New Delhi: The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has announced the launch date of the much-awaited Chandrayaan-3 mission. Chandrayaan-3 will be launched on July 14 at 2.35 pm. Earlier, the agency had fixed the date between July 12 and 19. Chandrayaan-3 is focused on making a safe landing on the lunar surface. Earlier, ISRO Chairman S Somnath had said that this would be India’s second major success in space. Chandrayaan-3 will be sent to the moon by a GSLV-MKTH 3 (GSLV-3) rocket from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Shree Harikota. With this mission, India will become the fourth country in the world to soft land on the moon after America, Russia and China.
The mistake was made during Chandrayaan-2. It will not be done in Chandrayaan-3. ISRO is sending only landers and rovers in Chandrayaan-3. When Chandrayaan-2’s orbiter orbiting the moon will connect the lander and the rover. Most of these spacecraft’s programs are already automatic. Hundreds of sensors have been installed in it. Which will help in its landing and other functions. Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram lander had five throttle engines, one of which malfunctioned, leading to a bad landing. While this Chandrayaan-3 will have only four landers.
According to information, after Chandrayaan-2, this mission is being sent for a safe landing on the lunar surface. Chandrayaan-2 mission failed in the last stage. Its lander hit the Earth’s surface with a shock, after which it lost contact with the Earth’s control room. Chandrayaan-3 is being sent to complete the same unfinished mission. Sensors installed in Chandrayaan-3 will help the lander at the time of landing height, landing site, speed, protection from stones. Chandrayaan-3 will start landing on the surface of the moon from a height of 7KM. This sensor will be activated at an altitude of 2KM. Which will help in the landing of Chandrayaan-3.
