Chandrayaan-3 launch in June next year: Confirmed By ISRO chairman S. Somanath

Chandrayaan 3 To Gaganyaan: All Upcoming ISRO Missions Of This Year

Chandrayaan-3 Launch: The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has shifted the Chandrayaan-3 mission from the third quarter of 2022 to June 2023. According to ISRO Chairman S Somnath, Chandrayaan-3 will be launched on Geosynchronous Launch Vehicle Mark-3.

Chandrayaan-3 will carry a more capable lunar rover to facilitate extraterrestrial exploration. By the end of 2024, ISRO hopes to conduct successful flight tests and abort the mission with the crew.

In September 2019, the Chandrayaan-2 mission’s Vikram lander crashed on the lunar surface, ending India’s first attempt to deploy a rover.

While ISRO is confident of launching the first Sun mission early next year, Chandrayaan-3 will wait until mid-2023.

Along with the more powerful Chandra rover, the Indian Space Research Organization plans to launch a third lunar mission, Chandrayaan-3, in June next year.

This move will help the company in future planetary exploration. Apart from setting a timeline for Chandrayaan-3, ISRO is also preparing for the first test flight of the ‘Gaganyaan abort mission, the country’s first manned spacecraft’, early next year.

ISRO plans to launch Chandrayaan-3, the third mission to the Moon, in June next year with the powerful Chandra rover, which is essential for future international exploration. The space agency has also planned the first test flight of the ‘abortion mission’ Gaganyaan, the country’s first manned spacecraft, early next year.

Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Chairman S Somnath told the media that Chandrayaan-3 (C-3) will be launched from Launch Vehicle Mark-3 (LVM3) in June next year. here

Somnath said the first abort mission is likely to be carried out under trans-sonic conditions where the spacecraft travels at the speed of sound after reaching an altitude of 10-15 km.
The second shows the survival of the crew when the spacecraft is traveling at twice the speed of sound and in “not so good” aerodynamic conditions.

As part of the abort mission, the astronauts must lower the crew from the launch vehicle using the rescue system, lower and assemble the capsule carrying the crew from the water.

“If it succeeds, we will do it again and we will go on an unmanned mission. An inactive mission will be a full rocket. It will go into orbit and come back,” said Somanath.
