Chandrayaan 3: A Mission To The Lunar South Pole

The Chandrayaan-3 with a rocket LVM3 heavy-lift vehicle mated by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It is launched derive from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota on July 14. The journey is measured to take around 45-48 days, with the spacecraft positively reaching the Moon around August 23 or 24.

Chandrayaan-3 is chasing the Chandrayaan-2, which was India's first try to land softly a spacecraft on the Moon. Chandrayaan-2's lander, Vikram, lost contact with Earth during its descent to the lunar surface in September 2019.

Chandrayaan-3 will try to land softly on the Moon's South Pole, which is a neighbourhood that has not been explored by any other spacecraft. The mission will carry a spacecraft and a drifter, which will be used to study the lunar surface and atmosphere.

LVM3 is a heavy-lift launch vehicle carrying up to 4,000 kg of weight. The mission will help India to research the Moon and a better understanding of the lunar environment.

The important facts about the Chandrayaan-3:

The goal of Chandrayaan-3 is to land a rover on the lunar South Pole.

The mission is also important for scientific research, as the lunar South Pole is thought to be a rich source of water ice.

The spacecraft consists of three modules: a strength module, a satellite and a maverick.

The propulsion module will provide the spacecraft with the necessary thrust to reach the Moon.

The lander will land softly on the lunar surface.

The rover will explore the lunar surface.

The mission will help to understand the Moon's activity and to cover the way for future lunar exploration.
