Isro insert Chandrayaan-3 in orbit around moon shortly

Chandrayaan-3: India’s third moon mission has successfully reached to the next stage, with the spacecraft achieving Lunar Orbit Insertion (LOI). During the next phase, ISRO will try a soft landing on August 23.The Mission Operations Complex (MOX), ISTRAC, Bengaluru, was in command of a retro-burning at the Perilune.

What is Lunar Orbit Injection (LOI)?

The Lunar Orbit Injection (LOI) manoeuvre is crucial in space missions because it sends a spacecraft from its current orbit around the Earth to a new orbit around the Moon. It entails igniting the spacecraft’s engines at a specified moment in its voyage in order to gain velocity and shift course, allowing it to be captured by the Moon’s gravitational pull and enter its orbit.

The LOI manoeuvre is a precise and carefully calculated manoeuvre that marks a crucial step in lunar missions by positioning the spacecraft for future landing operations.

The following lunar bound orbit manoeuvre:

The next Lunar bound orbit manoeuvre is slated for tomorrow (August 6, 2023) at roughly 23:00 hours IST, according to the Indian space agency. The spacecraft’s health is constantly monitored from the Mission Operations Complex (MOX) at the ISRO Telemetry, Tracking, and Command Network (ISTRAC) in Bengaluru. According to ISRO, all of Chandrayaan-3’s systems are functional.
