India is now only few hours away from making history. Its third lunar mission, Chandrayaan-3, is all set to make a soft and successful landing on the south polar region of the Moon around 6.04pm today, August 23. In case of ‘unfavourable conditions’ an ISRO scientist said the landing may be postponed to August 27. However, he affirmed that the lander should not face any problems today.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is set to make history today, as its third Moon mission, Chandrayaan-3’s, Lander Module (LM) attempts to land on the lunar surface at approximately 18.04 hours IST. It will all come down to the final 15 minutes, when the lander carries out a critical technical manoeuvre, transferring its high-speed horizontal position to a vertical one — in order to facilitate a gentle descent on to the surface.
