New Delhi: This morning, Chandrayaan-3 successfully completed its fifth and final manoeuvre in an orbit that is heading for the moon. Now, as planned, the spacecraft is rotating in a 153 km by 163 km orbit. According to an ISRO tweet, the Lander Module and Propulsion Module separation is scheduled for August 17, 2023. On August 23 at 5:47 p.m., the lander carrying the Rover will slowly soft land on the Moon’s surface near its south pole after disengaging from the Propulsion module. Chandrayaan 3’s mission goal is to show a safe and soft landing on the lunar surface, deploy the rover there, and conduct in-situ scientific experiments.
