ISRO successfully performed 5th Earth bound maneuver. As Chandrayaan-3, India’s ambitious lunar mission, approaches the final stretch before reaching the Moon, it successfully performed its fifth and final Earth-bound orbit raising manoeuvre.
The spacecraft will set up for lunar insertion on August 1st, according to ISRO.
Chandrayaan-3, which was launched on July 14, has been steadily inclining its orbit around the planet. Between 2:00 and 3:30 IST today, the fifth orbit-raising manoeuvre was successfully performed.
The goal of Chandrayaan-3 goes beyond simply getting there. It intends to carry out research to investigate the lunar environment, including its geology, history, and resource potential. The spacecraft is made up of an ISRO developed lander and rover that are intended to safely land on the lunar surface, gather data, and carry out a number of scientific experiments.
