Chandrayaan to Enter Lunar Orbit Today, 3 Inches Closer to the Moon

<p>Since its launch on July 14, the Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft has traveled roughly two-thirds of the distance to the Moon. It will join the Moon’s orbit today at 7 PM, according to the national space agency, which has its Bengaluru headquarters.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-113526″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-08-05t175446.807.jpg” alt=”” width=”1386″ height=”776″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-08-05t175446.807.jpg 300w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-08-05t175446.807-150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1386px) 100vw, 1386px” /></p>
<p>According to prior statements from ISRO, the maneuver would be carried out when Chandrayaan-3 is at its perilune, or closest point to the Moon. The Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft has been moved by ISRO over five times in the three weeks after its launch, placing it in orbits that are becoming further and farther from Earth. Then, on August 1, the ship was successfully launched from Earth’s orbit toward the Moon in a crucial maneuver known as a slingshot.</p>
<p>The Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft left its orbit above the Earth after its trans-lunar injection and started traveling in a direction that would bring it close to the moon.</p>
<p>The space agency had previously said that the third lunar mission from India was in good health and that a gentle landing on the moon’s surface will be attempted on August 23. The lander, rover, and propulsion module aboard Chandrayaan-3 are all in working order. It is around 3,900 kilos in weight. The onboard scientific equipment will investigate the Moon’s surface.</p>
<p>When Chandrayaan 3 enters the moon’s orbit, what will happen?</p>
<p>The spacecraft will be inserted into an orbit around the moon as part of the Lunar Orbit Insertion (LOI), a maneuver that will be carried out from the ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) in Bengaluru.</p>
<p>After the spacecraft enters lunar orbit, a further set of maneuvers will cause it to separate from the Propulsion Module in preparation for its fall to the Moon’s South Pole.</p>
