The video sent by Chandrayan 3 which even ISRO is surprised, this video should be watched by all Indians. And should be shared with other brothers and sisters.
Chandrayaan-3 is a follow-on mission to Chandrayaan-2 to demonstrate end-to-end capability in safe landing and roving on the lunar surface. It consists of Lander and Rover configuration. It will be launched by LVM3 from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota. The propulsion module will carry the lander and rover configuration till 100 km lunar orbit. The propulsion module has Spectro-polarimetry of Habitable Planet Earth (SHAPE) payload to study the spectral and Polari metric measurements of Earth from the lunar orbit.
Lander payloads: Chandra’s Surface Thermophysical Experiment (ChaSTE) to measure the thermal conductivity and temperature; Instrument for Lunar Seismic Activity (ILSA) for measuring the seismicity around the landing site; Langmuir Probe (LP) to estimate the plasma density and its variations. A passive Laser Retroreflector Array from NASA is accommodated for lunar laser ranging studies.
Rover payloads: Alpha Particle X-ray Spectrometer (APXS) and Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscope (LIBS) for deriving the elemental composition in the vicinity of landing site.
Debusting process of Chandrayaan 3 has started
India’s third lunar mission Chandrayaan-3 has slowly entered the lunar surface and is now slowing its speed for landing. On Thursday, Chandrayaan-3 sent back the first image of the moon after the lander module separated from the propulsion module, which is quite beautiful. This image was taken by Camera-1 attached to Chandrayaan-3’s Lander Imager on August 17/18. Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has made a video and shared it on its official Twitter handle.
Chandrayaan-3 ‘s Vikram lander will have to cover a distance of about 100 km on its own to reach the moon . The deboosting of the lander module took place on 18 August. In the process of deboosting, the speed of the lander is reduced.

Chandrayaan 3 will land on the lunar surface on August 23.
According to the Indian Space Research Center (ISRO), the lander will land on the lunar surface at 5.47 pm on August 23. The lander Vikram and the rover will land on the South Pole of the Moon. If the Moon-3 successfully soft lands, India will become the fourth country after the US, Russia and China to do so.
In the year 2019, the lander of the Chandrayaan-3 mission crashed on the lunar surface. Immediately, India began preparations for a third lunar mission. ISRO scientists have been working day and night for the past several months to make this mission a success. This time, special care has been taken to ensure that there is no difficulty in the landing of Chandrayaan-3. Chandrayaan-3 was launched on 14 July. Like Chandrayaan-2, Chandrayaan-3’s lander has also been named Vikram.
The mission is designed in such a way that it can be landed on the moon in any condition. When the lander ‘Vikram’ attempts to land on the lunar surface on August 23, it can be landed elsewhere if there are any problems. The objective of this mission is to successfully land on the Moon and prove its capability to walk there.
