In a conversation with journalists following the impeccable launch, S. Somanath, the Chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), emphasized the significance of the forthcoming 42 days. Stressing the program’s timeline, he revealed, “We have meticulously planned five Earth-related exercises, scheduled to conclude on the last day of July.” . After that, we have a trans-lunar injection, which will take place on August 1. Following that, the capture of the Moon will happen. Then, on August 17, the propulsion module and the lander module will be separated. If everything goes as planned, the landing is scheduled for August 23 at 5:47 PM IST.”

New Chapter: Modi

Congratulating the launch, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted, “Chandrayaan-3 has opened a new chapter in India’s space journey. Propelling itself to great heights, this remarkable feat uplifts the dreams and aspirations of countless individuals across India. The sheer magnitude of this milestone achievement stands as an unwavering testament to the relentless dedication exhibited by our esteemed scientists. I salute their passion and simplicity!”

On the occasion of the launch, present State Minister Jitendra Singh said, “This is truly a proud moment for India. I express gratitude to Team ISRO for bringing pride to India… Today is also a validation of the dream of Vikram Sarabhai from six decades ago.”

LV-3 separated from the spacecraft approximately 16 minutes after liftoff. It was an integrated module that included the propulsion module, lander module, and rover. It entered an elliptical parking orbit (EPO) with a closest point of approximately 170 km and a farthest point of 36,500 km from Earth.

The indigenous Lander Module (LM) and Propulsion Module (PM) are part of Chandrayaan-3. The project intends to create and showcase fresh technology required for extraterrestrial expeditions.

The EPO will equidistantly position the Pragyan Rover (a component of the Lander module) in a spherical chamber around 100 km above the lunar surface. The “Habitable Planetary Earth’s Spectro-Polarimetry” (SHAPE) instrument, which is used to examine Earth’s reflected emissions, is also housed in this module.

The lander may deploy the rover after making a soft touchdown at a chosen lunar location, according to ISRO. While wandering, the rover will investigate the in-situ chemical composition of the lunar surface. Additionally, the lander is equipped with equipment for conducting research on the lunar surface and subsurface.


The Pragyan module will conduct a series of maneuvers next month to raise its orbit towards the Moon and be captured by lunar gravity. Once established in the lunar orbit, the lander will separate itself and attempt a soft landing on the lunar surface.

The objective of the Chandrayaan 3 is to develop and demonstrate new technologies necessary for interplanetary missions.

Actions taken to ensure Chandrayaan-3’s successful soft landing include: Sivan, a former ISRO Chairman

According to former chairman Sivan on Friday, ISRO has made improvements and is hoping for a safe landing on the lunar surface with Chandrayaan-3, nearly four years after the botched soft landing on the moon.

Sivan told PTI that despite the launch’s difficult circumstances, “This is a very important launch, and we have successfully accomplished it.” He claimed that there are strong hopes for the ambitious Chandrayaan 3 project in India following its launch.

During our previous endeavor (Chandrayaan-2), the landing operation, unfortunately, did not culminate in a successful outcome. So this time, we’re giving it another shot. We have all the necessary corrective actions planned. The launch was successful today. The first phase has thus been successfully completed, according to Sivan, who oversaw the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) during the Chandrayaan-2 project and spoke with Space.com from Sriharikota Spaceport.

Achieving a successful lunar landing is an immensely intricate and formidable feat, far from being an effortless endeavor. we are hopeful that we will land successfully.”

Rambha, ILSA to help ISRO understand the moon better

Chandrayaan-3, which aims to achieve a soft landing on the lunar surface, enhancing the path for future interplanetary missions, carries six payloads that will assist ISRO in understanding lunar soil and obtain images of the lunar class from the lunar orbit.

The payloads, which include Rambha and ILSA, will demonstrate a series of pathfinder experiments during the 14-day mission. They will study the lunar exosphere and perform surface excavation to understand its mineral composition.

The Chandr Lander Vikram rover’s intelligence will click images as it studies the seismological activity on the moon by dropping some instruments. Using a laser beam, it will attempt to vaporize regolith, a piece of the lunar surface, to study the gases emitted during the process.

“We know that there is no atmosphere on the moon. But it’s not entirely true because gases come out of it. They are trapped and stay very close to the surface. It changes with day and night,” said ISRO Chairman S. Somanath to PTI.

The Radio Anatomy of Moon-Bound Hypersensitive Ionosphere and Atmosphere (RAMBHA) onboard the lander will measure plasma density and its variations over time in the vicinity of the lunar surface.

Somanath stated that the rover will study how the mini-environment, atomic environment, and charged particles differ.

“It’s very interesting. We also want to find out if there are any electric or thermal peculiarities in the regolith,” he said.

The Lunar Seismic Activity Instrument (ILSA) will measure the seismicity around the landing site and map the structure of the lunar crust and mantle.

“We will drop an instrument and measure the vibrations, which you call ‘moonquake’ behavior or internal processes happening there,” said Somanath.

In order to aid in the hunt for life on exoplanets outside of our solar system, the Spectro-Polarimetry of Habitable Exoplanet (SHAPE) project will examine the spectro-polarimetric signals of Earth’s atmosphere in the near-infrared waveband.
