Chief of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) after the US space agency NASA’s (NASA) rover ‘Perseverance’ successfully landed on the surface of Mars in the early hours of Friday. Sivan (K Sivan) said late evening that India’s Mangalyaan-2 is likely to be an ‘orbiter’ for the ‘Red Planet’. ISRO chief did not specify any exact time frame for Mangalyaan-2. However, he said that the Indian Space Agency’s next mission to Mars will be sent after Chandrayaan-3.
Through Chandrayaan-3, ISRO aims to land a rover on the Earth’s satellite moon, but it has been delayed due to the implementation of the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic and is likely to be sent in 2022. Sivan said that landing on the surface of Mars is more difficult. Chandrayaan-3 will showcase ISRO’s ability to land a rover on another planet. ISRO has announced its next plan for its successful “Mars Orbiter Mission” (Mangalyaan) “Mars Orbiter Mission-2”. According to this, “Now his plan is to send an orbiter mission to Mars to find opportunities for future launches.”

K Sivan said that Mangalyaan-1 is “still working well” and sending data. He told that ISRO has asked the scientific community to give suggestions for possible experiments and it is in the process of obtaining them. Sivan said, “After receiving the suggestion, we will prepare a project report and discuss it in (an expert) committee.” Then we will go to the Space Commission. ”The Space Commission is the apex body to take policy decisions on space related activities. Asked whether Mangalyaan-2 would be a rover or an orbiter, Sivan said, “We are thinking about the orbiter mission right now.” He said, “Mangalyaan-2 will be the only orbiter mission.”

Mangalyaan-1 was sent on November 2013 and it entered the orbit of Mars in September 2014. It was designed to work for six months, but it is still serving the seventh year. Mangalyaan-1 orbiter has sent thousands of photographs. Other big projects of ISRO are also in the queue. After the success of Mangalyaan, ISRO has decided to send an expedition to the planet Venus as well. However, ISRO’s immediate priority is Chandrayaan-3 and Gaganyaan. Both of these projects have been delayed due to the lockdown implemented due to the coronavirus epidemic.
Under Chandrayaan-3, ISRO will once again launch a rover on the lunar surface. The campaign will be sent later this year.

Chandrayaan-2 did not meet India’s expectations. ISRO also plans to send three astronauts to space under Gaganyaan mission by 2022. The Indo-France joint vision for space cooperation also mentions possible cooperation for Mars. NASA has also entered into an agreement with ISRO for cooperation in the campaign on the Red Planet. However, Sivan said, “We have not received any letter from them yet.” We have written to all international space agencies and our scientific community in India.
