ISRO Chandrayaan-3 Launch Budget 2023 The eyes of the whole world are focused on India’s moon mission Chandrayaan-3. If Chandrayaan-3 is compared to the Moon mission of China and America, then it has been prepared very cheaply. If it succeeds, a new history will be created.
ISRO’s third moon mission is going to be launched today to hoist India’s tricolor on the moon. Chandrayaan-3 will be launched by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) at 2.35 pm from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota.
The eyes of the whole world are fixed on this moon mission of India. Chandrayaan-3 will be launched with an LVM3-M4 rocket. The LVM-3 is a heavy-lift launch vehicle that can carry a large payload into space. It is the most powerful rocket ever developed by ISRO.
How is this mission different from Chandrayaan 1 and Chandrayaan 2?
Chandrayaan-3 being launched by ISRO is slightly different from the earlier missions. ISRO kept only the orbiter in Chandrayaan-1. Chandrayaan-2 had a lander and a rover along with the orbiter. Now there is no orbiter in Chandrayaan-3, but the lander and rover will remain. ISRO has named the lander Vikram and the rover Pragyan as before.
The Chandrayaan-3 mission was to be launched in the year 2021, but it got delayed due to Corona. Let us tell you that the lander had crashed in Chandrayaan-2 and the American space agency NASA had found its debris.
What is the objective of the mission?
Chandrayaan-3 is being called the follow up mission of ISRO. The objective of this mission is to soft land the lander on the lunar surface around 23-24 August. Chandrayaan moon will first go round the moon and the lander will separate from it at a distance of 100 km.
There is a six-wheeled robot inside this lander which will come out, which is called a rover.
What will be gained from Chandrayaan-3?
Through Chandrayaan-3, ISRO wants to find out the presence of water and minerals on the moon. If water and minerals are found at the South Pole, it will be a great success for science. According to NASA, there is ice on the south pole of the moon and many more natural resources can also be found here.
The US, Russia, and China have landed landers on the moon, but India could become the first country to do so at the South Pole.
Prepared on less budget than America and China
The budget of the Chandrayaan-3 mission is around Rs 615 crore. It is also much less than the amount allocated for Chandrayaan-2, as the budget of Rs 960 crore was allotted for the previous mission.
Let us tell you that if it is compared to the moon mission of China and America, then it is very cheap. China completed the moon mission Change 4 for Rs 69.38 lakh crore, while America has spent Rs 825 lakh crore on its moon mission so far.
Common people can also watch live
