Chandrayaan-3 Moon Landing Successful:
India has achieved a historic milestone by becoming the first nation to successfully land on the lunar South Pole. Prime Minister Modi conveyed his congratulations to both the citizens of India and the dedicated space scientists responsible for this remarkable feat. PM Modi emphasized that this day will forever hold significance in India’s memory.
The most critical phase of the mission unfolded during the final stage of the landing process. Approximately 20 minutes before touchdown, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) initiated the Automatic Landing Sequence (ALS). This allowed the Vikram Lunar Module (LM) to take over, utilizing its internal computers and algorithms to identify a suitable landing site and execute a gentle touchdown on the lunar surface.
Experts have highlighted the immense importance of the last 15 to 20 minutes of the mission, during which the Vikram lander of Chandrayaan-3 executed its controlled descent for a soft landing. People across India and around the globe offered their prayers for the successful landing of Chandrayaan-3 today.
Considering the past experience of India’s previous lunar mission, which encountered a setback in the final 20 minutes of its landing attempt, ISRO exercised additional care in the current endeavor. Given the heightened risk during the crucial moments prior to landing on the moon, this timeframe has come to be known as the “20 or 17 minutes of anxiety” by many. In this phase, the entire procedure transitioned into an autonomous mode, with the Vikram lander independently activating its engines at precise altitudes and timings.
