India’s space agency is set to launch its third lunar mission, Chandrayaan 3, on Friday afternoon. The mission will be a follow-up to the Chandrayaan-2 mission, which failed to land a rover on the moon in 2020.
The Chandrayaan-3 mission will consist of an orbiter, a lander, and a rover. The orbiter will study the moon’s surface and atmosphere, while the lander will attempt to soft-land on the moon’s surface. The rover will then explore the moon’s surface.
The Chandrayaan-3 mission is scheduled to launch from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. The launch window is open from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
The Chandrayaan-3 mission is a significant milestone for India’s space program. The success of the mission would demonstrate India’s ability to soft-land on the moon and explore its surface.
The mission is also a testament to the resilience of India’s space scientists. The Chandrayaan-2 mission was a setback, but the scientists have learned from their mistakes and are determined to succeed with Chandrayaan-3.
PM Modi’s hug for K Sivan showed solidarity with ISRO after Chandrayaan-2 setback
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s hug for K Sivan, the former chief of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), after the Chandrayaan-2 mission failed was a gesture of solidarity and support for the scientists.
The hug showed that Modi understood the disappointment and frustration that the scientists were feeling, and that he was there to offer them his support. It was also a sign of Modi’s faith in the ISRO and its ability to succeed in the future.
The Chandrayaan-2 mission was a major setback for the ISRO, but it is important to remember that the ISRO has a long history of success. The ISRO has successfully launched a number of satellites and probes, and it has played a leading role in the international space community.
The ISRO is a world-class space agency, and it is clear that the scientists are determined to learn from the Chandrayaan-2 setback and succeed in the future. Modi’s hug was a gesture of support that will help the scientists to move forward and achieve their goals.
