Chandrayaan-3: ISRO Shares Moon’s Images from 70 km Altitude, Exudes Excitement

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has garnered worldwide attention with its ambitious Chandrayaan-3 mission, which is set to achieve a historic soft landing on the lunar surface on August 23. The journey of Chandrayaan-3 has been marked by meticulous planning, successful maneuvers, and the sheer determination of the ISRO team.

The Countdown Begins

The ISRO recently shared an exciting update on the Chandrayaan-3 mission, stating that it is progressing as planned. The space agency assured that the systems are undergoing regular checks, maintaining a smooth trajectory toward the anticipated soft landing. With the Mission Operations Complex (MOX) buzzing with energy and excitement, the stage is set for a momentous event in space history.

Capturing the Moon’s Beauty

One of the fascinating aspects of Chandrayaan-3 is its ability to capture stunning images of the moon. The Lander Position Detection Camera (LPDC) has been instrumental in this process. By taking images from an altitude of about 70 km, the LPDC assists the Lander Module in determining its precise position by matching the images against an onboard moon reference map. This technological feat showcases ISRO’s commitment to innovation and precision.

The Grand Telecast

Space enthusiasts and curious minds alike are in for a treat. The ISRO has announced that the landing operations of Chandrayaan-3 will be telecast live. Starting at 5:27 pm on August 23, viewers can witness this monumental event on various platforms. The live telecast can be accessed through ISRO’s official website, YouTube channel, and Facebook channel. It’s a chance for people around the world to witness history being made in real time.

A Timeline of Achievement

The journey of Chandrayaan-3 has been marked by several significant milestones:

  • July 6: The mission was announced, setting the stage for an exciting lunar exploration.
  • July 14: The spacecraft was launched successfully from Andhra Pradesh’s Sriharikota’s second launch pad.
  • July 22: A series of successful orbit-raising maneuvers positioned the spacecraft in different orbits, each step bringing it closer to its ultimate destination.
  • August 1: Chandrayaan-3 entered the translunar orbit, signaling a major milestone in its journey.
