ISRO sets to launch Chandrayaan-3 by November 2020

Agency News

ISRO, India’s premier space agency, is set to launch Chandrayaan3 by November 2020.

Chandrayaan 3 will be part of ISRO’s crucial lunar operations. The new mission will include only a lander and rover, as in the Chandrayaan2.

On September 7, the ISRO’s ambitions to touch down the south pole of the Moon faced a technical glitch after the space agency lost contact from Chandrayaan-2's Vikram lander moments before landing on lunar surface. As soon as the fine braking phase started, the Vikram lander suddenly deviated from its path and stopped sending data back to the ground control.
