What is the purpose of ISRO’s Mission Moon? Chandrayaan-3 will bring the moon in India’s grasp -aabtak24


Chandrayaan 3: India’s third moon mission i.e. Chandrayaan 3 is going to be launched on Friday (July 14). Chandrayaan 3 will be launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota at 2.35 pm on Friday afternoon. After about 42 to 50 days, Chandrayaan 3 will land on the south pole of the moon. Simply put, the countdown for Chandrayaan 3 under Mission Moon has begun. 

Chandrayaan 3 is very important for the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). In fact, during the last phase of the ‘Chandrayaan-2’ mission in 2019, the ‘soft landing’ could not take place due to the path deviation of the lander ‘Vikram’. Due to this, the lander and rover crashed on the surface of the moon. In this situation, what is the purpose of ISRO under Mission Moon, let us know…

What is the purpose of Mission Moon?
ISRO’s ambitious Chandrayaan 3 project will be carried out by the LVM3M4 rocket, also known as GSLVMK3. This rocket is also called ‘Fat Boy’ in ISRO. Actually, this rocket has been named because of its ability to carry heavy equipment. 

ISRO has named the lander of Chandrayaan 3 as Vikram and the rover as Pragyan, just like Chandrayaan 2. After the launch of Chandrayaan 3, ISRO’s first objective will be to make a safe and soft landing of the lander on the lunar surface. So that it can be established that India is also ready to send its missions to other planets.

Rover will scientifically test the lunar surface
After the soft landing of the lander on the lunar surface, the ‘Pragyan’ rover will come out from inside ‘Vikram’. This six-wheeled robot has been made by ISRO scientists to test the lunar surface. During this, Lander Vikram and Rover Pragyan will be connected to each other. 

In simple words, as the rover goes on testing the lunar surface, it will send all its information to the lander Vikram. At the same time, the lander will transmit this information to the Vikram propulsion module and from there this information will reach ISRO. 
If India has not been able to succeed in the moon mission so far, then it will face the challenge of running the rover on the lunar surface. .

If the soft landing of the lander is done and scientific test information is received from the rover, then India will become the fourth country after America, Russia and China to do so.
