India is preparing to take a major leap into space with the Chandrayaan-3 Mission, which will attempt a soft landing on the Moon on Wednesday (August 23). After the United States, Russia, and China, India will be the fourth country in the world to accomplish this accomplishment, but it will be the only country in the world to land on the lunar south pole.
This would be India’s second lunar landing attempt, but if anything goes wrong or an issue with the lander module arises, the landing will be postponed till August 27, according to the Space Applications Centre-ISRO on Monday.
The choice to land would be made based on the health of the lander module and the conditions on the Moon, according to Nilesh M Desai, head of Space Applications Centre-ISRO, Ahmedabad.
According to PTI, Director Desai stated, “On August 23, two hours before Chandrayaan-3 lands on the Moon, we will decide whether or not it is appropriate to land at that time based on the health of the lander module and the conditions on the Moon.”
“If any of the factors appear to be unfavorable, we will land the module on the Moon on August 27.” “There should be no problems, and we should be able to land the module on August 23,” Desai added.
