Isro observes the lunar orbit traffic as Vikram, from Chandrayaan-3, prepares to land.

Exiting into the vicinity of near-Earth.

Chandrayaan 3 marks a historic journey to the moon at 02:18.

Observing objects in the deepest space.

The orbits of the moon are cyclical.

What is the present state of affairs?

The potential for compromise in close approaches and the mitigation of risks.

The next step is to move forward.

Chandrayaan-3’s Vikram approaches the Moon, with a landing only 1,437 km away.

Isro has already conducted a detailed analysis of the lunar traffic for the next two weeks before moving forward to soft-landing Vikram, the Chandrayaan-2 lander. This will be accompanied by at least three collision avoidance manoeuvres (CAMs) to mitigate critical close approaches with other spacecraft.
