India’s third moon mission, Chandrayaan-3, is a follow-up to Chandrayaan-2 and aims to show that it is possible to land and rove safely on the moon.

Chandrayaan-3 is made up of a rover, a propulsion module, and an indigenous lander module. Its goal is to develop and demonstrate new technologies needed for interplanetary missions.

The lander may deploy the rover, which will conduct in-situ chemical study of the lunar surface while it is moving, and soft land at a specific location on the moon, as stated by ISRO. To conduct experiments on the lunar surface, the Lander and Rover both include scientific payloads.

Similar to Chandrayaan-2, India’s last lunar mission, the orbital lifting will happen following the mid-July launch. Before landing on the moon, the lander and orbiter will orbit the moon.

Mr. Somanath had previously stated that ISRO had strengthened the lander and added more fuel in addition to new machinery. Chandrayaan-3 will follow the same trajectory as Chandrayaan-2 and touchdown in the same location.
