Chandrayaan 3: The first picture of the Chandrayaan-3 mission has come out just after the separation of the lander module from the propulsion module. This picture was taken by the Lander Imager. This picture was taken on August 17 by Camera-1 attached to the Lander Imager. Earlier on Thursday (August 17), the lander was separated from the propulsion module. The lander module houses the lander and the rover.

Vikram Lander himself has to cover a distance of about 100 km in this mission. The lander module will go through the deboosting process and descend into the lower orbit of the Moon. In the process of deboosting, the speed of the lander decreases. Chandrayaan-3  It was launched on 14 July from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota. 

Earlier Chandrayaan-3 was placed in the orbit of the fifth orbit through maneuver (pushing it in a certain way using the engines of the spacecraft), which made its path more circular.

Landing will happen on the moon on August 23
According to the Indian Space Research Center (ISRO), the lander will land on the lunar surface on August 23 at 5.47 pm. Lander Vikram and Rover will land on the south pole of the moon. If the soft landing of Moon-3 is done successfully, then India will become the fourth country to do so after America, Russia and China.  

Chandrayaan-2 was launched earlier
Earlier ISRO launched Chandrayaan-2  from Sriharikota on 22 July 2019. It was to make a soft landing on 6 September 2019. However, ISRO lost contact with Vikram three minutes before the moon landing.
