Read Time:1 Minute, 2 Second

The LVM3 rocket’s three stages performed exceptionally well, continuing its perfect record of 100% launch success. As a result, Chandrayaan-3 is now en route to the Moon.

In a textbook launch by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Chandrayaan-3 was sent on a journey to the Moon.

The LVM-3 mission, with each of its three stages performing nominally, was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, continuing its record of 100% launch success.

Following the successful launch, the spacecraft carrying the Chandrayaan-3 mission was deployed into space after 900 seconds.

In the coming days, ISRO will perform orbit-raising maneuvers to put the spacecraft on its path to the Moon.

Chandrayaan-3, India’s third lunar mission, is set to arrive in lunar orbit on August 5, with the soft-landing attempt expected by the end of the month.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will begin decreasing the spacecraft’s orbit and reducing its altitude above the Moon, employing a technique known as Lunar Orbit Insertion (LOI), to capture it using the Moon’s gravity.

Following this, ISRO will initiate the dangerous landing sequence, with the soft-landing scheduled for August 23.
