Chandrayaan-3, India’s third lunar exploration mission developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), has made significant progress in its quest to further our understanding of the moon. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has been diligently working towards the successful execution of this ambitious mission.

ISRO has been actively working on the design and development of Chandrayaan-3. The mission is expected to feature an upgraded version of the lander and rover, building upon the technology and learnings from the previous Chandrayaan missions.

The mission’s total weight is 3,900 kg: 

  • Propulsion module: 2,148 kg
  • Lander and rover: 1,752 kg each

Chandrayaan-3 landed near the Moon’s south pole on August 23, 2023. India is the only country to reach this part of the Moon. Now the mission is 100% successful from start to end.

Key Objectives of Chandrayaan-3

The primary objective of Chandrayaan-3 is to land a rover on the lunar surface and conduct detailed scientific experiments. The mission aims to study the moon’s geology, and mineralogy, and search for water ice deposits.
