The moon is set to be landed by Chandrayaan-3 on August 23.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) has shared new images of the moon on X (formerly called Twitter) from India’s third lunar mission, Chandrayaan-3. The combined images show Earth as captured by its Lander Image camera and a photo of one day after the spacecraft entered lunar orbit earlier this month.
The moon landing is planned for August 23.
The new images, taken by Isro, display the Eddington craters, Aristarchus and Pythagoras, and the Oceanus Procellarum (Ocean of Storms), which is the largest of the “sea” and covers an area around 4,000,000 square kilometres.
The Chandrayaan-3 mission is of great importance.

The Lander Horizontal Velocity Camera (LHVC) is a camera designed to increase the footage’s vertical range.
The day following the Lunar Orbit Insertion was a crucial day.
The development of LI and LHV cameras is the responsibility of SAC and LEOS, as indicated by https://t.co.io/tKlKjieQJS… pic.twitter.com/6QISmdsdRS. ISRO (@iso) on August 10, 2023.
Chandrayaan-3 will conduct a series of de-orbiting maneuvers to bring it closer to the moon so that it can land on its own.
After the lander “deboost”, which slows it down, a separation exercise will be carried out, and then on August 23, they will finally touch down on the moon, as stated by Isro chief S Somanath.
According to Mr Somanath’s statement to PTI, “Vikram is designed to land as long as the propulsion system works properly, even if all sensors fail or everything fails, and nothing happens.”
India has become the fourth country to have successfully landed on the moon, with Chandrayaan-3 marking a soft landing and confirming their ability to achieve this feat safely.
