PM Congratulates ISRO For Chandrayaan-3 Experiment

Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended congratulations to the Indian Space and Research Organisation (ISRO) for a notable achievement in space exploration. The Chandrayaan-3 mission witnessed a groundbreaking development as its Propulsion Module successfully navigated from a lunar orbit to Earth's orbit, showcasing a unique experiment in space technology.

ISRO shared details of the accomplishment, revealing that the Propulsion Module underwent a detour, transitioning from its original lunar orbit to an orbit around Earth. This maneuver involved a strategic orbit-raising and Trans-Earth injection, effectively placing the Propulsion Module in an Earth-bound orbit.

In a post on social media platform X, Prime Minister Modi lauded ISRO's achievement, stating, "Congratulations @isro. Another technology milestone achieved in our future space endeavors includes our goal to send an Indian to the Moon by 2040."

The Chandrayaan-3 mission initially aimed to demonstrate a soft landing near the lunar south polar region and conduct experiments utilizing the instruments on the Vikram and Pragyaan components. Launched on July 14, 2023, via an LVM3-M4 vehicle from SDSC, SHAR, the spacecraft achieved a historic touchdown on the Moon on August 23. Subsequently, the Pragyan rover was deployed, and scientific instruments on both the Lander and Rover operated continuously for one lunar day, meeting the mission's defined objectives.
