Celebrating 49 years of @isro, in this special take on #SpaceInAMinute, we take a look at what the future holds for our nation's space program.
Riding on the success of major past orbiter missions like #Chandrayaan, @MarsOrbiter and #AstroSat, @isro is gearing towards new technologies and exciting future missions. Let's take a look!
First up is Chandrayaan-2. Launching early next year, the mission consists of a lunar orbiter, a soft-landing close to the south pole, and a six-wheeled rover. If successful, India will establish itself as Earth's 4th nation to achieve a soft-landing on the #Moon.
