Besides this, chemical and mineralogical mapping of the entire lunar surface will be undertaken.
Some of the chemical elements to be mapped are Magnesium, Aluminum, Silicon, Calcium, Iron, Titanium, Radon, Uranium, & Thorium.
The unexplored territory gives an opportunity for the Mission to discover something new.
The South Pole of the Moon holds possibility of presence of water.
at a latitude of about 70° south on 6 September 2019.
The wheeled Pragyan rover would've moved on the lunar surface and would've performed on-site chemical analysis for 14 days (one lunar day).
The Polar Regions especially will be studied closely to see if they contain ice. They include not only the designing, development, launching and orbiting a spacecraft around the Moon using an Indian-made launch vehicle but also conducting scientific experiments using instruments on-board the spacecraft.
The lunar mission carries five ISRO payloads and six payloads from other international space agencies including NASA, ESA, and the Bulgarian Aerospace Agency. It is intended to prepare a three-dimensional atlas of both the near and far side of the Moon.
The mission promises to be a major boost to India’s space program.
India will be competing with Asian nations like China and Japan in exploring the Moon.
