Chandrayaan-3 successfully landed on the Moon’s south pole at 6:04 pm IST on August 23, 2023. This makes India only the fourth country after the erstwhile USSR, USA, and China to successfully land a spacecraft on the Moon.
The Chandrayaan-3 mission is a follow-up to the Chandrayaan-2 mission, which was launched in 2019. The Chandrayaan-2 mission failed to land on the Moon due to a technical glitch. However, the Chandrayaan-3 mission has been a success so far.
The Vikram lander and the Pragyan rover are now on the Moon’s surface. The lander will be used to provide communication and power to the rover. The rover will explore the Moon’s south pole, which is a region that has not been explored by any other spacecraft.
The Chandrayaan-3 mission is a major achievement for the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It is a sign of India’s growing capabilities in space exploration. The mission is also a boost to India’s scientific and technological prowess.
Glad to hear that Chandrayaan-3 has successfully landed on the Moon. It is a great achievement for India and a testament to the hard work of the ISRO scientists and engineers. I am excited to see what the Vikram lander and the Pragyan rover will discover on the Moon’s south pole.
The next steps for Chandrayaan-3 are to:
* Deploy the Pragyan rover on the Moon’s surface.
* The rover will begin exploring the Moon’s south pole.
* The lander will provide communication and power to the rover.
* The Chandrayaan-3 mission will continue to operate for several months.
All activities are on schedule.
All systems are normal.
- Lander Module payloads ILSA, RAMBHA and ChaSTE are turned ON today.
- Rover mobility operations have commenced.
- SHAPE payload on the Propulsion Module was turned ON on Sunday.
