On Thursday,13th July, 2023 the countdown to the historic mission of launching Chandrayaan 3 began. If the mission is successful, India will join a select group of countries that have accomplished this accomplishment, including the United States, China, and the erstwhile Soviet Union.

Chandrayaan 3, the third iteration of India's lunar mission, is scheduled to launch from Sriharikota's Satish Dhawan Space Centre at 2:35 p.m. on July 14. The scientific community and Indians around the world are anxiously awaiting the outcome of the second iteration of India's moon mission.

1. Chandrayaan 3 is a follow-up mission to Chandrayaan 2, which crashed landed in September 2019 as a result of a software error. Chandrayaan 3 has various upgrades that ISRO learned from Chandrayaan 2 to guarantee success this time. On August 23, it will reportedly touch down on the Moon.

2. Chandrayaan 3 is made up of a lander module, a rover, and an indigenous propulsion module. It is done with the aim of developing and showcasing new technologies needed for interplanetary missions. The lander and rover will be propelled by the propulsion module from injection orbit to a 100 km lunar orbit. In order to examine the spectral and polarimetric measurements of the earth from the lunar orbit, it also carries a payload called Spectro-polarimetry of Habitable Planetary Earth (SHAPE).

3. India would join the United States, China, and the former Soviet Union in an exclusive group of countries. These have accomplished this achievement if the mission is successful.

4. In advance of India's ambitious Chandrayaan-3 space programme, former ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan stated on Thursday that if it successfully lands, India will become just the fourth country to do so, increasing the potential for space research development in the nation.

5. ISRO Chairman S Somanath noted that for Chandrayaan-3, the space agency chose a failure-based design, focusing on what can go wrong and how to protect it to assure a successful landing, as opposed to a success-based design for Chandrayaan-2.

6. Chandrayaan-3 will launch with just a lander and a rover, as opposed to Chandrayaan-2's combination of the Vikram lander, Pragyan rover, and an orbiter. According to reports, Chandrayaan-3 would employ the Orbiter that was launched with Chandrayaan-2 and is currently circling the Moon to fulfil its communication and terrain imaging needs.

7. "Lander hazard detection and avoidance cameras" are a feature of the Chandrayaan-3 lander mission. This allow for communication with the orbiter and mission control throughout the Moon landing procedure.

8. The landing area has increased from 500m x 500m to four km by 2.5 km, according to the ISRO chief. It can land anywhere, so you are not forced to aim at a particular location. It will only aim at a particular place under ideal circumstances. As a result, if the performance is subpar, it might happen anywhere in that range, he noted.

9. According to him, Chandrayaan-3 has greater fuel. It gives more mobility and the flexibility to handle dispersion or change its landing location. The Vikram lander now has extra solar panels on different surfaces, according to the ISRO director. This is to ensure that it can generate power regardless of how it lands.

10. This expedition today will be anticipated by everyone in India and the world!
