Chandrayaan-3 successfully enters lunar orbit

This achievement was proclaimed by ISRO's Satish Dhawan Space Centre located in Andhra Pradesh on July 14th.

The ISRO scientists have expressed hope that around August 23 or 24, the spacecraft will be able to land a rover named Vikram near the southern pole of the moon. If this mission is successful, India will start conducting research on the southern pole of the moon, an area about which very little is presently known, as the first nation in the world.

Only China, the Soviet Union, and the USSR have ever successfully landed a spacecraft on the moon.

On Saturday, it was reported by ISRO that when the distance between the moon and Chandrayaan-3 was at its minimum, the spacecraft successfully altered its trajectory. The task of reducing the spacecraft's distance in its orbit will commence on Sunday night after 11 PM.

Subsequently, scientists will gradually guide the spacecraft to a specific location from where the descent phase will begin. The Vikram lander will be released from the Chandrayaan-3 orbiter at a predetermined moment and will subsequently descend to the moon's surface to make contact.

Chandrayaan-3 will travel to the moon from Earth in a total of 40 days. Saturday marked the completion of the 22nd day of this journey.
