chandrayan – 3 is, it is India’s mission to the moon. ISRO which is India’s space agency is sending a rover to explore the south pole of the moon.
And in typical ISRO style, the cost of the mission is just $75 million which is $100million less than what it took to make the movie Interstellar.
China and the United States have landed in many locations on the Moon’s southern hemisphere (where water and ice have been discovered), but not near the South Pole. The South Pole is theoretically not visible from Earth.
With Chandrayaan-1, India became the first country to make a hard landing or impact on the Moon’s South Pole. They are now the first to place a rover there.
Chandrayaan-2, India’s second lunar mission, launched on 22 July 2019, aimed to soft-land on the south polar region but lost contact and crashed landed the rover.
The identical task awaits Chandrayaan-3, which should land safely this time. When compared to Chandrayaan-2, it has slightly updated technology.
