Chandrayaan 3: India’s Journey Back to the Moon
Chandrayaan-3, the third lunar exploration mission by ISRO, aims to rectify the challenges faced during Chandrayaan-2 and achieve a successful soft landing on the Moon. The mission includes a lander, rover, and orbiter to conduct scientific investigations and study the lunar surface composition and geology. Chandrayaan-3 showcases India’s commitment to space exploration and scientific advancements. It represents a significant step in India’s space journey and contributes to global lunar research efforts. The launch date for Chandrayaan-3 is yet to be announced.

Indian Space Research Organisation for Chandrayaan 3
S. Somnath, the chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), said on Monday that Chandrayaan 3’s launch date for a gentle landing on the moon is July 13.
We’ll be able to land gently on the moon. The date of Chandrayaan 3’s launch is July 13, although it may extend to July 19. ISRO Chairman S. Somnath made this statement.
He said that the launch would occur on July 13. It might, however, extend until July 19.
Earlier on June 28, S. Somanath, the chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation, declared that Chandrayaan 3 testing is over and that the launch window is intended between July 12 and 19.
The Chandrayaan 3 spacecraft is currently completely integrated. Both the testing and the mating with the rocket compartment have been finished. The current window of possibility for launch is from July 12 to July 19, and we will choose the earliest date, either the 12th, 13th, or 14th. After all of the testing are finished, we will reveal the precise date.
He also provided an update on the Aditya-L1 Mission, India’s first mission to study the Sun, earlier in June and stated that ISRO is aiming for the end of August as the objective for its launch.
Indian industries with the US businesses with Chandrayaan 3.
The head of ISRO also discussed his thoughts on the Artemis Accords, saying that he sees it as a chance for Indian businesses engaged in the space industry to collaborate with US businesses.
The Artemis Accord is being viewed by us as a political engagement with the US. When the US proposes cooperative effort in the space sector, notably the exploration of distant planets in a very cordial atmosphere amongst different nations, it is a declaration of intent that we support that. Thus, it makes a strong statement. Particularly when it comes to advanced technology, such as space, we would prefer to collaborate with the US. It will provide chances for Indian businesses engaged in the space industry to collaborate with USA.
ISRO has set three main objectives for the Chandrayaan-3 mission, which includes:
- Getting a lander safe and soft landing on the surface of the Moon.
- Observing and demonstrating the rover’s loitering capabilities on the Moon
- In-site scientific observation making scientific experiments on the chemical and natural elements, soil, water, etc. available on the surface of the Moon to better understand and practice the composition of the Moon. Interplanetary refers to the development and demonstration of new technologies required for missions between two planets.
