    Two Assam Born Scientists Part Of Historic Launch Of Chandrayaan-2

    Guwahati: The whole country wore a jubilant picture as the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) achieved a historic achievement for the successful launch of India’s heavy rocket carrying Chandrayaan-2 on July 22nd, 2019.

    Assam along with the rest of the country celebrated the launch as two scientists hailing from the state played a pivotal role in this mission to the moon in search of water, minerals measuring, moonquakes and so on.

    Dr Jitendra Nath Goswami was the principal scientist of the mission and he is also the chairman of the advisory board for Chandrayaan-2 mission. Meanwhile, Dipak Kumar Das is the director of Space Applications Centre (SAC), ISRO. The SAC played a key role in the successful launch of Chandrayaan-2.

    It may be mentioned here that the rocket nicknamed ‘Bahubali’ was launched at 2:43 pm on July 22nd, 2019, from the Sriharikota space station in Andhra Pradesh. It is hoped that the $150m mission will be the first to land on the Moon’s south pole.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ram Nath Kovind were among the first to congratulate the ISRO. Modi said that the mission is a matter of joy for every Indian as the Chandrayaan-2 is a fully indigenous mission.

    In a series of tweets, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal too sang praises for the successful launch of Chandrayan-2 and added that the achievement is a testament to India’s growing clout in space. He also hailed ‘Nari Shakti’.

    For the first time in India’s space history, such expedition is being led by two women – Muthaya Vanitha, the project director, and Ritu Karidhal, the mission director.

    Notably, the Chandrayaan-1 was launched in the year 2008 by ISRO and it was successful in tracing water molecules in the moon.
