New Delhi: The sources in Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) have said that India may attempt another soft landing on the Moon in next November.
“The panel’s report is awaited. The committee has been given a guideline to prepare the mission before the end of next year,” a senior ISRO official told PTI.
“There is a good launch window in November”.
“Rover, lander and landing operations will get more focus this time and whatever deficiencies in the Chandrayaan-2 mission will be corrected,” sources in the Bengaluru-headquartered space agency said.
ISRO had attempted a soft landing of Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram on the lunar south pole on September 7 but unfortunately, just 2 kms away from landing, ISRO lost communication with the lander.
