New Delhi: Today, India has achieved a major success in the Chandrayaan 3 mission. The Vikram lander has separated from the propulsion module while continuing the mission. After that, the lander will now travel alone to the moon, where it will make a soft landing on the south side on August 23. If the landing is successful, India will become the first country to land on the southern side of the Moon. It will also be the fourth country to achieve a soft landing on the moon after the US, Russia and China.

The propulsion module will remain outside the lunar orbit.

After separating from the propulsion module, the lander is now in lunar orbit. Here it will rotate until August 23. During this time, its speed will decrease. After that, it will be landed on the surface of the moon. Meanwhile, the propulsion module will be converted to relay satellites. It will remain outside the orbit of the Moon and revolve around it.

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.
