Where is Chandrayaan 3 Now? Chandrayaan-3, Isro’s third journey to the moon, will land on the moon in a few hours, and everyone is excited to see this historic event. Isro has asked schools and other educational institutions to live-stream the Chandrayaan-3 launch before it is supposed to happen.
In a statement, India’s space study body said, “The soft landing of Chandrayaan-3 is a major event that not only piques the interest of our young people but also makes them want to learn more about the world. We all feel a deep feeling of pride and unity as we celebrate how well Indian science and technology have done. It will help make the world a better place for scientific research and new ideas.
“Because of this, all schools and educational institutions in the country are asked to take part in this important event. Isro also said, “The institutions are encouraged to make their students and staff aware of this event and to set up live streaming of the Chandrayaan-3 soft landing on their own grounds.”
Where is Chandrayaan 3 Now?
The Chandrayaan-3 lander module is currently close to the moon as it orbits it. Chandrayaan-3 will try to land on the moon’s south pole on Wednesday. This is the most important part of India’s ambitious journey to the moon. If the mission goes well, India will join the United States, China, and the Soviet Union on the list of countries that have figured out how to land softly on the moon’s surface.
Experts say that the last 15 to 20 minutes of the mission when Chandrayaan-3’s Vikram lander makes its soft landing, will be very important for the success of the project. Today, people in India and all over the world are hoping for Chandrayaan-3 to land.
ISRO is being extra careful this time around because India’s second journey to the moon failed in the last 20 minutes before landing. Due to the high risk to the spaceship in the last few minutes before landing on the moon, this time has been called “20 or 17 minutes of terror” by many. During this phase, the whole process will become self-sufficient, and the Vikram lander will have to start its own engines at the right times and heights.
Vikram Lander Scheduled to Make Landing at 6.04 PM
Before the historic landing tomorrow at 6:04 p.m., the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said on Monday that they will start a live broadcast of the landing at 5:20 p.m. on the same day. ISRO’s main website has the link to the livestream, which has also been shared.
The Lander Module of Chandrayaan-3, which has the lander Vikram and the rover Pragyan, has been looking for the “perfect spot” to land after doing all the necessary moves to orbit the Moon and slow down.
ISRO said on Monday that the Lander Module of Chandrayaan-3 and the Orbiter of Chandrayaan-2, India’s second Moon mission launched in 2019, were able to talk to each other. “‘Welcome, friend!'” The Ch-2 orbiter gave the Ch-3 LM an official welcome. There is now two-way contact between the two. “MOX can now get to the LM in more ways,” ISRO wrote on X.
Chandrayaan-2’s rover couldn’t land on the moon’s surface, and after getting as close as 2.1 km, it stopped talking to Earth in September 2019. A top ISRO scientist was quoted by the news agency ANI on Monday as saying, “If any factors look bad, we will put off landing the module on the Moon until August 27.”
‘Smooth Sailing’ Ahead of Landing: Says ISRO
ISRO’s Chandrayaan-3 project has been traveling for 40 days since it left the Sathish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota. It is now getting ready to land. If everything goes well, the Vikram rover should land softly on the moon on August 23 at 6:04 PM IST. Below is a link to a live stream of the landing. The event will begin at 5:27 PM IST.
The Chandrayaan-3 mission comes after the Chandrayaan-2 mission, which ended in 2019 when the Vikram lander crashed into the surface of the moon. The mission’s main goal is simple: to show that the space agency is capable of making a soft landing on the Moon.
If the journey is successful, India will join a small group of countries that have soft-landed on the Moon. So far, the US, the USSR, and China are the only members of the club. With the Luna-25 mission, Russia made its first try to land on the Moon since 1976, when it was still part of the Soviet Union.
The same thing happened to Luna-25 as it did to Chandrayaan-3. The Russian Space Agency said Sunday that the spaceship crashed into the surface of the moon. Luna-25 wanted to be the first mission to land on the south pole of the Moon. This was also the goal of both Chandrayaan-2 and Chandrayaan-3. Now, Chandrayaan-3 could be the first mission to land on the south pole of the Moon.
Chandrayaan-3, India’s third lunar mission, is set to land on the moon’s south pole on Wednesday. The mission is the most important part of India’s ambitious journey to the moon, and if successful, India will join the United States, China, and the Soviet Union on the list of countries that have figured out how to land softly on the moon’s surface. The Vikram lander’s soft landing is crucial for the project’s success.
The Chandrayaan-3 Lander Module and Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter have been able to communicate, with the latter now able to communicate with the Lander Module. If everything goes well, the Vikram rover should land softly on the moon on August 23 at 6:04 PM IST. The Chandrayaan-3 mission comes after the Chandrayaan-2 mission, which ended in 2019 when the Vikram lander crashed into the surface of the moon.
