Chandrayaan-3, a remarkable ISRO mission, achieved successful manoeuvres from the ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) in Bengaluru.
The mission positioned Chandrayaan-3 in an orbit of 153 km x 163 km, completing lunar-bound manoeuvres.
Chandrayaan-3 is composed of a lander module (LM), a propulsion module (PM), and a rover.
A series of orbital reduction manoeuvres led to Chandrayaan-3's successful insertion into the lunar orbit.
The mission is preparing for a crucial event on August 17 – the separation of the Lander Module from the Propulsion Module.
Delicate separation of the propulsion module from the lander will occur in orbit.
Complex braking manoeuvres are planned to ensure a soft landing in the Moon's South Polar region on August 23.
Chandrayaan-3's journey began on July 14, with five Earth-bound manoeuvres executed between July 15 and 25.
Chandrayaan-3 successfully entered lunar orbit on August 5, followed by precise orbit reduction manoeuvres to position it over the lunar poles.
