Chandrayaan 3 Mission carries on with In- situ scientific experiments on the Lunar surface

ISRO i.e Indian Space Research Organisation on August 26th informed that two of their major three Chandrayaan-3 mission objectives have been achieved and the third which is the in-situ scientific experiments — is under the process to reach its goal. The national space agency headquartered here also said almost all the important components of Chandrayaan-3 mission are performing normally.

“Chandrayaan-3 Mission: Of the 3 mission objectives, demonstration of a safe and soft landing on the lunar surface is accomplished. Demonstration of Rover roving on the moon is accomplished. Conducting in-situ scientific experiments is underway. All payloads are performing normally,” ISRO said on X’, previously called Twitter. India on August 23 marked a historic moment as ISRO’s ambitious third Moon mission Chandrayaan-3’s Lander Module (LM) touched down on the lunar surface, making it only the fourth country to accomplish this great achievement and the absolute first to reach the uncharted south pole of the Earth’s one and only natural satellite. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on August 26th took an integral decision to name the spot where Chandrayaan-3 Vikram lander made soft landing as “Shiv Shakti Point” and the site where the Chandrayaan-2 lander crash-landed on the Moon’s surface in 2019 will be remembered as “Tiranga Point”.


August 23rd, the date when the Chandrayaan-3 lander touched down on the lunar surface, would be hailed nationwide as the National Space Day.
