Mumbai, October 22 (Xinhua) -- Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launched India's first lunar probe "Chandrayaan 1" with a polar satellite carrier rocket on October 22

according to the live broadcast of Indian television, at 6:22 local time (8:52 Beijing time), with the countdown of "3, 2, 1", the polar satellite carrier rocket ignited smoothly, and flew directly to the blue sky from the sathish davan Space Center on srihirigoda island in the billowing smoke. Applause broke out in the control hall

Tencent technology news at 8:52 Beijing time on the 22nd (6:22 Indian time), the Indian Space Research Organization launched India's first lunar probe "Chandrayaan-1" with a polar satellite carrier rocket. Chandrayaan-1 will carry out a two-year survey and analysis of the moon, taking the first step towards India's manned spacecraft lunar landing plan by 2020

"moon one" weighs 1.38 tons and costs about $83million. The probe will orbit the moon in the next two years, comprehensively and deeply explore the mineral, chemical and topographic features of the lunar surface, and draw a three-dimensional electronic map of the lunar surface

according to the plan, "Chandrayaan-1" will first be sent to the "transfer orbit" around the earth by rocket, and then start the engine to fly to the moon. After approaching the moon, Chandrayaan-1 will slow down in order to be captured by the lunar gravity. After that, "yuechuan-1" will enter the near circular orbit 1000 kilometers away from the lunar surface, and after confirming that everything is normal, reduce the height to the orbit 100 kilometers away from the lunar surface for the lunar experiment. The industry mainly produces the following eight categories of products: detection

officials of the Indian Space Research Organization said that during the lunar exploration, the "Chandrayaan-1" will also release an impactor weighing about 30 kg to hit the moon, and easily let you learn to use the wear resistance experimental machine to place this national flag on the moon to show India's presence on the moon. However, according to relevant experts, it is very difficult for the national flag to stay in the month

"moon ship-1" lunar exploration satellite carries a total of 11 scientific detection equipment, of which 5 are developed by India, and the other 6 are developed by other countries, including 2 instruments from NASA

German far-infrared spectrograph installed with Indian probe to help "moon ship-1"

Berlin, October 21 according to the German MAPP Association, The far-infrared spectrograph developed by Germany is installed on India's first unmanned lunar probe "lunar chuhang-1", which will be launched on the 22nd. This is a contribution of Germany to India's lunar exploration mission

the sir-2 far infrared spectrograph developed by the Max Planck Institute of solar system in Germany can carry out a wide range of geological exploration of the lunar surface. Both the moon and the earth were formed about 4.5 billion years ago. Understanding the formation process of the moon through lunar geological exploration will help to better understand the formation history of the earth. The previous lunar exploration launched internationally also made the sample skidders mostly limited to detecting a small part of the moon in the experimental process. With the help of this spectrograph from Germany, the lunar surface can be detected in a larger range

The working principle of sir-2 far infrared spectrograph is to use the different characteristics of spectral absorption of lunar surface substances. Each substance will absorb the spectra of different wavelengths and reflect the rest of the spectra into space. The spectrograph can distinguish the substances generated in different periods by analyzing the reflection spectrum. Sir-2 far infrared spectrograph is most suitable for the detection of this wavelength range. A similar spectrograph has been installed on the European lunar probe "SMART-1" in 2004. This is a new instrument improved on the original basis

in addition to installing German instruments, India has also obtained technology and instruments from several research institutions in Russia, the United States and the European Union. The successful launch of the lunar probe will enable India to become the fifth country to master the technology of lunar exploration after Russia, the United States, China and Japan.

"moon ship 1" is not purely domestic

according to Indian media reports, the "moon ship 1" lunar probe is characterized by lightness, with a launch weight of about 1.3 tons, which is lighter than the "goddess of the moon" lunar probe launched by Japan and the "Chang'e-1" lunar probe launched by China, and the fuel accounts for about half of the weight of the probe

Indian public opinion believes that the launch of "moon ship 1" is of great significance and will further enhance India's national strength. However, the shadow of the west can still be seen behind the launch. Among the 11 lunar exploration instruments it carried, three were provided by the European Space Agency, two by the United States, and one from Bulgaria

according to the information provided by the European Space Agency, the three lunar exploration instruments provided by the agency are cixs-2x ray spectrometer, Sara sub kilovolt atomic reflection analyzer and sir-2 near infrared spectrometer. ESA also provides hardware for the high-energy X-ray mapping camera on the detector. In addition, the two instruments provided by NASA are micro synthetic aperture radar for detecting polar ice deposits on the moon and mineral mapping instrument for detecting lunar resources.
