In light of the incident, Chandrayaan-3 is still on its way. The spacecraft has completed its sixth orbit-raising manoeuvre successfully. The spacecraft has finished its orbit-raising manoeuvres successfully. The ROTUZ (Panoptes-4) telescope in Poland has detected India’s ambitious moon mission, Chandrayaan-3, travelling in orbit. The obtained footage depicts the spacecraft as a minuscule dot against the wide backdrop of space, marking an important milestone in India’s space exploration path.

As Chandrayaan-3 continues its voyage, ground-based observations such as this one from the ROTUZ telescope will be critical in chronicling it. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) announced that the spacecraft performed the fifth orbit-raising manoeuvre successfully. The Trans Lunar Injection is currently scheduled for August 1. Chandrayaan-3 was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre on July 14, 2023, and is now in a 1,27,609 km x 236 km orbit around Earth. The spacecraft has completed its orbit-raising manoeuvres successfully, steadily increasing its speed and aligning it for lunar insertion.

ISRO Chairman S Somanath revealed that Chandrayaan-3 will undertake a technically difficult gentle landing on the lunar crust on August 23, 2023. The mission’s lander is scheduled to arrive near the Moon’s South Pole, an area that has yet to be investigated but might be rich in scientific data. The Chandrayaan-3 mission is critical for ISRO and the worldwide scientific community. It features the SHAPE (Spectro-polarimetry of HAbitable Planet Earth) payload, which will explore Earth from lunar orbit. The mission also seeks to test the rover’s lunar loitering capabilities, which will help us comprehend the lunar soil and environment.

As the world waits with bated breath, India might become the fourth country to execute a soft landing on the moon, after the United States, the Soviet Union, & China. The project also acts as a springboard for future interplanetary missions and possible cooperation with international space organisations.
