The primary objectives of Chandrayaan-2 were to demonstrate the ability to soft-land on the lunar surface and operate a robotic rover on the surface. Scientific goals include studies of lunar topography, mineralogy, elemental abundance, the lunar exosphere, and signatures of hydroxyl and water ice. The orbiter would’ve mapped the lunar surface and help to prepare 3D maps of it. The onboard radar would’ve also mapped the surface while studying the water ice in the south polar region and thickness of the lunar regolith on the surface.
