Chandrayaan 3 Landing on Moon, A hope: India Ignites Countdown for 2023

Get ready for an epic lunar journey as Chandrayaan 3 landing on the Moon. Join the countdown to this historic event.

The countdown has begun for India’s third lunar mission, Chandrayaan 3. The launch is scheduled for Friday, July 14, at 2:35 pm IST from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.

India is poised to make history with its Chandrayaan 3 mission, which will attempt to soft-land a lander and rover on the surface of the moon. If successful, India would become only the fourth country to achieve such a feat, after the United States, China, and the former Soviet Union.

It is a dogged Attempt to Soft Land on the Moon. The Chandrayaan 3 mission is a dogged attempt by India to soft-land on the moon after the Chandrayaan 2 mission successfully orbited the moon in 2019 but failed to soft-land on the surface due to a technical glitch.

The Chandrayaan 3 mission will carry a number of scientific instruments, including a camera to study the lunar surface, a spectrometer to analyze the chemical composition of the moon, and a magnetometer to measure the lunar magnetic field.

The mission is also expected to help scientists better understand the formation and evolution of the moon.
