Tryst with Chandamama

With the successful entry of Chandrayaan-1 into Moon's orbit, India's space exploration has entered a new phase. Narendra Bhandari's book The Mysterious Moon and India's Chandrayaan Mission brings out the motivation behind the venture and explains its scientific aspects.

IN recent years, there has been a growing interest in using the Moon as a test bed for equipment and operations required for other planetary missions and a gateway for exploration of other solar system bodies. USA has outlined long term plans of having permanent human presence on the Moon and a Moon-Mars route for exploration of Mars. This will require exploration and utilisation of resources available on the Moon essential for establishing a lunar base.
