Chandrayaan-3 is India’s second attempt to land on the Moon and the third mission in the Chandrayaan series. With an estimated cost of Rs 615 crore, the mission aims to make India a lunar-faring nation and join the elite group of countries that have successfully landed spacecraft on the lunar surface. The successful separation of the spacecraft from LVM-3 marks an important milestone in the mission.

In the coming days, ISRO will perform orbit-raising maneuvers to guide the spacecraft towards the Moon. Chandrayaan-3 is expected to arrive in lunar orbit on August 5. The final landing location has not been announced yet, but indications suggest that it could be closer to the intended landing spot of Chandrayaan-2, which encountered issues and crash-landed in 2019.

It’s noteworthy that the orbiter of Chandrayaan-2, which is already in lunar orbit, will be used for communication with the ground stations on Earth during the Chandrayaan-3 mission. This utilization of existing infrastructure will help streamline the mission’s operations and enhance communication capabilities.
