New Delhi: Today marks a significant milestone for Chandrayaan-3 as its Vikram lander is scheduled to detach from the spacecraft’s propulsion module. The impending lunar touchdown of the lander and the accompanying rover, Pragyaan, is anticipated on August 23. Once they reach the lunar surface, Vikram lander is poised to capture images of the Pragyaan rover, which will subsequently deploy its scientific instruments to delve into the study of seismic activities on the Moon.
India’s ambitious lunar pursuit, Chandrayaan-3, achieved another triumph by successfully executing its fifth and final lunar-bound orbit maneuver. This achievement has brought the spacecraft closer to its ultimate goal of landing on the lunar surface.
Having concluded all planned lunar maneuvers, the spacecraft is now primed for a crucial phase: the detachment of the Vikram lander from the propulsion module.
