ISRO's Chandrayaan-3 Mission: All You Need To Know

Updated 20 Sep 2019 06:12 PM

Chandrayaan-3 is a robotic sample-return lunar mission concept by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and Japan's space agency JAXA that would send a lunar rover and lander to explore the south pole region of the Moon in 2024. JAXA is likely to provide the under-development H3 launch vehicle and the rover, while ISRO would be responsible for the lander.
The mission concept has not yet been formally proposed for funding and planning. If approved, it would be the third mission of India's Chandrayaan programme. The mission would demonstrate new surface exploration technologies related to vehicular transport and lunar night survival for sustainable lunar exploration in polar regions with payload capacity of "several-hundred kilograms". Water prospecting, sample collection and analysis, and sample-return, are likely to be mission objectives.
