The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has released more pictures of lunar surface which were captured by India’s lunar craft Chandrayaan-2 last Friday. The Terrain Mapping Camera-2 on-board the orbiter of the lunar craft has captured the set of images from a distance of over 4,300 kilometres above the moon’s surface. They show several craters and the coldest region of the moon at her north pole.
Earlier, on the 22nd of this month, the camera onboard the lander of Chandrayaan-2 has sent an image of the moon. Chandrayaan-2 will explore a region of the moon where no mission has ever set foot. The spacecraft consists of an orbiter, a lander, and a rover together referred to as “composite body”.
The spacecraft will be the first Indian expedition to attempt a soft landing on the lunar surface. This mission will make India the fourth country after the US, Russia, and China to carry out a soft landing on the moon.
