chandryaan 3

On August 23, 2023, India made history by successfully landing its Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft on the South Pole of the moon, becoming the first country to achieve this feat. The mission’s success was celebrated not only by India but also by the global community, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi stating that it “belongs to all of humanity.”

The Chandrayaan-3 mission involved a soft landing on the moon’s surface, followed by deploying the Pragyan rover from the Vikram lander. Over the course of 14 lunar days, equivalent to 14 Earth days, the rover is set to carry out a series of experiments on the moon’s surface. These include examining the lunar soil and rocks, measuring the ions and electrons density, and studying the thermal properties of the lunar surface near the polar region.

However, the Vikram lander and Pragyan rover are not designed to return to Earth. Instead, they will remain on the moon, providing valuable data to the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). After the 14-day period, the rover and lander will become inactive due to the extreme cold of the lunar night. However, ISRO scientists have not ruled out the possibility of them becoming active again when the sun rises. 

The successful landing of Chandrayaan-3 has been met with widespread praise and congratulations. Leaders worldwide, including US Vice President Kamala Harris and Russian President Vladimir Putin, have commended India on this significant achievement. Within India, the mission’s success has been celebrated by various public and private sector companies involved in the mission, as well as by the general public. 

New Missions

Following the success of Chandrayaan-3, ISRO is shifting its focus to upcoming missions, including the Aditya-L1 mission to study the Sun and the ambitious Gaganyaan mission, which aims to send humans into space. 

In summary, the Chandrayaan-3 mission has marked a significant milestone in India’s space exploration efforts, demonstrating the country’s growing capabilities in this field and contributing valuable knowledge to our understanding of the moon.
