ISRO’s Proudest Feat - A World’s First

Chandrayaan-3, India's third lunar mission, was successfully launched from Sriharikota on July 14, 2023, and is poised to create history. The project will seek to land a rover on the southern pole of the moon, a location of significant geopolitical and scientific importance for both India and the rest of the globe. The rover will undertake tests to investigate the lunar surface's geology, chemistry, temperature, and seismic activity.

The mission will also test new technologies including the Spectro-polarimetry of Habitable Planet Earth (SHAPE), laser altimeter, laser doppler velocimeter, and laser retroreflector array. A technical issue prevented Chandrayaan-2 from successfully landing on the Moon in 2019, hence Chandrayaan-3 is a follow-up mission. However, India did not give up on its space ambitions and decided to launch Chandrayaan-3 with improved design and performance.

Chandrayaan-3 is not just a scientific mission, but also a symbol of India’s resilience and determination to achieve its space goals.In addition to being a scientific mission, Chandrayaan-3 is a representation of India's tenacity and commitment to achieving its space objectives. This mission's success is also a tribute to India's co-operation and partnership with other space organisations, including NASA, ESA, JAXA, and ROSCOSMOS.

Chandrayaan-3, India's lunar exploration mission, will show off the country's technological capability and scientific interest. The moon is a possible source of materials and information for future space exploration. By showcasing crucial technologies like soft landing, rover mobility, and communication, Chandrayaan-3 will also pave the path for future human missions to the Moon.

Chandrayaan-3 is an important mission for India as it will contribute to the global understanding of the Moon’s origin, evolution and environment, especially its polar regions, which are largely unexplored by previous missions. Chandrayaan-3 is not just a mission for India, but for humanity as a whole. I believe that Chandrayaan-3 will be a success and inspire millions of Indians and people around the world to pursue their dreams and aspirations in space.
