If all goes well, the Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft is going to be launched in the first half of the next year 2021.
However, the third edition of ISRO’s lunar mission will not have an orbiter. Only Landers and rovers will be sent.
A few days after the ‘hard landing’ of Chandrayaan-2 when it landed on the moon in September last year, ISRO announced that a third vehicle would be sent in 2020.
But, then all the project work was delayed due to coronavirus infection and lockdown. Chandrayaan-3 was not left out.
Later, it was decided that this spacecraft will be sent in early 2021.
Union Minister Jitendra Singh said Chandrayaan-2 will be like Chandrayaan-3 but the difference is the same.
This time there is no orbiter. Chandrayaan-3 will cross the moon with only lander and rover.
Chandrayaan-2 was launched on July 22 previous year 2019.
The destination was the south pole of the moon. Lander Vikram and Rover Pragyan were supposed to land there.
However, Vikram broke down due to a hard landing on September 6.
At the same time, the dream of a successful landing on the moon of India was shattered in the first attempt.

However, the orbiter that was sent on that mission is still working. Sending regular pictures and information.
Earlier, the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft also had an orbiter. He also sent pictures.
For that reason, it was decided not to send an orbiter to the next expedition.
Jitendra Singh said that after seeing the pictures sent by the Chandrayaan-1 orbiter in 2006.
The scientists guessed that the moon was catching ‘rust’ in the desert region.
Everyone knows that the earth and rocks of the moon are full of iron ore.
But, iron needs two things to rust water and second oxygen then the iron will rust.
Evidence of the existence of water and oxygen on the moon has not yet been found in the book.
According to the information sent by Chandrayaan-1, there may be water in the desert of the moon.
For that reason, Chandrayaan-2 tries to land in this desert region. Had there been a soft-landing, perhaps all the evidence would have been clear by now.
Meanwhile, work on India’s first manned spaceflight ‘Gaganyan’ is also progressing rapidly.
The training of the explorers and the whole process is progressing at a certain pace.
Work for Corona has come to a temporary halt, but efforts are now being made to complete it quickly.
