On July 14, at 2.35 p.m., the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched Chandrayaan-3, its third mission to the Moon.
If the mission is successful, India will join the United States, Russia, and China as the fourth nation to accomplish this incredible achievement.
Following are six essential details concerning India's Chandrayaan 3 mission.
The launched spacecraft is projected to travel to the Moon from Earth in about a month, and it is planned to land on August 23.
It will work for one lunar day after landing, which is equivalent to 14 days on Earth. The researchers hope to investigate the lunar soil, use a rover to explore the moon's surface, and record moonquakes.
A heavy-lift launch vehicle called the GSLV Mark 3 (LVM 3) was used to launch the spacecraft.
