New Delhi: Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has made another major achievement in its name. ISRO gave this information through a tweet. ISRO said that in another experiment, the propulsion module of Chandrayaan-3 has been brought from the lunar orbit to the Earth’s orbit, which is another achievement. ISRO says that this will make the process of returning back to Earth from the Moon easier and we are working for such missions in the future. ISRO is working for the upcoming missions, software for which is being prepared. Chandrayaan-3’s propulsion module has returned to Earth’s orbit after successfully completing its mission. This is a huge leap in India’s ability not only to launch new missions but also to recall them.

Historic landing on the moon on August 23

Regarding Vikram Lander, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said that the propulsion module of Chandrayaan-3 has now been taken back to the Earth’s orbit after orbiting the Moon. The primary objective of Chandrayaan-3 mission was to make a soft landing near the southern polar region of the Moon. Along with this, experiments were to be done using instruments on Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover. Let us tell you that this space mission was launched on 14 July 2023 on LVM3-M4 vehicle from SDSC, SHAR. On August 23, the Vikram lander made its historic landing on the Moon and the Pragyan rover was subsequently deployed.

Work being done on upcoming missions

ISRO said that the scientific instruments in the lander and rover were operated continuously till 1 lunar day as per the scheduled mission. The objectives of Chandrayaan-3 mission have been completely accomplished. Presently the propulsion module is orbiting the Earth and crossed an altitude of 1.54 lakh kilometers on November 22. ISRO said that the duration of the orbit is approximately 13 days. ISRO said that the experiment of bringing the propulsion module back to Earth from the lunar orbit will be beneficial for the upcoming mission plans. After this the mission will also include returning from the Moon to Earth. Currently the software for this module is being prepared. It is still in its initial stage.
