From Earth to the Moon: India’s Moon Mission Rocket’s Incredible Journey

India’s Chandian 3 spacecraft has launched a historic mission to the moon, entering Earth’s orbit shortly after its second attempt at a lunar landing. If successful, the craft will deploy a Rover near the moon’s South Pole next month, making India the fourth country behind the US, the Soviet Union, and China to manage a controlled lunar landing. The mission is expected to reach the moon on August 23rd or 24th, and India hopes to become the fourth nation to have a successful soft landing on the Moon’s surface.

The Chandian program, which discovered water at the South Pole of the Moon and concretely discovered water on the moon, has made amazing progress using very little money. They are using smaller craft, such as the Chandian Rover, which is about a meter long and has a lower mass, making it cheaper and more specific. The Rover is expected to be working for one lunar day, and the mission is scheduled to arrive at the start of a lunar day.

The mission’s scientific objectives include lunar geochemistry, the presence of water ice, understanding the lunar surface, and the impact of the solar wind. The mission’s scientific objectives include understanding lunar geochemistry, the presence of water ice, and the impact of the solar wind on the moon’s atmosphere. The mission’s success will be a testament to India’s ability to do extraordinary missions and science on a low budget, showcasing that you don’t need to spend all of this money to do amazing exploration in space.
