The image was captured by the Imaging Infrared Spectrometer (IIRS) payload on-board the latest lunar exploration mission, ISRO said in a statement on its website.
The function of this rover will be to carry out scientific experiments on the surface of the Moon.
ISRO has kept the launch window for the mission onboard GSLV MK-III rocket from July 9 to July 16 with an expected Moon landing on September 6, Sivan told reporters here.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched the GSAT-31 from the spaceport in French Guiana today. Here are a few facts about the satellite
After launching the two satellites, the fourth stage of PSLV-C44 will be converted into a platform for experiments in space
"They may be small in size with different functions and so forth but one rocket can send up, I think it was 104 platforms," said Coats, who if confirmed would be in-charge of all major American intelligence agencies including the CIA.
A long-term thinking was needed for setting up a space station, he said, adding "the sooner the better." Kumar said ISRO was also mulling tying up with the industry to enhance the country's satellite launching capability.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) set a new record yesterday when it successfully launched a PSLV-C37 rocket carrier with 104 satellites on board a single rocket from Sriharikota.
"This is perhaps the first widely followed world record India has made in the field of space technology. The Indians have reason to be proud," state-run Global Times said in its editorial today.
Latha Venkatesh of CNBC-TV18 caught up with Amitabha Ghosh, a space scientist who worked closely on NASA's Mars Rover mission.
Wednesday marked the first time in history that any space agency launched more than 100 satellites at a time. Out of the 104 satellites, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched with PSLV-C37, 101 were from other countries.
"India has led the world in space and scientific achievements and this momentous feat by our scientists has once again made the entire nation proud," she said.
As the scientists at the Mission Control centre broke into cheers, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman A S Kiran Kumar announced: "All 104 satellites successfully placed in orbit. My hearty congratulations to the entire ISRO team for the wonderful job they have done."
"The duration of the eclipse was so long that had we done nothing, the Mangalyaan's battery capacity would have got exhausted due to lack of sun rays. No effect of the eclipse was felt on Mangalyaan yesterday.
Companies like Alpha Design Technologies, Newtech Solutions, Aidin Technologies, Avantel Systems, DCX Cables, VINAYAS Technologies are part of the consortium taking care of the project.
A Bangalore-based startup founded by half a dozen professionals with no background in aerospace are aiming to build and land a probe on moon. Moneycontrol recounts the journey of Team Indus which is backed by investors such as Ratan Tata and Nandan Nilekani.
TeamIndus is the only Indian team competing for the Google Lunar XPRIZE that requires privately funded teams to land their spacecraft on the surface of the moon, travel 500 metres and broadcast high definition video, images and data back to earth.
"INSAT-3DR is scheduled for September 8 and by end of September we will have ScatSat along with an Algerian satellite as its co-passenger," ISRO chairman A S Kiran Kumar told reporters here on the sidelines of Bangalore Space Expo-2016 (BSX-2016).
The MoU with the Hyderabad-headquartered National Remote Sensing Centre of ISRO was inked in the presence of Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao and ISRO chairman A S Kiran Kumar.
ISRO's commercial arm Antrix had cancelled a deal involving use of two satellites and a spectrum after which Devas Multimedia filed the case against the former.
Kumar, who was here to participate in the MIT Alumni Golden Jubilee Celebrations, said the scientists were gearing up for the launch the GSLV-MarkII (Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle) carrying weather satellite in August.
The Union Cabinet on June 22 commended the Indian Space Research Organisation for simultaneous launch of 20 satellites
This satellite is similar to the earlier Cartosat-2, 2A and 2B. The images sent by Cartosat satellite will be useful for cartographic, urban, rural, coastal land use, water distribution and other applications.
Congratulating the Indian Space Research Organisation, the President observed that the successful launch of navigation satellite IRNSS-1G demonstrates India's growing capabilities in space launch technology.
"The countdown (T-48) is going on smoothly since it was started on Monday at 09:30 AM. The launch authorisation board will take the final call on early morning tomorrow for the final countdown (T-10)," Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) satellite director M Annadurai said.
