The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) successfully launched the Chandrayaan-3 mission on July 13, 2023 at 9:00 UT (2:30 p.m. India standard time). The mission is a follow-on to the Chandrayaan-2 mission, which made India the first country in the world to soft-land a spacecraft on the lunar surface.
Chandrayaan-3 is carrying a lander and a rover to the lunar surface. The lander will soft-land on the surface of the Moon, and the rover will then deploy to explore the lunar surface. The mission's primary goal is to collect data about the lunar surface and to conduct experiments to study the Moon's geology and evolution.
The successful launch of Chandrayaan-3 is a major achievement for ISRO and for India. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the ISRO team, and it is a reminder of India's growing capabilities in the field of space exploration.
Congratulations ISRO on the successful launch of Chandrayaan-3! We are proud of your achievements, and we look forward to seeing what you do next.
