Today is historic for the whole country, India’s Chandrayaan has landed on the South pole of the Moon..

ISRO’s mission made history by becoming the first to reach the Moon’s South Pole. It is one of only three countries in history to have successfully landed on the moon. A photograph of Chandrayaan 3 on the moon with the ISRO logo and mission name.

Chandrayaan-3 Moon Landing Live Update: After a 40-day journey from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Chandrayaan-3 has successfully landed. The Vikram lander made a soft landing on the moon at 6:04 p.m. (IST) on August 23. ISRO lifted the automatic landing system at 5:44 pm (IST). The Vikram lander is now attempting a soft landing on the Moon using onboard computers and logic. Although ISTRAC’s information officers are keeping a close eye on this, the vehicle’s system will raise the bar all the way. The Chandrayaan 3 mission is a follow-up to the Chandrayaan 2 mission in 2019, when the Vikram lander landed on the moon. The main purpose of this message is simple. Demonstrate the ability of the space agency to make a soft landing on the moon. With this news, India joins a small club of countries who have had a slow and successful month. Currently, the club has three members: the United States, the Soviet Union and China. .

What happened during the last phase of Changlayan 3 mission?

These are the four phases that occurred during “His Fifteen Minutes of Fear” at the end of the mission, before Chandrayaan 3 made a successful soft landing on the Moon.

Hard Braking Phase: During this phase, the lander’s horizontal speed is reduced from approximately 6,000 kilometers per hour to almost zero and gentle braking is applied.
Attitude Hold Phase: At an altitude of approximately 7.43 kilometers above the lunar surface, the lander tilted from a horizontal to a vertical position and traveled a distance of 3.48 kilometers.

Slight braking phase: This lasts about 175 seconds. During this time, the lander travels approximately 28.52 kilometers horizontally to the landing site and loses altitude by approximately 1 kilometer. Chandrayaan 2 lost control during the stance-holding and micro-braking phases.
Final descent: This is the final stage of the full vertical lander’s planned descent to the lunar surface.
Need to assess lander condition, rover will come out

“The most difficult part was launching the moon, landing, capturing, launching the lander for descent and finally landing. The health of the lander was assessed and the rover landed within hours. We will depart from the ship,” said ISRO President S. Somanas.

Landing speed slower than expected: ISRO Boss
ISRO President Somnath said the landing speed was below the target speed of 2 meters per second, and that future missions hold great promise. The next 14 days of experiments by the instruments on the lander and rover will be exciting, he added.
Devdutt Pattanaik writes about Indian myths surrounding the Moon
“There are many myths, stories and legends about the celestial body that are a part of our cultural truth, our Indian-ness. Devdutt Pattanaik draws Shiva and the moon, and retells some of them,” writes Devdutt Pattanaik in an opinion piece for The Indian Express.

“Historical, once in a lifetime moment like these while uniting our country also paves the way for an increased scientific temper amongst the youth of India, an accelerated pathway for self-reliance in emerging sectors & technologies, and, instilling the confidence to be amongst the Top 3 economies of the world. A classic lesson on focused perseverance, economic innovation and sovereignty in new and emerging tech, today’s event will propel India’s space economy to the next orbit,” said Sreeram Ananthasayanam, Partner, Deloitte India, in a statement to the press. “We commend ISRO for the successful landing of Chandrayaan 3 which demonstrates India’s strong space exploration spirit and capabilities in the space sector. The successful landing demonstrates the potential of India’s space sector. , making India one of the few countries in the world to achieve this feat.It also bodes exciting opportunities for private players.Indian Space Association Secretary General AK Bhatt said, “This is the moon. “It not only helps the development of the space economy, but also signals a big change.”

“This means that these lunar landings will create a thriving lunar economy and also advance our efforts to facilitate larger-scale astronomical exploration from Mars and beyond.” “A key step forward in space exploration and commercialization is to involve more private companies and growing space technology start-ups in the future mission of making India a leader in the global space economy,” he said. added.
