Indian Space Research Organization launched mission Chandrayaan-3 to the moon on 14 July 2023. ISRO’s Chandrayaan 3 mission has reached an almost circular orbit as the spacecraft moving in a 174 km wide and 1437 km long orbit around the moon was retrofitted to take the spacecraft into a 151 km wide and 179 km long circular orbit and moved closer to the moon.
According to the information received, the ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network in Bengaluru has started the orbit reduction process on 16 August 2023. Thereafter, the spacecraft will enter into a 100 km wide lunar circular orbit. ISRO aims to soft-land the Chandrayaan 3 lander on the lunar surface at the south pole on 23 August 2023. After this, India will become the fourth country to land its payload on the Moon.
Russia’s Luna 25 spacecraft is also heading towards the Moon and is expected to land at the South Pole on 21 August 2023. The country whose spacecraft will land first on the South Pole of the Moon will become the first country to achieve this feat.

Chandrayaan 3 Live Status 2023
Under India’s ambitious Moon mission, today i.e. on 17 August 2023, the propulsion module of Chandrayaan-3 will be separated from the lander and rover. Now the propulsion module will study the radiations coming from the Earth by staying in the lunar orbit for 3-6 months, while the lander-rover will land on the lunar surface on 23 August 2023 at 5:47 pm.
Where it will do other experiments including water search for 14 days. It got closer to the moon on 16 August 2023 and now the distance of Chandrayaan-3 from the surface of the Moon is only 150 km. With this, the last phase of the success of the mission has started. On which the eyes of many big countries of the world are there.
