Chandrayaan 3 was successfully launched on 14 July 2023 from Sathish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. Are you feeling excited to know where your spacecraft is now, right? 

S Somanath, the chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), expressed confidence in developing the upcoming Chandrayaan 3 lunar mission on Monday. He has also ensured that all systems are functioning as intended. He also discussed the successful launch of GAST-24, representing another advance for India’s space exploration efforts.

“Everything is going great right now,” said Chairman S Somanath. Up to the 23 August, it will make a number of moves before touching down (on the Moon). The satellite is healthy.”

Chandrayaan 3 is progressing smoothly. The Moon’s orbit decreased last night from approximately 18,000 kilometers to approximately 4,600 kilometers, with a distance of 165 kilometers at its closest point to the Moon.

India’s third lunar exploration mission, Chandrayaan 3, seeks to build on the achievements of Chandrayaan 1 and Chandrayaan 2. The mission is moving towards its planned lunar landing on 23 August, and Chairman Somnath’s frequent updates demonstrate ISRO’s rigorous work and commitment to accuracy.

The successful liftoff of communication satellite GSAT-24, which Mr. Somanath discussed, exemplifies ISRO’s comprehensive commitment to space research and technology.

India’s status as a major participant in the field of satellite communication and technology is further cemented by the launch of GSAT-24.

Mr. Somanath’s updates prove ISRO’s unwavering dedication to improving space exploration and technology. The nation’s scientific and technological strength continues to reach new heights as the Chandrayaan 3 project advances and GSAT-24 takes its position among India’s communication satellites.

The Chandrayaan-3 insertion phase on Sunday was celebrated by both India and the ISRO, according to Simon Wong, Singapore’s High Commissioner to India.

He also praised the moon images captured by the lunar mission. “Our warmest congratulations go out to the Chandrayaan-3 moon entry phase. What a fantastic picture! Tweeted by the High Commissioner Wong: “HC Wong.

The first images of the Moon captured by Chandrayaan-3 were made public on Sunday by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

Chandrayan-3 captured stunning lunar surface images as it entered the Moon’s orbit on Saturday. The Moon, as seen by Chandrayaan3 spacecraft during Lunar Orbit Insertion (LOI) on 5 August 2023, was posted on the mission’s official Twitter account.

The mission’s goal is to send a rover to the south pole of the Moon, which any other nation still needs to visit. The project comes after Chandrayaan-2, which was launched into lunar orbit and then crashed landed on the Moon in 2019.

The lander performs the soft Moon landing and is equipped with several scientific tools for on-site research. The Pragyan rover aims to study and experiment on the lunar surface to comprehend the lunar composition.

To learn more about the makeup of the Moon, the lander and rover will perform in-situ tests and observations. The 26-kilogram six-wheeled rover has research tools like cameras, spectrometers, and a drill.
