Chandrayaan-3 will launch in August
The Space on Wheels documentary shows what Chandrayaan-3 Lander looks like touching the surface of the moon. Minister of Science and Technology Dr. Jitendra Singh said that the mission has been delayed due to Kovid-19. Apart from this many other ongoing missions have also been affected. ISRO says it is trying to launch the mission by August this year. However, at present it seems difficult. Because many hardware tests are still pending. In February this year, the space department said work on Chandrayaan-3 was underway and it would be launched in August this year.
The 17-minute documentary also mentioned other missions
In addition to Chandrayaan-3, the 17-minute documentary also talks about the country’s upcoming Aditya L1 mission and the Gaganyan mission that will send Indian astronauts into space. The Aditya L1 mission will be placed at the first Lagrange point of the Earth-Solar system. It will explore many of the properties of the sun, such as the dynamics and origin of coronal mass ejection. India is working with the European Space Agency to create a network to track lunar and solar missions. The European Space Agency (ESA) says its Global Deep Space Communications antenna will provide all possible support for both missions. They will track the spacecraft, determine its location at critical locations, and issue commands.
Chandrayaan-2 completed 9,000 orbits in lunar orbit
Chandrayaan-3 Mission has been prepared after Chandrayaan-2. Chandrayaan-2 had two parts – Lander and Rovert. Lander crashed near the moon in 2019. It fell to the ground while moving rapidly from a height of about 350 meters above the surface. While the rover of Chandrayaan-2 has so far orbited the moon more than 9000 times.
