New Delhi: Today, August 17, is a very important day for India’s Chandrayaan 3 mission. Today, Vikram will be separated from the lander propulsion module and will single-handedly navigate the rest of the journey to the moon. It can now be said that as India is moving towards self-reliance, Vikram Lander will also be on the path of self-reliance. Around 1 pm today, the Vikram lander will reach lunar orbit with the help of the propulsion module. The two will then leave each other’s surface and Vikram himself will chart the path forward.

The mission was launched on July 14.

Now the question must be rising in your mind that what is this propulsion module and how will it work now? How will it work now that the lander has separated? In this article we are going to provide you with all this information. Let me tell you that Chandrayaan-3 was launched on July 14 at 2.45 pm by LVM3 rocket. After that, it has now traveled closer to the moon’s orbit. The journey from here to reach the moon is very delicate.

‘Vikram’ will enter lunar orbit today.

Meanwhile, India TV spoke to an ISRO scientist who was playing an important role in the Chandrayaan 3 mission. He said that currently Vikram lander with propulsion module is in space. Both are close to lunar orbit and this afternoon the module will separate the lander and send it into lunar orbit. From here, the lander itself will move to the surface of the Moon and if all goes well, it will land at the South Pole on August 23. Meanwhile, the propulsion module will continue to orbit the same spot from which it docked the lander.

The lander carries seven payloads.

After that, when the lander starts its work on the moon, this module will take the form of a relay satellite and play a very important role for the Chandrayaan 3 mission. We tell you that there are seven payloads on the Vikram lander, which have different functions. Any signal sent by these payloads will be received by this relay satellite. The relay satellite will decode these signals and send them to ISRO’s control room on the ground. Simply put, the propulsion module from today will act as a bridge between the Vikram lander and the messages in Earth form. In this context, the role of the propulsion module will become even more important.
