Chandrayaan 3 Successful: India's 'Chandravijay' ... Tricolor hoisted on the moon
Chandrayaan-3‘s lander has created history by stepping on the south pole of the moon. It completed the journey of 25 km from the final orbit of the Moon in 30 minutes. The lander was slowly lowered down.
The initial rough landing at 5:30 p.m. was very successful. After this, the lander made a vertical landing at 5.40 p.m. Then its distance from the moon was 3 km.
Finally, the lander took the first step on the moon at 6.04 p.m. In this way, India became the first country in the world to land on the south pole of the moon.
It has become the fourth country to land a vehicle on any part of the moon. Earlier only America, the Soviet Union, and China achieved this success.
Now everyone is waiting for Pragyan Rover to come out from Vikram Lander. It will come out after the dust settles. It will take approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes. After this Vikram and Pragyan will photograph each other and send it to Earth. chandrayaa
Modi said – Chanda Mama Door Ke Nahi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the scientists by joining video conferencing. He said- This moment is of India’s strength. This is the moment of new energy, new faith, and new consciousness in India. It rained nectar in the time of immortality. We took a pledge on Earth and made it come true on the moon. We have witnessed the new flight of new India in space.
Every Indian is immersed in celebration as soon as new history is made. Earlier it was said that Chanda Mama is very far away. A day will come when the children will say that Chanda Mama belongs to the bus tour.
Then this record would have been in the name of Russia
Before India, Russia was going to land Luna-25 on the south pole of the moon. This landing was to take place on August 21, but while changing the last orbit, it deviated from the path and crashed on the lunar surface.
Chandrayaan-3 was launched from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh on July 14 at 3.35 pm. It took 41 days to land on the lunar surface. The total distance of the Moon from the Earth is 3 lakh 84 thousand kilometers.
What will happen after landing?
- Vikram will be on and will communicate after the dust settles.
- Then the ramp will open and Pragyan Rover will come from the ramp to the lunar surface.
- The wheels will leave an imprint of the Ashoka Pillar and the ISRO logo on the lunar soil.
- Vikram Lander will take a photo of Pragyan and Pragyan of Vikram. They will send this photo to the Earth.
50 scientists lost their night, the atmosphere of excitement and anxiety in the command center
More than 50 scientists at the Mission Operation Complex (MOX) of ISRO’s Telemetry and Command Center (ISTRAC) in Bengaluru were busy checking the data received from Chandrayaan-3 on computers throughout the night. They are sending inputs to the lander so that every scope for making wrong decisions at the time of landing is over.
Vikram's two engines will not work even if the vehicle will land
ISRO Chairman S Somnath had said on August 9 about Vikram’s landing- ‘If everything fails, if all sensors fail, nothing works, still it (Vikram) will land, provided algorithms work properly. We have also ensured that even if two engines of Vikram fail this time, it will still be capable of landing.
He had told me that the last 19 minutes of Chandrayaan-3 would be breathtaking. The speed at the start of landing will be 6,048 km/h. It will be less than 10 km/h while touching the moon. The landing site will not be selected from the ISRO command center. The lander will select the location from its computer.
Virtually connected in PM Modi’s live event Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually connected with South Africa in the live event of the landing. For the success of this mission, people in the country and abroad started performing Havan rituals a day in advance.
