The Chandrayaan-3 has finished its final de-boosting

  • Chandrayaan-3’s lander module’s orbit has been lowered to 25 km by 134 km.
  • Chandrayaan module to perform a gentle landing on the moon’s south pole on Aug 23, 2023.
  • The rover will conduct in-situ chemical analysis while moving, and the propulsion module will continue its journey for six months.

Chandrayaan-3’s lander module’s orbit has been lowered to 25 km by 134 km thanks to the Indian Space Research Organization’s (ISRO) second and final de-boosting procedure.

This will make it possible for the Chandrayaan module to perform a gentle landing on the moon’s south pole on August 23, 2023. The module will do internal audits and await sunrise at the designated landing site.

Chandrayaan-3

The mission’s goals are to conduct in-situ scientific investigations, demonstrate a secure and gentle landing on the moon’s surface, and show off the rover’s capabilities there. India would carry out a soft landing on the moon, becoming the fourth country to do so after the US, Russia, and China.

For the development and demonstration of new technologies needed for extraterrestrial missions, Chandrayaan-3 consists of a rover, a propulsion module, and an indigenous lander module (LM).

In-situ chemical analysis will be done by the rover as it is moving, and the lander module can softly land at a specific location on the moon. The propulsion module will continue its trip for at least six more months once it separates from the lander module along the lunar orbit.

To examine the spectral and polarimetric measurements of Earth from the lunar orbit, the propulsion module contains a Spectro-polarimetry of Habitable Planet Earth (SHAPE) payload. This will aid in the collection of extraterrestrial signatures that might be compatible with our habitability.
