What Space Mission Are We Currently Working On?

What space mission are we currently working on at Space Consulting Company? The answer is.......all kinds! We have a wide range of tasks that require lots of attention. Here's a quick overview on what you can expect:

What Space Mission Are We Currently Working On?

1. Juno

Juno is NASA's second spacecraft to visit Jupiter after Galileo. Juno entered Jupiter orbit on July 4, 2016, and has been orbiting the planet since. It will conduct a three-year science mission, studying Jupiter's auroras and polar regions with its suite of science instruments.

Juno also carries an instrument called Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) that detects auroras in real time. The mission was launched on August 5, 2011 and arrived at Jupiter on July 4, 2016.


We are working on a mission called OSIRIS-REx, which stands for Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security and Regolith Explorer. The mission will study asteroid Bennu, the first asteroid that could support a human visit. We hope to find out more about the origins of Earth and learn more about asteroids.

The spacecraft will launch in September 2020 — two years after launch. It will travel to asteroid Bennu and then go into orbit around it. The spacecraft will measure the asteroid's mass and orbit as well as collect samples from its surface for return to Earth in 2023.

The OSIRIS-REx mission is part of NASA's New Frontiers program, which is dedicated to finding new worlds beyond our solar system.


Chandrayaan-2, India's second lunar mission, will be launched on a GSLV MkIII rocket from Isro's spaceport in Sriharikota on July 11.

The mission's main objective is to search for water and other resources on the Moon. The Chandrayaan-2 mission will also help us understand how our planet evolved through studying the history of its satellite.

Chandrayan-2 will be launched with two payloads - Vikram Lander (VSVL) and Pragyan Rover (PR)- that can land on the Moon as early as possible after its launch into space.

The rover will carry out scientific experiments during its 14-day lunar mission, which is expected to last till September 7.

During its mission, according to ISRO officials, Vikram Lander will land near South Pole of Moon at around 4km height from the surface. It will then move around for 14 days in a triangular pattern before it heads back towards Earth with more data about the Moon's surface and atmosphere.

A scientific payload on board, named PRINS (Polar Region In Situ Nucleus Spectrometer), has been specifically developed by scientists who were part of Chandrayaan-1 mission

We are on several missions now, but these are the most important ones.
