Chandrayaan -3 Grand Landing On The Moon : 

On August 23rd at 6:04 pm, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) announced that people interested in space exploration globally will have the opportunity to witness of the Grand Landing of Chandrayaan - 3 on The Moon's South Pole. India's Chandrayaan -3 is almost done with its month long journey from Earth.

 Chandrayaan -3

Chandrayaan – 3 is the third Moon Mission by India’s space agency ISRO. The goal of Chandrayaan – 3 is to place a Lander and Rover on the Lunar surface and operate them for roughly on lunar day or 14 Earth day. It consist of a Lander module (LM) named Vikram , a Propulsion module (PM) and Rover named Pragyan similar to Chandrayaan - 2 but does not have an orbiter. It was launched by the LVM3-M4 on July 14 at 2.35 pm. The integrated module was placed in an elliptical packing orbit (EPO) of size – 170 * 36500 km.
