Bangalore, 2nd June 2023: All set for launch in the upcoming month, the Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft has arrived at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. It includes Lander and Rover configurations.

Following the final payloads assembly at the U.R Rao Satellite Centre in Bengaluru, the spacecraft for India’s third lunar mission is geared for an exciting and much awaited launch.

When the rover is deployed, it will be able to do in-situ chemical analysis of the lunar surface as it is moving. The lander will have the ability to soft land in a designated lunar location.

Chandrayaan-3 is a follow-up mission to Chandrayaan-2 and aims to show that it is completely capable of safely landing and roving on the moon.

Mr. Sankaran (U.R. Satellite Centre Director) claimed that ISRO has investigated numerous facets of what transpired with Chandrayaan-2 and that all necessary steps have been taken to guarantee the success of the forthcoming mission.

He also stated that ISRO has gained a lot of knowledge through the post-flight analysis of Chandrayaan-2.

The head of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), S Somanath, concurred with this assessment and ended his interview with ANI on a positive one. Mr. Sommanth added that he is sure about the spacecraft’s launch because ISRO was carefully guided in the modelling of a sturdy spacecraft by the inadequacies and failures of the Chaandryaan-2.
