Japan moon mission will take off 7th september JAXA will try to land 200kg SLIM Lander
This mission was to take place in the last week of August, but the weather did not cooperate. This will be Japan's first attempt to land on the lunar surface. However, in the month of May, a private Japanese company wanted to land a mission on the moon, which failed.
According to the report, the name of the Japanese spacecraft is SLIM, which in detail is called Smart Lander for Investigating Moon. It is much smaller than Chandrayaan-3. Of just 200 kg. Chandrayaan-3's Vikram lander was 1750 kg.
The objective of Japan's Moon mission is also to make a soft landing on the Moon's surface. JAXA has chosen a 100 meter site, where attempts will be made to land the 'slim' spacecraft. However, JAXA may take 4 to 6 months to land the mission. In comparison, Chandrayaan-3 had landed on the moon within 40 days of launch.
Japan wants to show the world that it is possible to land on the Moon wherever you want. The Japanese Space Agency calls it pinpoint landing. He believes that there may be many interesting places on the Moon. The current mission is being launched to ensure that future missions can be landed at such places and rovers can also walk there.
JAXA's XRISM telescope will also be launched on September 7. It will explore the universe like the Hubble and James Webb telescopes. The main purpose of the telescope is to study some of the hottest places in the universe.
