India's journey for the Moon with Chandrayaan-3 lunar lander

Riddhimaan Santra |Saturday, July 8, 2023

Chandrayaan-3 is the planned third lunar exploration mission of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), India's national space agency. It is a follow-up mission to the Chandrayaan-2 mission, which was launched in July 2019.

Chandrayaan-2 aimed to land a rover called Vikram on the lunar surface and deploy a lunar orbiter named Pragyan. However, during the final stages of the mission, the communication with the Vikram lander was lost, and it could not successfully soft-land on the Moon's surface. Despite the partial success of Chandrayaan-2, the mission provided valuable scientific data and imagery.

Following the partial success of Chandrayaan-2, ISRO announced its plans to launch Chandrayaan-3. The objective of Chandrayaan-3 is to land a rover on the lunar surface, similar to the initial goal of Chandrayaan-2. The mission aims to further explore the Moon's surface, study its geology, and analyze the presence of water or other resources.

ISRO has been working on the development of Chandrayaan-3, including the design and fabrication of the lander and rover systems. The mission is expected to incorporate lessons learned from the Chandrayaan-2 mission to ensure a higher probability of success.

As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, specific details regarding the launch date and other mission specifics for Chandrayaan-3 had not been officially announced by ISRO. For the most accurate and up-to-date information, it is recommended to refer to the official announcements and press releases from ISRO or related sources.
