ISRO’s #Chandrayaan1 Reveals Rusting of #Moon; Scientists Point at #Earth's Atmosphere as Possible Cause

weather.com/en-IN/india/sp…

(📸: Shuai Li)
Data from the #ISRO has revealed that the Earth’s natural satellite Moon might be rusting. The new research suggests that the moon is turning slightly red, indicating the formation of a reddish-black mineral form of iron named hematite on its surface, particularly at the poles.
The formation of rust or iron oxide can be attributed to the presence of two key elements—water and oxygen—when they come in contact with iron.

#Chandrayaan2 | @isro’s Chandrayaan 2 identifies craters that may have water after mapping 4 million square kilometres of the Moon in its first year

businessinsider.in/science/space/…

By @pabsgill Image
🛰️It’s been a year since #Chandrayaan2 has been in orbit around the Moon.

In that time, the eight instruments it has onboard have been scouting the lunar surface for craters that could hold water and landing sites for future missions.
🛰️#Chandrayaan2’s Terrain Mapping Camera took photos of nearly 4 million square kilometres of the Moon’s surface.

The Terrain Mapping Camera - 2 (TMC -2) completed 220 orbits of the Moon and took images of nearly 4 million square kilometres of its surface. Image

#OnThisDay in 1919 was born Vikram Sarabhai, the father of India's space programme. But Sarabhai was much more than just a scientist, living an extraordinarily full life. Read on to learn more about him! #VikramSarabhai #ISRO #India #history #funwithfundas (1/23)
According to a popular (unconfirmed) story, Rabindranath Tagore, a part-time phrenologist, seeing the baby Sarabhai's large and unusually shaped forehead, pronounced that "this boy will achieve great things". #tagore (2/23)
For those wondering, phrenology is a pseudoscientific study of the shape and bumps on the skull to predict a person's character and traits. It was very popular in the 19th century. (3/23)

#Watch | A Year Since #Chandrayaan2 Launch, India Prepares to Touch the Moon with #Chandrayaan3 weather.com/en-IN/india/sc…

@isro #ISRO
July 22, 2020 marks the one-year anniversary of the launch of #Chandrayaan2, India’s second lunar exploration mission developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
Initially scheduled to launch on July 14, 2019, this mega-mission launch was aborted and rescheduled with just an hour to go due to a technical glitch.

#ISRO’s remote sensing centre is located a stone throw away frm a Chinese company in Kolkatta.
This company in the past has indulged in fraudulent practises in many countries.
Bringing this👇 to notice of @isro @HMOIndia @rajnathsingh @PMOIndia

2/2 Wonder if Leftist governments in WB were sleeping when Dongfang made its way close to ISRO? Btwn 2008-2012 Dongfang supplied 2 faulty turbines to power plant projects in 2 diff states, yet it ws not banned by UPA. It’s not too late, we can still take action aganist co.
Is this a coincidence that a guest house is also located very close to ISRO? U can check the compound, it has empty space everywhere, bt the guesthouse was built right next to ISRO. Pls don’t tell me this is a COINCIDENCE. 🙏

(1/7) A @ncaor_goa study: Glacier research is so treacherous at the “3rd Pole-the largest mass of ice & glaciers outside the #polar region”. Scientists in the Indian Himalayas [6Kft -17Kft] live on low oxygen, zip lines & paths blocked by giant boulder. bit.ly/3dfgsGC Image
(2/7)
1/3 of the glaciers of the Hindu Kush #Himalayas [2175 mile long] are in danger. “We haven’t even scratched the surface in understanding how fast the glaciers are melting & what happens next” says Sharma, a glaciologist with @ncaor_goa bit.ly/3dfgsGC Image
(3/7)
The mass balance of six glaciers of the many in the Hindu Kush #Himalayas range has alarmingly squeezed in the last decade to 86.9 sq. miles in 2019 from 115.8 sq. miles in 2009 & there are thousands like these.

Many have asked about the status of re-establishing contact with #VikramLander. I see #NASA DSN continues to send signals toward the moon aimed at Vikram, with DSN54 presently active. No reports of signals heard professionally or by amateurs.
The next major event is unfolding now as @LRO_NASA's orbital plane is arriving over the #VikramLander site. As the lander was only suppose to survive the first lunar day the chances of recovering the mission, assuming it is intact and comms are reestablished, are dwindling fast.
Given the lack of communications, the results of the @LRO_NASA data could verify the condition of the lander and perhaps provide valuable data to #ISRO for the next landing attempt.

So tomorrow #NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter circling Moon since 2009 is scheduled to fly over #Chandrayaan2 #Vikram lander's site. Interestingly #LRO was close enough during Vikram's landing to gather data about maneuver using its Lyman-Alpha Mapping Project instrument.
"As a matter of fact during descent of #Chandrayaan2, the
Lyman-Alpha Mapping Project #LAMP instrument was observing the changes in the exosphere of #Moon as a result of the rocket effluence coming down"

- Jay Jenkins, Office of Exploration at NASA's Science Mission Directorate
#ISRO lost contact with #Chandrayaan2's #Vikram during final stages of its descent. An unexplained wobble may have caused Vikram to go off course, data suggests. Descent was to last around 15 minutes. But around 11 minutes after Vikram began its decent, things went haywire.

No status change in #Chandrayaan2 mission in last 24 hours. No signals reported from the #VikramLander, orbit of #Chandrayaan2 remains stable. No new official reports from #ISRO, speculation in the Indian media as to the cause of the landing anomaly continues.
#NASA's #DSN appears to have stopped active transmission of commands to #VikramLander to stimulate a response. DSN NOW website appears to show stations tasked to #VikramLander but emissions have not been observed.
#Chandrayaan2 orbiter continues to emit strong S-band radio signals. I found an error in my earlier period timings for the orbiter and now my data nicely matches that of @df2mz. It’s safe to say rumours of the orbiter lowering its orbit are not true. ImageImage

Many new followers from India have asked many great questions about the #Chandrayaan2 orbiter and the fate of the #VikramLander. The following thread will provide some plain English answers about what I know about the present status of the mission.
#ISRO has not released any further official updates on the mission since Sept. 10th. Which indicated the orbiter had located the lander on the surface of the #Moon. Many rumours but there is no new official reports about #VikramLander or #Chandrayaan2 orbiter since this report.
No radio signals have been copied from #VirkamLander since the landing anomaly occurred.

As a science writer, I've not covered a govt more anti science than the current one. Nothing the PM does, incl an insincere photo-op hug, changes how badly his govt hurt scientific temperament in India. Some eg: 
#ISRO
His first move in 2014 was to merge HIV prog with the ministry & set up a separate ministry to promote Homeopathy, among other unscientific things.. and it now routinely peddles crappy treatment for everything from HIV to diabetes...
#MinimumGovernance

health.economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/industry/…
Or this "dangerously misguided" policy to patent cow urine. (You cant want scientific prog & cow urine for cancer..is all I'm saying.)

India's #VikramLander failure is being debated here depending on which angle one is taking: consider.

#ProudOfISRO ISRO can take risks, learn from failures and script success stories. Great institution. Our risk-averse corporate sectors who invest in bonds instead of capex need to learn from ISRO.
"India had to develop the lander indigenously after Russia, which was to build the lander under the original plan, backed out. Given the mass of the lander, the propulsion system on-board was required to produce thrust of around 3.2 to 4 Kilonewton. ++
++To make such an engine, ISRO would have had to go back to the drawing board — a move that could have delayed the mission.
ISRO decided to use the existing technology instead."

How the shameless #DMK Govt shunted away #ISRO Launchpad from #Kanniyakumari to #Sriharikota? Shocked to know? But going by DMK's track-record this is nothing. So it was clear to ISRO that to launch polar satellites launchpad has to be located on the Eastern Coast. Hence they (1)
selected Kanniyakumari TN. #VikramSarabhai takes an appointment to meet then TN CM DMK's #Annadurai, Annadurai suffers backpain & hence asks DMK Minister Mathiyalagan to meet #Sarabhai. Mathiyalagan comes fully drunk to meet who? Father of Indian Space Program #VikramSarabhai (2)
& talks rubbish + makes unreasonable demands(u know what?) to #Sarabhai. Frustrated #VikramSarabhai leaves TN in agonly & ISRO ticks off #Sriharikota for #Kanniyakumari This shocking treachery of DMK is revealed in Scientist #NambiNarayanan's recent book.

Neeraj Verma & Rashmi travelled all the way to from #Nagpur to #Sriharikota to witness the historic #Chandrayaan2 take off. I asked them what do they do for a living? Their answer amazed me, We are science activists (vigyaanan sevak) said the couple. Like how? #IndiaMoonMission
The couple travelled more than 1100 KM's to reach #Sriharikota from their village near #Nagpur border to be a part of @isro #Chandrayan2 launch

The couple travelled for more than 20 hours & reached #Sriharikota on 15th July, but the launch was called off in the last minute
They went back to their village & by the time they reached home the next launch date was announced

The couple left home again and travelled all the way back to #Sriharikota just to be there to witness the historic #MoonMission2 launch

Those who are saying WHY #PMMODI IS TAKING THE CREDIT? Let me give a point by point rebuttal. #MissionShakti #ASAT #DRDO #ISRO

1. ISRO never got attention by UPA Govt. But the Modi Government granted 50% more budget in ISRO Budget just in first 2 months

ndtv.com/india-news/at-…
2. It never stopped at that phase. Modi Government kept increasing the budget every year.

Currently the Budget of ISRO = 11,538.26 crores INR for the financial year 2019-20
3. During UPA time ISRO's budget hardly increased. From around 4000 Cr in 2009 to 5500 Cr in 2014.

2012-13, a sum of Rs. 5,615 crore had been allocated
