Chandrayan 3 Update: A few days ago, the Indian Space Research Organization successfully launched the nation’s third lunar mission. The potential for the mission’s success is extremely high. Let’s now take a look at the latest update on Chandrayaan 3.
Chandrayan 3 Update
India’s ambitious mission Chandrayaan 3 has successfully entered the fifth and final stage of the moon’s exploration, marking a successful milestone. The process of separating the lander, Vikram, has now begun. It is expected to detach on the morning of August 17th.
To establish the probe Vikram in the range of 30 kilometers (perilune) and the farthest point of 100 kilometers (apolune), it will have to undergo the deboost process. This process aims to slow down the probe. After reaching this range, an attempt to achieve a soft landing on the southern pole of the moon will be made on August 23rd.
According to S Somnath, the Chairman of ISRO, the most crucial part of the landing process is bringing the velocity of the lander from a height of 30 km to the final landing and the ability to transition the vehicle from a horizontal to a vertical direction is the process where we will demonstrate our capability.
The entire process has been repeated multiple times in order to control the necessary procedures and achieve the appropriate landing. Several algorithms have been implemented for attempting to control and achieve a successful landing on the surface of the moon by the lander on 23rd August. If successful, this would be a significant accomplishment for India.
Chandrayaan 3 Mission Goals
Following are the objectives of Chandrayaan 3 mission:-
- The act of descending onto the southernmost point of the lunar surface.
- Exploring the lunar terrain
- Exploring the intricate chemical composition of the moon’s lunar surface
- Exploring the Lunar Surface throughout the Ages
- Exploration for lunar surface water
Importance of Chandrayaan 3 Mission
The Chandrayaan 3 mission is a crucial step in India’s space program. This mission will establish India as the fourth country to land on the moon. It will inspire India to undertake even more ambitious missions in space.
Future of Chandrayaan 3 Mission
The successful completion of the Chandrayaan 3 mission will aid India in achieving a new milestone in space and propel its space program to new heights. Following the Chandrayaan 3 mission, India is planning to carry out more missions on the Moon. These missions will include sending rovers to the lunar surface, collecting samples from the lunar surface, and sending human missions to the Moon.
