Chandrayaan-3 Mission: The Process Of Raising The Third Orbit Of The Spacecraft Is Successful

Chandrayaan-3 Mission: The process of raising the third orbit of the spacecraft is successful, the next firing will be on July 20.

A good news is coming regarding Chandrayaan-3 mission.

In fact, on Tuesday, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has informed by tweeting that the third orbit raising process (Earth-bound apogee firing) of Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft has been successfully executed.

The next firing is planned on 20 July 2023 between 2 pm to 3 pm.

The tweet said, “Mission is on schedule. Third orbit raising procedure (Earth-bound apogee firing) has been successfully carried out from ISTRAC/ISRO, Bengaluru. Next firing on July 20, 2023 from 2 to 3 PM IST.”

Notably, on July 14, the Indian Space Research Organization successfully launched Chandrayaan-3 on an LVM3-M4 rocket from the Satish Dhawan Space Center.

17 minutes after takeoff at 2:35 p.m., the satellite was put into the correct orbit.

Speaking to reporters in Thiruvananthapuram on Saturday, Space Center Director Vikram Sarabhai S Unnikrishnan Nair said the launch pad is working very well and the initial conditions required for the spacecraft to be provided “are very accurate.”

Objective of Chandrayaan-3 mission.

ISRO’s spacecraft Chandrayaan-3 is carrying several scientific instruments with it, which will help scientists understand the Moon better.

But, the main objective of this mission is to successfully soft land on the Moon.

Earlier, at the time of Chandrayaan-2, its objective was to soft land on the lunar surface, which failed at the last moment. At that time ISRO’s lander ‘Vikram’ crashed during landing on the lunar surface.

Like the previous mission, this time also its lander has been named ‘Vikram’ and the rover has been named ‘Pragyan’.

If this time ISRO with Chandrayaan 3 succeeds in soft landing on the surface of the moon, then India will become the fourth country to do so.

Earlier, America, former Soviet Union and China have been successful in doing this.

Let us tell you that, before Chandrayaan 2, Israel’s Space Agency launched its mission for soft landing on the moon, in which they failed.

Along with this, earlier this year, Japan also failed to make a safe landing on the lunar surface.
