Chandrayaan-3 is now only a short distance from the moon, ISRO got success, then changed the orbit

Chandrayaan-3 is moving towards its destination Moon's South Pole with high speed. Today once again the orbit of the vehicle has been reduced. After this, changes will be made in the orbit again and finally the process of soft landing will be completed.

As Chandrayaan-3 is going closer to the moon, the hope of the country is increasing. ISRO has once again changed the orbit of the vehicle. With this, Chandrayaan reached closer to the moon. The space agency has changed the orbit of the vehicle for the third time today between 11.30 and 12.30. The vehicle is now at a distance of 150×177 kilometers from the moon. When ISRO changed the orbit on August 9, Chandrayaan was at a distance of 174×1437 km from the moon. Along with this, the space agency has fixed August 16 as the next date for the change in orbit.

Chandrayaan-3 is expected to land on the moon on August 23 after a 40-day journey. The target is to land the vehicle on the south pole of the moon. If it is successful, India will become the first country to make a soft landing on the South Pole. Today, after the change in orbit, Chandrayaan-3 has reached even closer to the lunar surface. Today, after the change in orbit, the vehicle will now go round the moon.
