Chandrayaan 3 launch scheduled for August 2022: Union Minister Jitendra Singh



Chandrayaan 3 Launch Date: The much-awaited Chandrayaan 3 mission is method for begin in August 2022, details Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology, Dr. Jitendra Singh, in a written to the Lok Sabha on February 2, 2022.

The Union Minister said that the realization of the Chandrayaan 3 mission is in progress, based on the learnings from Chandrayaan-2 and advice made by the national level experts. Many related hardware and their special tests have been total successfully and the begin is scheduled for August 2022.

A successful soft landing on the Moon will be make India the fourth country to do so and first to do so near the lunar South Pole. India's Chandrayaan 2 mission had once crashed at what is now called the Jawahar point on the moon.

Chandrayaan 3 Mission


The Chandrayaan 3 mission is the third planned lunar exploration mission by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). It follows ISRO's Chandrayaan 2 mission, which though successfully plant its orbiter around the Moon but failed to soft-land its lander and plant its rover behind a last-minute glitch in soft landing guidance software.

Similar to Chandrayaan 2 mission, Chandrayaan-3 will be as well as involve a modified lander and rover. The mission will be not involve an orbiter, due to the success of the Chandrayaan 2 orbiter. It will be use the Chandrayaan 2 orbiter to communicate with the earth.

The rocket that will be begin the Chandrayaan 2 spacecraft has been declared ready and it awaits launch day.

The Chandrayaan 3 mission was method to begin in 2020 itself but it got delayed due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many of ISRO's missions were pushed back due to the pandemic. ISRO conducted just two routine launches last year, out of and that one aboard the GSLV rocket failed as the last stage of the wheels did not ignite due to loss of pressure.

The space agency plans to make up for the time lost with an extremely busy year ahead with at least 8 begin planned this year.

Chandrayaan 2 mission


Chandrayaan 2 mission's lander module, Vikram lander was method to make a historic moon landing on September 7, 2019. A successful landing would have made India the first nation to make a soft landing near the Moon's South Pole.

While Vikram Lander had successfully begun its powered descent and the entire mission seemed to be progressing as planned, just a few seconds before touchdown, ISRO's Mission Control Centre lost contact with the Vikram Lander.

ISRO released a formal statement saying that Vikram Lander’s descent was just as it had been planned and normal performance was observed till it reached an altitude of 2.1 km, behind and that they lost contact with the lander. It was locate later with the support of NASA orbiter that Vikram lander had crash-landed on the lunar surface.

The Chandrayaan 2 orbiter was between deployed properly and will be evidently carry to function for at least seven years.
ISRO's attempt and Chandrayaan 2 mission success between collected immense praise from world leaders and foreign space agencies involve NASA.
just three countries have managed to successfully land missions on the Moon involve the Soviet Union, United States and China.
