 To commemorate Chandrayaan-2's two-year operation around the moon, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Chairman and Secretary, Department of Space K. Sivan, inaugurated a two-day Lunar Science Workshop 2021 on Monday.

He also released Chandrayaan-2 science documents and data products, as well as data from Chandrayaan-2 orbiter space payloads.

Chandrayaan-2's eight payloads are performing scientific observations of the Moon using remote sensing techniques and in-situ methods.

ISRO reports that science data have been made available to universities and institutes for their analysis, in order to increase participation in the Chandrayaan-2 mission's science.

For students, faculty, and institutes to effectively reach the scientists, the two-day Lunar Science Workshop is streamed live on ISRO's Facebook page and website.

In this workshop, scientists will present the science results of the eight payloads.

The science results will be followed by lectures about the Chandrayaan-2 missions, tracking, operations and data archival aspects. These lectures will take place from September 6 to 7. In addition to ISRO/DOS scientists, Indian Institutes of Science Education Research scientists from Kolkata, IISc Bengaluru, and IIT Roorkee will be giving lectures on lunar science.

India's second lunar mission, Chandrayaan-2, is called Chandrayaan-2.
