How Chandrayaan- 3 will Land on Moon: Chandrayaan-3 is all set to make a soft landing on the Moon on Wednesday. According to the experts of space science, its success is just a game of last few minutes. Everything hangs in the balance in these few minutes, which is enough to hold anyone’s breath.
ISRO’s Chandrayaan-3 is all set to make a soft landing on the Moon on Wednesday. But according to the experts of space science, its success is only a game of last few minutes. Everything hangs in the balance in these few minutes, which is enough to hold anyone’s breath. At this point, the spacecraft has to go through a complicated cycle of gravity, orbit the planet, and finally land safely. According to a report in ‘India Today’, people associated with space science call it ‘Seven Minutes of Terror’. At this time the spacecraft depends on itself and the engineers and scientists also remain mere spectators like you and me.
During the soft landing of Chandrayaan-2 in 2019, ISRO has come across this. When his ambitious Chandrayaan-2 had a crash landing on the moon at the last moment. Now the Chandrayaan-3 mission is close to soft-landing on the Moon. But the biggest question is how is this possible? However, on August 23, the last 18 minutes of Chandrayaan-3 are going to be the most important in the way of creating history. The Vikram lander, a part of Chandrayaan-3, would then be orbiting at a speed of 1.6 km per second about 30 km above the lunar surface.
Chandrayaan-3’s engines will work as brakes
In the next 11.5 minutes, the engines of Chandrayaan-3 will start, which will act as a brake. With this, Chandrayaan will gradually move towards the surface of the Moon. This will reduce its speed by at least a quarter. The gravitational pull of the Moon will take the Vikram lander downward at a speed of about 60 meters per second. Chandrayaan-3 will turn slightly while slowing down. This turn will be to adjust Chandrayaan-3 completely with the landing site.
32 km from landing.
The chance for the last investigation will be far away. At that time, the lander was just 32 km from the place of landing. Will be far away and about 7.5 km from the surface of the moon. will hover above This would be the moment to double check that the landing site is safe. ISRO has upgraded this process to make it faster and more accurate. During this phase, all the sensors of Vikram Lander will be closely integrated, which will ensure that it is now fully ready for this big occasion.
