Driven by strong determination and willpower, India attempts to work on a third mission and land its rover on the Southern pole of the moon with the help of Chandrayaan-3. It was launched into space on July 14, 2023, from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. The Mark-III ( LVM3) M4 rocket has been launched successfully, leaving the entire nation cheering for it.
The scientists of the Indian Space and Research Organization have planned to research the chemistry of lunar soil, its temperature, and the moon crates of the unexplored Southern Pole.
If India succeeds in its mission, India will become the first nation to land on the Southern Pole and the fourth country to execute a controlled landing on the moon successfully.
As of today (August 2, 2023 ), Chandrayaan-3 has crossed the fifth orbit of the Earth and is moving closer to its destination. It is assumed that it will enter the moon's orbit on August 5, 2023, and a successful landing followed by it on August 23, 2023.
