Mission Moon on Track! Countdown to Touchdown Begins, All Latest Here


Chandrayaan-3 LIVE Updates: At about 6:04 today, August 23, the Vikram lander from the Chandrayaan-3 lunar mission of the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) will attempt a touchdown on the south polar area of the Moon. The final 15 minutes of the mission are essential because this is when the lander changes from a fast horizontal drop to a leisurely vertical descent into the lunar surface. Isro declared that the “mission is on schedule” and released pictures of the Moon’s far side that were taken by the lander.

Critiques of Uttar Pradesh’s Moon Landing School Broadcast Plan

The Uttar Pradesh government’s intention to open schools in the evening to broadcast Chandrayaan-3’s Moon landing has been met with criticism from the teachers’ union. Dr. Dinesh Chandra Sharma, president of the Uttar Pradesh Secondary Teachers Federation, and convener Suresh Kumar Tripathi emphasised the lack of necessary equipment in schools in a letter to the director general of school education and the director of secondary education. According to the letter, live telecasts cannot be shown because there is no provision for televisions, dishes, projectors, or cellphones. The letter also highlighted the challenge of keeping kids in school from 8 in the morning to 5 in the evening.

Chandrayaan-3’s Journey to Redemption

Nearly four years have passed since Chandrayaan-2, India’s most recent moon landing attempt, crashed. Surendra Pal, a former director of the space agency, professed optimism about the success of the project as Isro prepared to land Chandrayaan-3 on the lunar surface today evening. “I am confident just like the ISRO scientists that we will do much better because a lot of changes have been done in comparison to Chandrayaan 2…A lot of algorithms have been changed…Absolute calibration is done. The Lander has the capacity to hover. The landing area has been increased from 2.5 km to 4 km,” Pal told news agency ANI.
