Chandrayaan 3: Why was Chandrayaan-3 landed on the South Pole? ISRO chairman S. Somnath told the reason


Chandrayaan 3:
Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) President S. Somnath said that all the instruments of Chandrayaan-3 were prepared to land on the south pole of the moon or near it.

Chandrayaan 3 Landing on Moon: After the successful soft landing of Chandrayaan-3 on the moon, Lander Vikram and Rover Pragyan have joined the mission. Pragyan is traveling to the moon and will collect the data and send it to the lander Vikram. All this information will be sent to the scientists of ISRO sitting on the ground. ISRO created history by landing Chandrayaan-3 on the south pole of the moon. There are very deep pits here, because of this the landing was even more difficult. 

On August 20, Russia's mission Luna-25 crashed before soft landing at the South Pole. In such a situation, this is a big achievement for India and the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). The whole world is congratulating India for the mission.

This was the reason for landing Chandrayaan-3 at the South Pole,

according to NDTV's report, ISRO Chairman S. Somnath said that all the instruments of Chandrayaan-3 were prepared to land on the south pole of the moon or near it. He said that scientifically there is a lot of potential on the South Pole. There is a lot of hope for the presence of water and minerals here. S. Somnath told that apart from all these, many other processes are involved, for which 5 fixed equipments are working.

How did the work done for Chandrayaan-3 mission in 4 years?

Regarding the work going on for four years for Chandrayaan-3, S. Somnath told that due to the hard landing of Chandrayaan-2 in the year 2019, no information about the moon could be found, so the first year was spent in finding out the mistakes of the previous mission. The next year all the procedures were repeated and the last two years were tested. He told that during this time, the Corona epidemic also affected the mission and after that the mission came on track. 

The data that will be obtained through Chandrayaan-3 will expand the information about the moon and will also provide information about Luna water ice, which is one of the important sources of the moon. For the next 14 days, the six-wheeled rover Pragyan will visit the moon and collect information.
