ISRO Chandrayaan-3 Live Update Status
India’s ambitious Chandrayaan-3 mission is gently orbiting the moon with the exciting goal of landing on its surface. Launched on July 14, 2023, from the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, the spacecraft has safely entered lunar orbit and is approaching its surface. Chandrayaan-3 is currently about 1,437 kilometers from the Moon. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) guided the spacecraft through clever maneuvers like the Aug. 5 launch of the Lunar Orbit.
