What Chandrayaan-3 Has Seen on the Moon So Far!
Chandrayaan-3 was a proposed mission by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to further explore the Moon. Chandrayaan-1, India’s first lunar mission, was launched in 2008, and it was followed by Chandrayaan-2 in 2019. Chandrayaan-2 was a more ambitious mission that included an orbiter, lander, and rover. However, the lander (Vikram) had a hard landing and was not successful in making a soft landing on the lunar surface.
Chandrayaan-3 was expected to be a follow-up mission primarily focused on landing a rover on the Moon. It was planned to use the experience and data gathered from Chandrayaan-2 to improve the success of the lander and rover components. The mission aimed to conduct further research and exploration of the Moon’s surface, including studying the lunar regolith and geology.
Will India show us the Moon in a completely new way? In August 2023, the Chandrayaan-3 mission has landed and scientists are expecting completely new findings.
What exactly will the rover Pragyan and lander Vikram study on the Moon? And why did India land its rovers at the lunar south pole of all places?
