Chandrayaan-3's Next Stop Moon



On August 1, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) executed the TransLunar Injection (TLI) maneuver, propelling Chandrayaan-3 on its trajectory towards the moon.

 

The successful TLI was carried out from the ISRO Telemetry, Tracking, and Command Network (ISTRAC) situated in Bengaluru. The scheduled time for the TransLunar Injection (TLI) was between midnight and 1 am IST on August 1.

 

The space agency tweeted "Chandrayaan-3 completes its orbits around the Earth and heads towards the Moon.

 

A successful perigee-firing performed at ISTRAC, ISRO has injected the spacecraft into the translunar orbit.


The successful TransLunar Injection ensures the next stop of Chandrayaan-3 to be the Moon.

Chandrayaan-3 is anticipated to enter the lunar orbit on August 5, and subsequently, the spacecraft's liquid engine will be activated once more to place it into the designated lunar orbit.

Following this step, there will be four orbital maneuvers to position the spacecraft in its ultimate orbit approximately 100 km away from the Moon's surface.

 

Chandrayaan-3 comprises a Lander module (LM), Propulsion module (PM), and a Rover. On August 17, the separation between the PM and LM will occur. A sequence of deboost maneuvers is also planned prior to the power descent phase for the soft landing on the Moon. The anticipated landing time for the lander on the lunar surface is 5.47 p.m. on August 23.
