Give it to us too? NASA askes for Chandrayaan 3 sensors

nasa-

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: India's Chandrayaan technological prowess has wowed the American space agency NASA, which landed a man on the moon half a century ago.

The NASA team asked the ISRO scientists to provide them with the sophisticated system developed at such a low cost. NASA has asked for important sensors on Chandrayaan 3. The NASA team had reached ISRO during the construction phase of Chandrayaan 3. The team consisted of experts from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which builds rockets for NASA and performs complex missions. They were amazed to see the sophisticated lunar mission technologies developed by India at low cost. ISRO scientists also said that the team asked if these techniques could be shared with them.

The Lander Horizontal Velocity Camera, which helped Chandrayaan 3's Vikram Lander land safely at the Moon's South Pole, was the main instrument that surprised NASA. It was developed by India on its own without anyone's help. It is a sensor that checks the space just 20 seconds before landing on the moon and ensures that it is safe. No one in the world has a similar device. Chandrayaan also had sensors to monitor the environment, atmosphere, pressure and temperature. NASA is interested in it because it is very useful for human space missions. Dr KV Sriram, Director of ISRO's Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory, which developed the sensors, said that they are interested in further collaboration in this area.
