Have A Look At The Images Taken by Chandrayaan 2's Orbiter High-Resolution Camera
New Delhi: ISRO released shared pictures of the Moon's surface taken by a high-resolution camera onboard Chandrayaan-2. ISRO said the Orbiter High-Resolution Camera gives very high spatial resolution images of the Moon.
Chandrayaan-2's high-resolution camera onboard took a picture of a part of the Boguslawsky crater, located on the Moon's south pole. The camera also took close up images of the lunar surface in which several small craters and boulders are clearly seen.
ISRO said that "With a spatial resolution of 25 cm from a 100km orbit and a swath of 3km, the Orbiter High-resolution camera provides the sharpest images ever from a lunar orbiter platform. OHRC is an important new tool for lunar topographic studies of select regions."
On Thursday ISRO said that Chandrayaan-2's Orbiter payload CLASS, in its first few days of observation, detected charged particles and their intensity variations on the lunar soil.
With its ambitious Chandrayaan-2 mission, India hopes to uncover mysteries of the Moon's less explored south pole.
Lunar lander Vikram, one of three components of the Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft, had been scheduled to soft-land on the Moon last month but stopped transmitting 2.1 km from the surface.
NASA has said that Chandrayaan-2 captured images of the lunar region where lander Vikram made an unsuccessful attempt to soft-land. The US space agency said that the images were captured by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft during its flyby on September 17.
