New Delhi: India’s important mission Chandrayaan-3 is slowly moving towards the Moon. Giving information about how far this moon mission has reached, ISRO has said that India’s space mission Chandrayaan 3 has successfully entered the second orbit of the earth. According to ISRO, Chandrayaan 3 is now in Earth orbit at a distance of 41,603 km x 226 km from Earth. The booster for next phase will be done tomorrow between 2-3 PM.
ISRO successfully launched the Chandrayaan 3 mission on July 14. This is India’s third mission to the moon. Under this mission, India plans to successfully land Chandrayaan 3 on the South Pole of the Moon. If India succeeds in this, India will become the fourth country in the world to do so. So far only America, Russia and China have achieved this feat. The goal of ISRO’s mission is a soft landing on the moon. Driving a rover on the lunar surface and collecting information about the elements present on the moon. About 700 crore rupees have been spent in preparing this rocket. The lander of this vehicle will go to that part of the moon i.e. the uninhabited parts of the moon and collect information about the metals and other elements present there.
After the propulsion module of Chandrayaan-3, the most difficult task will begin its landing process. After detaching the propulsion module, the lander will be brought into a 100X30 km lunar orbit. For this deboosting has to be done. That means its speed has to be reduced. This work will be done on August 23. Which will be a very important day for the scientists of ISRO as well as the entire country of India.
