Chandrayaan 3 Landing

Chandrayaan 3 which is India’s most awaited lunar expedition is touching the Moon surface on 23 August 2023 at 6:04 pm IST with a speed of 1.68 km/s. Visit to watch the live stream at Chandrayaan 3 landing time and the latest update by ISRO.

Chandrayaan 3 Landing

Chandrayaan-3, India’s lunar mission on Moon south pole is attempting to make a soft landing on the moon’s south pole on 23 August 2023, and Chandrayaan 3 Landing Time is scheduled at 6:04 PM IST. ISRO said that things are going smoothly but if any glitch occurs they will postpone landing until 27 August 2023.

On August 23 at 6:04 p.m. IST, the Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft is scheduled to make a soft landing on the moon’s surface. The Moon mission was launched on July 14 at 2:35 p.m. However, the space agency has a backup plan and the landing would be moved to 27 August 2023 if the spacecraft is unable to make a landing.

The lander will attempt to touch down on the lunar surface from a height of 30 km on 23 August, traveling at a speed of 1.68 km/s. There are chances to slow down that speed because the Moon’s gravitational pull will also have an impact. Uncontrolled speed increases the likelihood of a crash landing.

Till now only three nations have accomplished this soft landing on the moon. India is becoming the 4th country that will be in this list of selected groups of the United States, the former Soviet Union, and most recently, China. Before landing on the Moon successfully, both the US and the USSR suffered multiple spacecraft accidents while with the Chang’e-3 mission in 2013, China stands out as the only nation to get success in its first attempt.

Chandrayaan 3 Soft Landing

On Wednesday, August 23, around 18.04 a.m., the lander module (LM), which consists of the lander Vikram and the rover Pragyan,  is anticipated to make contact with the lunar surface. Earlier, ISRO had predicted that the touchdown would occur on August 23 at 5:47 p.m.

The LM orbit has successfully been decreased to 25 km x 134 km thanks to the second and final deboosting (slowing down) operation. At the designated landing spot, the module would go through internal inspections before waiting for daylight. The powered descent is anticipated to start on August 23, 2023, at 1745 IST, according to a post made by ISRO early on Sunday morning on ‘X’ (previously Twitter).

According to ISRO, all schools and educational institutions in the country are encouraged to actively promote this event among students and faculty and to set up live streaming of the Chandrayaan-3 soft landing on campuses. Chandrayaan-3’s lander module successfully detached from the propulsion module on Thursday, 35 days after the mission’s July 14 launch.

After being launched on 14 July 2023, Chandrayaan-3 entered lunar orbit on August 5 and underwent orbit reduction maneuvers on August 6, 9, 14, and 16 before separating into its two modules on August 17 in preparation for the landing on August 23.

Chandrayaan 3 Livestream

On August 23, at 17:27 IST, the ISRO website, its YouTube channel, its Facebook page, and the DD National TV station will all carry live coverage of this long-awaited event. According to ISRO, “The soft landing of Chandrayaan-3 is a monumental moment that not only piques youths’ interest but also ignites a passion for exploration. Schools also have special orders to show students the landing at a scheduled time.

Chandrayaan 3 Moon Landing

According to ISRO sources, after the separation, the lander would go through “deboost” (the process of slowing down) operations to put it in an orbit where it would be at a distance of 30 kilometers when it is closest to the Moon (Perilune) and 100 kilometers when it is farthest from the Moon (Apolune).

The lander enters the powered braking phase and starts using its thrusters to descend to the Moon’s surface at about 30 km above the surface. The lander would scan the surface from a height of around 100 meters to look for any impediments before beginning its descent to a smooth touchdown.
