Bengaluru: Just a few days to wait! Then the third mission, India's Chandrayaan 3 will pass by the moon on July 13. At 2:30 p.m. local time. The rocket, GSLV Mk-III will be ready for the third lunar mission. The spacecraft will leave the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota for the purpose of landing on the moon. Indian Space Research Center (ISRO) Chairman S. Somnath officially announced this on Wednesday, June 28, 2023.

This third lunar mission is very important for India in space exploration. Before this, the Chandrayaan-2 mission in 2019 was not successful. Chandrayaan 2 crossed the moon on July 22, 2019. However, Chandrayaan 2's lander 'Vikram' hit the moon's surface at the beginning of the 47th day. During the landing, the balance beam could not reduce the speed. Vikram had a hard landing 500 meters away from the moon's surface. This resulted in a crash. The separation was successfully carried out by NASA. On December 3, NASA released images of the wreckage of Vikram.

Three years after the launch of Chandrayaan 2, ISRO is sending a Chandrayaan 3 the moon's surface. Although Chandrayaan 2 was in vain, ISRO scientists are very cautious. Everything is being checked at the last moment. Landers and rovers are being sent, but no orbiters are being sent.

However, ISRO is confident of success in this campaign. Chandrayaan-3 will help scientists to understand the moon better, study it. All preparations are said to be going well to safely land a robotic rover on the lunar soil. According to ISRO sources, the tests have been carried out for a long time. Regardless of the risks, everything has been thoroughly checked. No errors have been found anywhere. Special emphasis has been placed on safety by learning from previous experiences.

Now Chandrayaan-3 also has a lander and a rover, just like Chandrayaan-2. They have the same name, Lander Vikram and rover Pragyan. However, this time there is no orbiter to go around the moon. Instead, this time there is a payload called Spectro-Polarimetry of Habitable Planet Earth (SHAPE). This instrument will study Earth's spectral and polarimetric measurements from lunar orbit, providing scientists with valuable information about our home planet.

Before this, in the year 2019, Chandrayaan-2 had a setback. Even though it was going to land on the moon like a bird's feather, it hit the moon's surface with force. At that time, the accident was said to be due to the change in speed determined during landing on the lunar surface. So this time, ISRO is more careful.
