Chandrayaan-3: All you need to Know about India’s mission to Moon


Team Udayavani, Sep 15, 2020, 12:22 PM IST

Chandrayaan-3, India’s mission to Moon, is likely to be launched in early 2021 instead of the second half of 2020 as suggested by the government.

However, unlike Chandrayaan-2,which included an orbiter, a lander and rover,Chandrayaan-3 will only have a lander and rover along with a  propulsion module

The cost of the upcoming Chandrayaan-3 mission will be approximately Rs 600 crore. The total cost of the Chandrayaan-2 mission was Rs 960 crore.

According to India.com, Planned to land on the South Pole of the Moon, Chandrayaan-2 was launched on July 22 last year. However, the lander Vikram hard-landed on September 7, crashing India’s dream to become the first nation to successfully touch down on the lunar surface in its maiden attempt.

If the Chandrayaan-3 is  successful, it would make India the fourth country to achieve a soft landing on the Moon and boost its credentials as a low cost space power

So far, only Russia, US and China have successfully put a mission on the Moon’s surface.

On the other hand, Isro Chief K Sivan also said that preparations for the Gaganyaan mission are going on simultaneously with the Chandrayaan-3 mission.

Gaganyaan is an Indian crewed orbital spacecraft that is intended to send 3 astronauts to space for a minimum of seven days by 2022, as part of the Indian Human Spaceflight Programme.
