After the failure of ISRO's Small Satellite Launch Vehicle, now good news has come about Chandrayaan-2. Chandrayaan-2 has found plasma density in the Moon's ionosphere. This big discovery may be because till now it was said that there is no gas around the moon. However, plasma density means that there are gas particles present.


Let us inform you that since reaching the orbit of the Moon in the year 2019, Chandrayaan-2 has been studying its surface. The spacecraft has given this information about the side of the Moon which was towards the Sun. However, no effect was seen on these neutral particles due to the Sun's radiation or the solar wind. Scientists say that despite this plasma is being generated.


The spacecraft is using dual-frequency radio science to study the Moon's ionosphere. It uses two coherent signals. The signals from the orbiter of Chandrayaan 2 are received at the ground station at Byalulu, Bangalore. Plasma density has been detected by the radio occultation method.


This information on plasma density has been published in the Monthly Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society Letters. It says, 'Whatever we got to see is very unique. An increase in its has been observed here after sunset. The ionosphere, which was earlier talked about in theory, is giving it strength. This could mean the Moon's atmosphere as well.


ISRO says that a large amount of electron content was also detected near the Moon's poles. According to scientists, these ions may be of gases like argon and neon, which last longer than particles of carbon dioxide and water.
