India’s historic moon mission “Chandrayaan-3 “ lifts up successfully.

Till now India has been able to do two mission that is “Chandrayaan-1“ and “Chandrayaan-2“ but today “Chandrayaan-3 “ lifts up successfully.

The south pole of the Moon is still largely unexplored – the surface area that remains in shadow there is much larger than that of the Moon’s north pole, which means there is a possibility of water in areas that are permanently shadowed. Chandrayaan-1 was the first to discover water on the moon in 2008. near the south pole.

This is India’s second attempt at soft-landing robotic instruments on the lunar surface after the previous attempt, Chandrayaan-2, failed in 2019. Chandrayaan-2 which also comprised an orbiter, a lander and a rover – was launched in July 2019 but it was only partially successful. Its orbiter continues to circle and study the Moon even today, but the lander-rover failed to make a soft landing and crashed during touchdown. It was because of “a last-minute glitch in the braking system”.

The third in India’s programme of lunar exploration, Chandrayaan-3 is expected to build on the success of its earlier Moon missions.

India has launched its third Moon mission, aiming to be the first to land near its little-explored south pole.

As only three countries, the U.S., Russia and China, have successfully soft-landed on the moon so far and this gives a chance to India to be one of those few countries that has been able to do soft landing as the Chandrayaan-3 mission’s objective is to develop and demonstrate new technologies required for inter-planetary missions.

Chandrayaan-3, which weighs 3,900kg and cost 6.1bn rupees ($75m; £58m), has the “same goals” as its predecessor – to ensure a soft-landing on the Moon’s surface.

According to ISRO, the lander can soft-land at a specified lunar site and deploy the rover. The rover will perform in-situ chemical studies of the lunar surface as it moves around. The lander also has scientific instruments to study the lunar surface and subsurface.

Speaking to reporters after the successful launch, ISRO Chairman S. Somanath said the next 42 days are crucial. “As per the nominal programme, we will have five earth-bound manoeuvres [that] will end on July 31. After that we have the trans-lunar insertion, [which] will take place on August 1. After that, it will be captured [by the] moon.This will be followed by the separation of the propulsion module and the lander module on August 17. “The landing is currently planned on August 23 at 5.47 pm IST, if everything goes as per plan,” he added.

In this launch, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted: “Chandrayaan-3 scripts a new chapter in India’s space odyssey. It soars high, elevating the dreams and ambitions of every Indian… This momentous achievement is a testament to our scientists’ relentless dedication. I salute their spirit and ingenuity!”

French Embassy in India’s said, “Congratulations @isro on the successful launch of LVM3 M4 & #Chandrayaan3! India’s feats in space are truly inspiring. As its long-standing partner of over 60 years, France is keen to boost our cooperation on space exploration and scientific endeavors. #SpaceMission”

Also, Minister of State Jitendra Singh, who was present at the launch, said, “It is indeed a moment of glory for India. Thank you team ISRO for making India proud… Today is also a day of vindication: vindication of the dream Vikram Sarabhai had six decades ago.”

India is not the only country with an eye on the Moon – there’s a growing global interest in it. And scientists say there is still much to understand about the Moon that’s often described as a gateway to deep space.

This makes a huge impact on the science and technology of this world as Not only the science and technological department is making progress but a huge amount of space information is also being discovered. It also helps in the future technological department and to make new progress in upcoming days.
