Chandrayaan-2 is India’s second lunar exploration mission after Chandrayaan-1. While the lander and rover named Pragyan were lost just seconds before landing, the orbiter has been successfully placed in the orbit. The objective of the mission is to map the presence of lunar water.
Chandrayaan-2 orbiter will perform its mission for seven years with the hope that its mapping of lunar water will possibly give way to longer missions to the moon and eventually one day to establish a permanent base for mankind. It will also help enhance our understanding of our solar system and creation of the moon.
Just as Chandrayaan 2 is paving the way for the next generation of technology, MrOwl is also emerging as a leading platform for users to share knowledge and resources. MrOwl user, Divya Kapoor, manages a popularly viewed branch on Chandrayaan-2 (URL: https://www.mrowl.com/user/imadivya/chandravaan2/) that gives us tremendous insight on the groundbreaking mission.
MrOwl is a Social Cloud Storage™ platform where users create public or private collections of information called “branches.” The collections can be organized with subtopics, links, documents, and media, and the entire collection is easily searchable and shareable, making it easy to share your knowledge and resources with other people.
Arvind Raichur, CEO, and Co-Founder of MrOwl said, “Chandrayaan-1 was the first mission to discover water on the moon which is a significant discovery in human history. Chandrayaan-2 will also hopefully contribute immensely to mankind with its new findings. Because the era we live in relies heavily on data, it’s important for scientists and everyone else to be able to document and save their information that can make a difference into an easily searchable and shareable resource”.
MrOwl is glad to provide a platform where communities of researchers, scientists, students and teachers can share their insights and interpretations based upon the information broadcasted by Chandrayaan-2.
“It will also be a resource for people to store, organize, and share everything about the moon mission. We hope that users will also be able to use community curated search to expand our knowledge and understanding of moon and origin of our solar system,” he added.
