    Dear colleagues,
    Congratulations to all scientists at Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) for launching of Chandrayaan-3 from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, India. 
    Chandrayaan-3 is the third lunar exploration mission by the Indian Space Research Organization  (ISRO). The launch of Chandrayaan-3 took place on 14 July 2023, at 2:35 pm IST and injection of 100 km circular polar orbit was completed successfully as part of phase one. The lander and rover is expected to land near the lunar south pole region on 23 August 2023. 
    Chandrayaan-3 consists of an indigenous Lander module (LM), Propulsion module (PM) and a Rover with an objective of developing and demonstrating new technologies required for Inter planetary missions. The Lander will have the capability to soft land at a specified lunar site and deploy the Rover which will carry out in-situ chemical analysis of the lunar surface during the course of its mobility. The Lander and the Rover have scientific payloads to carry out experiments on the lunar surface.
