On Thursday, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said it had released the first set of data for the general public on the moon, Chandra-2, from the country’s second mission. Chandrayaan 2 was launched on July 22, 2019 from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. The orbit, which was launched into lunar orbit on September 2, 2019, conducts eight experiments to solve many open questions of lunar science.
“All the experiments are performing well and the data received indicate an excellent ability to overcome pre-launch commitments,” ISRO said. Accordingly, in the post-launch period, payload teams set up onboard systems to configure more equipment, including flight calibration data, modified / updated data processing steps / software retrieval. Do and start publishing preliminary results.
ISRO added that the first set of data for all users was being released on Thursday.
It added that the public release data stored at the Indian Space Science Data Center at Bellevue, near Bangalore, was generally compiled in the form of the Globe Global Planet Data System 4 (PDS4) for release. ۔
The Indian Space Science Data Center (ISSDC) is the nodal center for planetary data archives for ISRO planetary missions. Chandrain 2’s data must be of Planetary Data System 4 (PDS4) standard, and require scientific and technically peer review before being accepted as a PDS archive Has been declared ready. “People,” he said
This activity has been completed and therefore the first set of data obtained from the Chandrayaan 2 mission for wider public use is now being released through the Prison Portal under the ISSDC.
The ISRO Science Data Archive (ISDA) currently has data sets obtained by Chandraine 2 Payloads from seven devices from September 2017 to February 2020.
Imaging infrared spectrometer (IIRS) payload data will be included soon, he added, adding that the release sets Laylant-0 and Level-1 basic data sets which Planet Data System (PDS) version 4 standard is used. The Chandraine to Mission was India’s first attempt to land on the lunar surface.
ISRO planned to land at the South Pole of the lunar surface. However, in September last year, Lander Vikram had a difficult landing. Its orbit, which is still in lunar orbit, has a mission life of seven years. ISRO Chairman K Seon had recently said that work was underway on a Chandrayaan 3 mission consisting of a lander and a rover.
“We have not yet scheduled (for the launch of Chandra-3),” he said.
