Chandrayaan-3: India's Spacecraft Journeying Towards the Moon


The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has successfully positioned Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft in the lunar orbit on Tuesday. 

"Chandrayaan-3 completes its orbit around Earth and is now progressing towards the Moon. The National Space Agency headquarters stated that a successful perigee firing was conducted at ISTRAC, and ISRO has placed the spacecraft in the translunar trajectory." 

It was mentioned, "The next phase: the Moon. Once it reaches the Moon, the Lunar Orbit Insertion (LOI) is planned for August 5, 2023." 

An ISRO official was quoted as saying in a PTI report that Chandrayaan-3 successfully left Earth's orbit and is now on a track that will bring it closer to the Moon after the Trans-Lunar Injection (TLI) next Tuesday. 

After the TLI manoeuvre on Tuesday, the spacecraft began its voyage towards the Moon, leaving Earth's orbit in its wake, and was put on the "lunar transfer trajectory." 

On August 23, ISRO had stated that it intended to execute a soft touchdown of the lander on the lunar surface. 

Prior to this, the spacecraft's orbit was boosted over five phases following its launch on July 14 as part of the Chandrayaan-3 mission. 

The mission's goals are to enter lunar orbit, accomplish a soft landing utilising the lander on the lunar surface, and deploy a rover from the lander to carry out various research on the Moon's surface based on Chandrayaan-2's successes. 

During the Semi-ConIndia Conference 2023 on July 30, Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar reaffirmed that bilateral cooperation is growing to embrace new efforts in a number of industries. 

EAM S. Jaishankar said in an ANI report that "This cooperation has now expanded to more fields and may be expected to increase gradually in the future. For instance, we saw it in space, where India has enhanced the strong NASA-ISRO cooperation by signing the Artemis Accords, which is a portent of things to come.
