ISRO’s Chandrayaan-3 to land on moon’s surface at 6.04 pm; set to create a history
The Indian Space Research Organisation is geared up to accomplish the most difficult task of soft landing Vikram Lander module near the south pole of the Moon at 6.04 hours today evening as part of Chandrayaan 3 mission.
It has to decelerate the lander which is moving at the speed of around 6000 kms per hour. The lander equipment has to bear the assault of lunar dust and the lander has to change its position from horizontal to vertical angle. The scientists call this phase as 15 minutes of hell.
The lander has to overcome all these challenges before the touchdown. The Director of Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium in Bengaluru, Pramod G Galgali has spoken on the significance of the Moon mission undertaken by ISRO.
