Chandrayaan 3 update: On August 23, 2023, a proud moment for India, which created history after joining the moon landing club.

Astronauts, contributors in the space center, and all the people of India celebrated the day as it’s been one of the significant feats they achieved.
It will be interesting to see how Indians commemorate this day every year. Note that it was the third attempt of Chandrayaan, as the two before failed to land on the moon.

Chandrayaan 3 update continues – Undoubtedly, the perfect landing of the Chandrayaan on the moon is commendable. It touched the South Pole as was anticipated.
Rover Pragyan from the Vikram Lander is now detached and released on the moon. The Rover is said to have been released after proper situational monitoring. Otherwise, it was supposed to land 24 hours later.
A tweet from Aditi Sharma and a picture of Rover taken from the lander declared that the Pragyan was launched immediately in a suitable environment when needed.
Note that it was not a good practice to launch the Rover Pragyan immediately after landing the Vikram as the dust could affect the proper functionalities of the Rover’s camera, instruments, and other critical tools installed on it. Therefore, it was implemented to be released as soon as the dust settles.
ISRO Chief S Somnath stated a few words about the Chandrayaan 3 update that it would take at least 24 hours for the dust to dissipate and hence would release the movable object. It was, however, quicker than the statement and was made a daring maneuver to avoid delaying the project as the condition was said to be perfect.
Under the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) government and the incumbent Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, Astronauts managed to create history after completing the mission of successfully landing Chandrayaan 3 on the moon.

Experts stated that the experiment is expected to remain functional for two weeks in the presence of sunlight. As soon as the night on the moon begins, solar-powered equipment is likely to shut down.
Two impressions, the ISRO logo & national emblem, are said to have been designed in the Rover’s rear wheels, leaving both of them in printed form as the Pragyan moves forward.
On the Chandrayaan 3 update, the people of India were informed about the intention of landing the Vikram lander before the mission was successful.
Reuters, a news agency, also explained the mission of India to send a Vikram lander to the lunar surface, said that the Chandrayaan-3 was aimed at the lunar sole pole, a region with water ice or frozen water, which could be a source of oxygen, fuel, and water for the future moon mission.
However, Chandrayaan 3 update, landing on the moon, hit the internet and garnered media attention. The news went viral on social media and became one of the top trends.
