Know how Chandrayaan-3 will complete the journey of 3.84 lakh km till the moon in 40 days -aabtak24


Chandrayaan 3 Launch: Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is ready to write a new chapter of success. ISRO’s ambitious Moon mission project will be launched into space on Friday (July 14). It is to be launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota at 2.35 pm. After completing the journey of 40 days, the rover of Chandrayaan-3 will land on the South Pole of the Moon. Let us know how Chandrayaan-3 will complete its journey to the moon.

The distance of the Moon from the Earth is 3.84 lakh kilometers. The probable date for Chandrayaan-3 to reach the Moon is 23 August. That is, Chandrayaan-3 will take 40 days to complete the journey to the moon. The first target of this mission is the soft landing of the lander on the south pole of the Moon. This is also the most complicated part of the mission. The second target is to walk the rover on the surface of the moon and the third target is to uncover the secrets of the moon based on the information gathered from the rover.

Orbiter will not accompany

Through Chandrayaan-3, this target of ISRO will be fulfilled with the successful space travel of LVM3M4 rocket. This Bahubali rocket will take Chandrayaan-3 to space. Lander and Rover will be present with this. This time the orbiter is not being sent with Chandrayaan, because the orbiter sent with Chandrayaan-2 is still working there.

The speed of the rocket will be up to 36,968 km per hour

When the rocket booster will be launched at 2.35 pm, its initial speed will be 1627 km per hour. After 108 seconds of launch, its liquid engine will start at an altitude of 45 km and the speed of the rocket will be 6437 km per hour. On reaching a height of 62 km in the sky, both the boosters will be separated from the rocket and the speed of the rocket will reach 7 thousand km per hour.

After this, the heat shield protecting Chandrayaan-3 from the atmosphere will be separated at an altitude of about 92 km. At a distance of 115 km, its liquid engine will also be separated and the cryogenic engine will start working. The speed will be 16 thousand km / h. The cryogenic engine will take it to a distance of 179 km and its speed would have reached 36968 km/h. 

The journey from Earth to the Moon’s orbit

Cryogenic engine will install Chandrayaan-3 in the outer orbit of the Earth. After this its solar panels will open and Chandrayaan will start circling the earth. Gradually the moon will increase its orbit and will enter the orbit of the moon. The lander will be separated from the propulsion module after the moon reaches an orbit of 100 km and after that the lander will soft land on the moon.

After the lander is successfully landed, the rover will come out of it and will move on the surface of the moon. It is important to know here that the lander of Chandrayaan-2, the moon mission sent earlier, had lost its contact 2 km before the moon’s surface.
