Chandrayaan-3 landing live streaming: When and where to watch ISRO land its lander on moon
Chandrayaan-3 landing live streaming: India's Chandrayaan-3 mission nears a historic Moon landing. Know when and where to catch this exciting event live as ISRO looks to land its lander on the moon.
India's exciting mission to the Moon is almost there! Chandrayaan-3 is getting ready to land on the Moon's south pole. There's less than 12 hours to go before this historic moment for India. The Lander Module, called Vikram Lander, will find the perfect spot to land on the Moon. If everything goes as planned by ISRO, India will become the fourth country ever to gently touch down on the Moon. The others are the US, China and Russia. Know when and where to watch the historic Chandrayaan-3 landing live streaming.
The experts are saying that the last 15 to 20 minutes are the most important for the mission's success. During this time, Chandrayaan-3's Vikram lander will make a soft landing.
Because India's second lunar mission failed in the last 20 minutes before landing, ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) is being extra careful this time. The part just before landing is considered very risky, and some even call it the "20 or 17 minutes of terror." In this phase, the whole process will be automatic. The Vikram lander has to use its engines at the right times and altitudes without human control.
