Ahead of the much-awaited soft landing of the country’s third moon mission -- Chandrayaan-3, former ISRO Chairman G Madhavan Nair said, “The last leg of its operation and everybody is anxiously looking forward to this great event. As far as the Indian space program is concerned, this is going to be the most significant milestone for planetary exploration. Of course, in the past, we have made an attempt to land on the lunar surface, but unfortunately, it did not succeed at the time. Since then, ISRO has done considerable studies and simulations and strengthened the designs and provided redundancies so that the mission success probability can be improved.”

Chandrayaan 3's live saga: Navigating the "20 minutes of anticipation" before lunar landing

  1. As the day of lunar landing arrives, the daunting "20 minutes of anticipation" or T-20 takes center stage, offering an edge-of-the-seat climax.
  2. Under the guidance of commands from Bengaluru, the Vikram lander will initiate its descent towards the lunar surface from an altitude of 25 km.
  3. In a powered descent, the Vikram lander will hurtle downwards at a velocity of 1.68 km per second, roughly equivalent to a staggering 6048 km per hour—nearly tenfold the speed of an average airplane.
  4. Following this, the Vikram lander will engage all its engines to decelerate, although it will remain in an almost horizontal position relative to the moon's surface. This crucial phase, known as the "rough braking phase," extends for approximately 11 minutes.
  5. Subsequent maneuvers will enable the Vikram lander to achieve a vertical orientation in relation to the moon's surface, marking the commencement of the intricate "fine braking phase."

Chandrayaan-3 Moon Landing HIGHLIGHTS: Today, India's Chandrayaan-3 is poised to achieve a significant milestone by attempting a lunar landing at the moon's south pole. If successful, this endeavour will position India as the fourth nation to accomplish the intricate feat of soft lunar landing, following the footsteps of the United States, China, and the former Soviet Union.

Critical to the mission's triumph, experts emphasize that the conclusive 15 to 20 minutes will determine the fate of the endeavour. During this pivotal period, Chandrayaan-3's Vikram lander, accompanied by the Pragyan rover, will undertake its delicate touchdown on the lunar surface.

The live coverage of this remarkable event will be accessible through various channels, including the ISRO website, its YouTube channel, Facebook, and the national broadcaster DD National TV, commencing from 5:27 PM.

Launched from India's primary spaceport in Andhra Pradesh on July 14, the Chandrayaan-3 mission marks a significant step in the nation's space exploration journey.
