Chandrayaan-2, India’s Moon mission, has been launched from Andhra Pradesh’s Sriharikota. GSLV Mk-III-M-1 is carrying three robotics to the Moon. But, this time two women scientists of ISRO were working behind the scene and made it possible for India. Not only that, 30 per cent of the members working on the Chandrayaan-2 mission are women, as mentioned by K Sivan, Chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation. This mission was leading by two women scientists of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). Muthayya Vanitha was leading the Chandryaan-2 and on the other hand Ritu Karidhal was working as Mission Director. It had never happened before when women power is heading this much of highly important ISRO mission.
