Chandrayaan 2 landing on south of moon explained!


Content Team

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has chosen the south of the moon as landing as the lunar area is larger than the north pole, and there could be a possibility of the presence of water in the permanent shadowed areas around it. The south pole region also has craters that are cold traps and contain a fossil record of the early solar system. The rover Pragyan based on the moon lander will analyse the lunar soil.
