New Delhi: India has made great strides in the field of space exploration. Now India is preparing for a new experiment. After successfully launching satellites on the Moon and Mars, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is now preparing to launch a satellite on Venus. Which will be placed around the planet Venus. What is below the surface of the hottest planet? Is there any possibility of life or not? Besides, what is the secret of Venus’s mysterious sulfuric acid clouds? This satellite will find the answers to these questions. The mission is named Shukrayan by ISRO.
ISRO Chairman S. Somnath said after a one-day meeting on Venus that ISRO scientists have prepared a project report of the Venus mission. As well as cost preparation. The government and scientists agree on this project. Preparations are currently underway to build the satellite with the right equipment and launch it towards Venus. He further said that sending a mission to Venus is an easy task for India. Because according to the capabilities India has, India can send a mission to Venus in a short time.
“If you can’t launch in 2024, the next opportunity will come in 2031,” ISRO said
ISRO has fixed December 2024 for the launch of Venus. This time is set so that Venus is in a straight line with the planet and the earth, so that at least fuel is useful for it to reach Venus. If it is not launched in December 2024, then this opportunity will come again in 2031. ISRO chief Somnath said the mission sent to Venus would not be replicated like other countries and space agencies. India will experiment completely differently. As ISRO did in Chandrayaan-1 and Mangalyaan (Mars Orbiter Mission). With this, the flag of India will once again be hoisted globally.
So far 46 Venus missions have been launched
So far, only the US, Russia, the European Space Agency and Japan have launched Venus missions. A total of 46 Venus missions have been launched so far. Some of these spacecraft landed on Venus, some in its orbit. Such missions are divided into Flyby, Lander and Orbiter missions M3. Venus is an orbiter mission.
