India’s moon mission Chandrayaan 1 on track

The Indian government has today informed the Lok Sabha today that the proposed moon mission of ISRO – the Chandrayaan -1 – is proceeding as per plan. International co-operation on the project too has been confirmed by the government. ‘Chandrayaan’ lieterally means ‘moon craft’.

Four instruments from Europe and two from the United States (which include the US MiniSar and the US payload, the moon mineralogy mapper), in addition to the main Indian scientific instruments, will be carried on India’s unmanned spacecraft Chandrayaan I, which is on course for its launch in 2007-2008.
