The Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) Chandrayaan-3 moon mission is now preparing to land. If all goes well, the Vikram Lander will make a soft lunar landing at 6.04 pm.
Ahead of the launch, ISRO said it is ready to initiate the mission’s automatic landing sequence which is scheduled at 5.44 pm.
ISRO’s ambitious Chandrayaan 3’s Lander Module (LM) is all set to touch down the lunar surface, said PTI.
Chandrayaan-3 was launched on July 14. Before India, only the United States, Russia and China have achieved a soft-landing on the surface of the Earth’s only natural satellite. If successful, India will also become the first nation to reach the celestial body’s South Pole.
