achivement

    Its a successful lauch.THe rocket has placed the spacecraft in the orbit.It will take another 15 days to reach the moon's orbit.Chandrayaan-1, carried two instruments from the American space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration.India will be the fourth country after the US, Russia, and Japan to have its flag on the moon.

    Money spent here is peanuts considering how much money is lost to corruption and diverting money meant for government projects.

    Just consider this 883 Crores, the amount of money paid as bribes in 2007 by families below the poverty line. (from TII-CMS India Corruption Study 2007)

    Compared to that this mission only cost a measly 368 crores :w00t:

    yes i agree with this fact and i am sure this will give us a great chance to be on top. India is already leading in tech and other things lets rock moon and other planets too and apart from that this mission is not like other missions, it will provide us info for coming 2 years

    Chandrayaan looks at Earth

    Chandrayaan-1, India’s spacecraft to the moon, has beamed down beautiful picture of the Earth it took on October 29. The picture were taken by the Terrain Mapping Camera (TMC) on board the spacecraft after it was switched on. This photograph, sent by Chandrayaan-1 on Wednesday, shows Australia’s southern coast (indicated by an arrow on the globe at right). The picture was taken by the Terrain Mapping Camera aboard the spacecraft from a height of 70,000 km.

    Default Mission accomplished, Tricolour on moon

    Mission accomplished, Tricolour on moon

    The tricolour landed on the Moon at 8.31 pm on Friday, opening a new chapter in the history of India’s space exploration.The tricolour was painted on all sides of the 29 kg Moon Impact Probe (MIP) which was attached to the top portion of the main lunar orbiter, Chandrayaan. The MIP is the brainchild of former President A P J Abdul Kalam.The 35-kilo payload crash-landed on the lunar surface at around 2030 hrs IST. The MIP has started sending its first signals to the satellite.It also contains equipment which will help scientists design a lunar lander or rover for the upcoming Chandrayaan-2 mission.

    Great News.... :clap:

    The Moon Impact Probe (MIP) essentially consists of honeycomb structure, which houses all the subsystems and instruments. In addition to the instruments, the separation system, the de-boost spin and de-spin motors, it comprises of the avionics system and thermal control system. The avionics system supports the payloads and provides communication link between MIP and the main orbiter, from separation to impact and provides a database useful for future soft landing.
