OVERVIEW


The successful launch of Chandrayaan-2 on board the GSLV Mark 3 and its insertion in the lunar orbit will be seen as a testament to India’s space programme. Though India’s first attempt to land on the Moon may have gone off-script, but the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter will remain in operation and continue to study the Moon from afar.

“UNIEXPLORE 2019 - The beauty of the unexplored,” is a two day seminar on Astrophysics, Astronomy and Cosmology, organized by the Department of Physics, Vivekananda College, Thakurpukur, to celebrate the giant leap that India has taken in space science.
