Chandrayaan-3 is India's third lunar exploration mission, aiming to study the Moon's surface and its composition.
Unlike Chandrayaan-2, which included an orbiter, lander, and rover, Chandrayaan-3 focuses solely on a lander and rover.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) collaborated with Russia's Roscosmos for technical assistance in the lander's development.
The primary objective of Chandrayaan-3 is to achieve a successful soft landing on the lunar surface.
The lander will carry scientific payloads to analyze the lunar soil, terrain, and composition in greater detail.
Chandrayaan-3's lander design is modified based on lessons learned from the Chandrayaan-2 mission to enhance its chances of success.
The mission's target site for landing is near the Moon's south pole, an area rich in water ice deposits and scientific significance.
Chandrayaan-3 will be launched using a GSLV Mk III rocket, similar to the launch vehicle used for Chandrayaan-2.
The mission showcases ISRO's continued dedication to lunar exploration and advancement in space technology.
Chandrayaan-3 symbolizes India's commitment to space exploration and its efforts to contribute to global scientific knowledge.
