New Delhi: A report published by ANI News said that ISRO is planning to launch the Chandrayan-3 in July. The news agency quoted ISRO Chairman S Somanath saying that he is very confident of the lunar mission.
He revealed the ISRO’s next mission while talking to media after the successful launch of GSLV and the subsequent placing of the NVS-01 into orbit.
Chandrayan-3 is a follow-on mission to the Chandrayan-2 to demonstrate end-to-end capability in safe landing and roving on the lunar surface, said the report.
Speaking to the news agency, S Somanath said, “The lesson is very simple. Learn from the past and do what is possible with your capacity. Failures may happen. There are a thousand reasons for a rocket to fail. Even today, this mission could have failed. But we have to do what is needed to be done.”
The report also added that according to ISRO the three objectives of Chandrayaan-3 are to demonstrate safe and soft landing on lunar surface, to demonstrate Rover roving on the moon and to conduct in-situ scientific experiments.
The Chandrayaan-3 will consist of Lander and Rover configuration and would be launched by LVM3 from Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota.
