About the Book

Sharing is caring!

With the launch of Chandrayaan-1 in October 2008, India ushered into a new era of Planetary Exploration. The larger amount of data provided by eleven instruments on-board Chandrayaan-1 have now been analyzed. Many new discoveries and findings have been reported using Chandrayaan-1 data from different instruments. The major findings include discovery of water/hydroxyl molecules in lunar poles, findings on new minerals, confirmation of lunar magma hypothesis, mineralogy and morphology of complex craters, detection of lunar domes, sinuous rilles, lobate scarps and detection of water ice in polar regions of the Moon. All these findings have ultimately lead to enhanced understanding of the evolution of the Moon and associated processes.
