Indian Space Research Organization chief S Somanath said the country has the capability to visit the Moon, Mars and Venus, but the space sector needs more investment.
“India has the capability to go to the Moon, Mars and Venus but we need to increase our confidence. We need more investment and the space sector needs to develop and through that the whole nation should develop , this is our mission. We are ready to realize the vision given to us by Prime Minister Modi,” Somanath said, ANI reported.
After the success of Chandrayaan-3, ISRO will launch the Aditya-1 satellite to study the sun in the first week of September, Somanath said. “After launch, it will take 125 days from Earth to reach Lagrange point 1 (L1). We have to wait until then,” Somnath said.
India made history on Wednesday as ISRO’s ambitious lunar mission Chandrayaan-3 touched down on the lunar surface, making it only the fourth country to accomplish the feat and the first to reach the unexplored south pole of Earth’s only natural satellite. .
