Chandrayaan-3 ( India had completed the final assessment of launch, soon to be launched)

Chandrayaan-3– ISRO had made the final essential preparation for the launch of the Chandrayaan-3 for the launch of final stages, where the rocket assembly is completed and only final tests are in the pipeline.

Chandrayaan 3- in details

It is a continuum programme of the Chandrayaan-2 for the Indian lunar programme. C It consists of the Lander and Rover configuration. launched from SDSC SHAR. Sriharikota. Its propulsion modules can carry the lander and rover configuration to a 100 km lunar orbit, while its module had  Spectro-polarimetry of Habitable Planet Earth (SHAPE) payload to study the spectral and Polari metric measurements of Earth from the lunar orbit. It contains Chandra’s Surface Thermophysical Experiment (ChaSTE) which measures the thermal conductivity and temperature of outer orbit while it had an Instrument for Lunar Seismic Activity (ILSA) for measuring the seismicity around the landing site; Langmuir Probe (LP) to estimate the plasma density and its variations
