Isro gives first glimpse of Chandrayaan-3 lunarcraft; mission launch due in August
NEW DELHI: Space agency Isro has shown the first glimpse of the country’s third lunar spacecraft Chandrayaan-3 in a documentary. Chandrayaan-3, which is in the assembly phase and is expected to be launched in August this year.
The photos of the moon mission were part of a documentary titled ‘Space on Wheels’ that Isro has posted on its website, which showcased 75 satellites launched by India as part of the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ celebrations.
这些照片是Isro网站上名为“车轮上的太空”的纪录片中展示的，该纪录片展示了印度发射的75颗卫星，这是“Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav”庆祝活动的一部分。
Isro chairman S Somnath has recently said that they are testing the propulsion sy em of the third lunar mission.
The Isro documentary appears to show the lander of Chandrayaan-3 that will make India’s second attempt on moon-landing. The video also shows the ongoing work on India’s first manned space mission Gaganyaan, Venus orbiter mission and Indo-US joint venture project NISAR mission.
Chandrayaan-3, which was earlier scheduled for launch in late 2020, was delayed due to the Covid pandemic. The lunarcraft is a lander-specific mission and won’t have any orbiter as the first orbiter of Chandrayaan-2 is working satisfactorily. Chandrayaan-3 mission is significant as it will test Isro’s second attempt for landing on Moon and will pave the way for interplanetary missions.
Earlier Chandrayaan-2’s mission, which was launched on July 22, 2019, was only partially successful as the lander had crash-landed. However, the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter has been circling around the Moon at around 100 km altitude from the lunar surface since August 20, 2019 and taking images of the lunar surface and sending key data related to the Moon.
All the best..

Wishing you all the best ISRO.
Hope they have kept place for potatoes
Its cher to pay China or NASA to help make and launch a lunar lander painted with India flag for Indians vanity pride. Flying with SpaceX tourism is also much cher and instant than trying to send Indianaults up to stratosphere using ISRO.

Bharat is Building
Another expensive Indian Diwali fireworks to pollute the moon.
While India ranked worst in hunger index, human index, IP thief, outdoor defecating, education, healthcare, aveIQ, Grapes, poverty, pollution, ...its spending billions to dump rubbish on moon for its vanity pride, and spend 3rd most in war mongering at $76Bils.
As long Russia Space has not make a successful lunar lander to sell India, ISRO will continue to dump rubbish onto moon calling them Chandrayaan-X. This is a country can't even make working rifle needs to license AK17.

We wish the mission a grand success!!
ISRO is our pride and this time also they have outperformed themselves with lunar craft; India is firmly in the world of space technology!
They have outperformed themselves? What kind of trash talk is this?
ISRO should take proper precaution so that the mission remains successful.
All the best for Chandrayan 3 and this should be successful as Isro is more comfortable now
ISRO and Indians should have learned: publicity kills. Don't try to have India's commander in chief preside at the landing again, don't invite any Bhutanese students to impress them, and don't brag as much as India did in 2019 with whole world watching in awe, and celebrate after a soft landing, not before.
