    Joint India Japan moon robotic missions

    "Japan, India discussing unmanned moon mission"

    Japan's top government spokesperson says the country's space agency and its Indian counterpart have begun discussing a joint mission to land a probe on the moon.

    Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Tuesday the Japan Space Exploration Agency, or JAXA, and the Indian Space Research Organisation are in cooperative talks.

    He said the move is in line with the government's decision in June to begin studying a plan to send a lunar probe to the south pole.

    In 2017, the two organizations agreed to work together to send an unmanned probe to the moon sometime in the first half of the 2020s.

    "Indian, Japanese space agencies to launch joint lunar mission study in 2023"

    http://www.moondaily.com/reports/Ind..._2023_999.html

    The failure of its recent Chandrayaan-2 lunar mission notwithstanding, a resilient India is set to make another bid to explore the far side of moon. The Indian space agency ISRO will make another attempt in collaboration with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) in the early 2020s.

    The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) in partnership with India, has aimed to launch the feasibility study of their first-ever joint lunar mission in 2023.

    The Japanese agency said the mission would last about six months and target a constantly sunlit region near the moon's South Pole.

    As per the agreement between the two countries, Japan would provide the rocket and rover, Ryo Hirasawa of JAXA said during a presentation at the International Astronautical Congress in Washington, while India would provide the lander.
