Chandrayaan-3 Latest News: The ISRO space mission might create history by becoming the first to touch down on the southernmost part of the moon. If everything works out smoothly, India could become only the fourth nation to achieve a gentle landing on the moon.

Chandrayaan-3’s Moon landing is happening soon!

After traveling for 40 days from the Sathish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is getting ready for the landing. If everything goes as planned, the Vikram lander will gently touch down on the Moon at 6.04 PM IST on August 23. You can watch the live coverage of this event.

Before the launch, ISRO mentioned that they are all set to start the mission’s automatic landing process. They intend to do this at 5.44 PM IST. From this point onward, the Vikram lander will use its onboard computers and logic to attempt a gentle landing on the Moon’s surface.

Chandrayaan-3 is the next step after Chandrayaan-2, which took place in 2019 and unfortunately saw the Vikram lander crash on the Moon. The main goal of Chandrayaan-3 is quite straightforward—to demonstrate ISRO’s ability to safely land on the Moon’s surface. If the mission succeeds, India will become a part of a small and special group of countries that have achieved a soft landing on the Moon. Currently, only the United States, the Soviet Union, and China have accomplished this feat.
