Top 10 Fascinating Details About Chandrayaan

A smooth landing at the south pole of the moon is the goal of Chandrayaan-3, a mission that comes after Chandrayaan-2.

The GSLV, often referred to as Launch Vehicle Mark III, is the rocket that launched the moon lander Vikram. This launcher has a height of around 5 meters.

On August 23, the spacecraft is scheduled to land on the moon following a more than 40-day journey.

In order to make it more dependable than its predecessor, ISRO made certain improvements. The Lander Vikram, which bears Vikram Sarabhai's name, the Rover Pragyan, and a propulsion module make up Chandrayaan-3.

The craft's total weight is 3,900 kg, of which the propulsion weighs 2148 kg and the combined weight of the lander and Rover is 1752 kg.

The Earth-Centric Phase, Lunar Transfer Phase, and Moon-Centric Phase are the three phases of Chandrayaan-3.

The Pragyan Rover will be launched once Chandrayaan-3 safely touches down on the moon. A ramp will be used to free the Rover from the Lander.

The Chandrayaan-3 Vikram Lander has four scientific equipment on board.

The lander will make contact with the moon's surface at a horizontal velocity of less than 5 meters per second, a vertical velocity of less than 2 meters per second, and a slope of less than 120 degrees.

Only the United States, the former Soviet Union, and China have successfully conducted lunar landings to date. India hopes to be the first country in the world to set foot on the Moon and the fourth country to do so safely.
