ISRO and JAXA are collaborating for the Chandrayaan-4 mission dubbed as the LUPEX mission to explore the lunar surface and find the presence of water. The mission is crucial as several studies have speculated that some regions of the Moon might consist of water which can be useful for several reasons. (JAXA)

LUPEX mission
For the Chandrayaan-4 mission, not only ISRO or JAXA are partnering, but NASA and ESA are also contributing to ensure a successful conclusion. The global space agencies will be sending their scientific instruments which will be attached to the lunar rover.  (JAXA)

LUPEX mission
Finding water on the Moon is crucial as “Understanding how water is retained by planetary bodies is important for the prospect of future human exploration beyond the Earth.” says JAXA. The water is expected to support sustainable space exploration missions in the future. (JAXA)

 Chandrayaan-4 mission
To discover water on the Moon, the Chandrayaan-4 mission will consist of a lander which is being developed by ISRO. The lander will be carrying the rover which is being developed by JAXA. The idea of the mission is similar to the Chandrayaan-3 mission, however, the LUPEX mission has advanced technologies and goals to achieve the desired objectives.  (JAXA)
