Chandrayaan 3 Landing: Mission Moon was successful, so how big a success is it for India?
Chandrayaan 3 Moon Landing: The whole world is eyeing Chandrayaan-3, the mission of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). Till now, Chandrayaan is moving forward towards the moon by successfully entering all the orbits of the moon as per the time set by ISRO. If everything goes well, India will create history by landing its spacecraft on the moon on August 23 and will become the fourth country to do so. After the failure of Russia’s Mission Luna-25, the whole world is gazing at Mission Chandrayaan-3.
After 47 years, Russia launched the Moon mission on 10 August. It was supposed to land on the moon on August 21, but a day before that it crashed. After the year 1976, Russia sent its spacecraft to the moon. However, Chandrayaan-3 is not going to make any such mistake. Keeping in mind the failures of ISRO’s previous mission Moon Chandrayaan-2, many changes have been made in Chandrayaan-3. In the year 2019, Chandrayaan-2 could not land on the moon and the mission failed. ISRO chairman S. Somnath also says that even if all the sensors and engines stop working, Chandrayaan-3 will still land on the moon.
No country has landed a rover on the South Pole
The date of 23 August is very special for Indians as well as for the whole world. On this day at 6:04 pm, Chandrayaan-3 will make a soft landing on the moon and the whole world will see history being created. Chandrayaan 3 will have a soft landing on the South Pole of the Moon. After America, Russia and China, India will become the fourth country to make a soft landing on the moon. No country has so far landed a rover on the Moon’s South Pole, so scientists from all over the world are waiting for 6.4 minutes on the evening of 23 August.
