Yesterday, Chandrayaan-3 was launched from the space center of Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh at 2.35 pm on Friday. Chandrayaan-3 has left on its long journey of 3.84 lakh kilometers. It will take about 42 days to reach the moon. The LVM-3 rocket has left it at an altitude of 179 km. Now the further journey will be done by Chandrayaan-3 itself. Anytime between August 23-24, it will land near the Manzinus-U crater on the Moon’s south pole. LVM3-M4 rocket took Chandrayaan-3 up to 179 km. After that he pushed Chandrayaan-3 into space for onward journey. In this work, the rocket took only 16:15 minutes.

Difference between chandrayan-2 and Chandrayan-3

After the failure of Chandrayaan-2, ISRO has made some changes this time in Chandrayaan. Chandrayaan-3 will be launched with the Lander Hazard Detection and Avoidance Camera which will be used for coordination with the orbiter and mission control as the lander descends on the lunar surface, while Chandrayaan-2 had only one camera. While, Two cameras have been installed in Chandrayaan-3. There is a big difference between the two versions.This time the orbit in which Chandrayaan-3 has been launched by the LVM3 rocket is the 170X36,500 kilometer elliptical Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO). Last time Chandrayaan-2 was sent in an orbit of 45,575 km. This time this orbit has been chosen so that more stability can be provided to Chandrayaan-3.

Chandrayaan-3 will make 5 rounds of Earth and Moon

An ISRO scientist told on the condition of anonymity that the tracking and operation of Chandrayaan will be easier and easier through the 170X36,500 kilometer elliptical geosynchronous transfer orbit. Before sending it towards the Moon, Chandrayaan-3 will have to make at least five rounds around the Earth. Each round from the previous round will be bigger. This will be done by turning on the engine.

PM Modi Terms it India’s ‘New Chapter’

PM Modi said, “Chandrayaan-3 has started a glorious chapter in India’s space journey. “PM Modi said, “It is taking the dreams and ambitions of every individual of India to touch great heights.
