Indian Mission Chandrayaan-3 Unravels the Mystery of the Lunar South Pole!
The Chandrayaan-3 is aimed at the lunar south pole, a region with water ice, or frozen water, that could be a source of oxygen, fuel, and water for future Moon missions or a more permanent Moon colony.
If it lands successfully, the Chandrayaan-3 is expected to remain functional for two weeks, running a series of experiments including a spectrometer analysis of the mineral composition of the lunar surface.
The Chandrayaan-3 lander stands about 2 m tall and has a mass of just over 1,700 kg, roughly on par with an SUV. It’s designed to deploy a smaller, 26 kg lunar rover.
NASA administrator Bill Nelson said in a statement to Reuters that the US space agency was “looking forward” to what would be learned from the Indian mission.
