Chandrayaan is Indias lunar exploration program, which is managed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The name "Chandrayaan" is derived from two Sanskrit words: "Chandra," which means "moon," and "Yaan," which means "craft" or "vehicle." The program aims to explore and study the Moon, conducting a variety of scientific experiments and investigations.

As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, there have been two main missions under the Chandrayaan program:

Chandrayaan-1: Chandrayaan-1 was Indias first lunar mission, launched in October 2008. It successfully reached lunar orbit and conducted various experiments and observations, including discovering water molecules on the Moons surface. However, the mission was declared lost in August 2009 after losing communication with the spacecraft.

Chandrayaan-2: Chandrayaan-2 is Indias second lunar mission, launched in July 2019. It consisted of an orbiter, a lander named Vikram, and a rover named Pragyan. While the orbiter continues to study the Moon from orbit, the lander and rover attempted a soft landing near the lunar south pole. Unfortunately, the Vikram lander lost communication with ISRO during the descent and could not achieve a soft landing. However, the orbiter remains operational and continues to provide valuable data about the Moon.

Please note that there may have been developments in the Chandrayaan program since my last knowledge update in September 2021. You may want to check the latest news and information from ISRO for any recent missions or updates related to Chandrayaan
