ISRO chief K.K. Sivan (ISRO Chief KK Sivan) has said that Chandrayaan-3 launch (Chandrayaan-3 launch) is now expected in 2022 which was earlier to be launched in late 2020. The Covid-19 Lockdown has affected several projects of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), including Chandrayaan-3 and the country’s first manned space mission ‘Gaganyaan’. Chandrayaan-3 will not have an ‘orbiter’ like its predecessors. Sivan said, “We are working on it.” It is similar to Chandrayaan-2, but it will not have an orbiter. Only the orbiter sent with Chandrayaan-2 will be used for Chandrayaan-3. With this, we are working on a system and most likely the launch will be in 2022 next year.

Chandrayaan-2 was launched on 22 July 2019 and was sent to land the ‘rover’ in the South Pole region of the Moon. However, Chandrayaan-2 lander ‘Vikram’ did not succeed in making a ‘soft landing’ on 7 September 2019 and India’s dream of achieving this success in the first attempt remained unfulfilled. Chandrayaan-3 is also an important mission for ISRO, which will pave the way for India in interplanetary ‘landings’. Sivan said that there is a plan to execute the first unmanned mission of ISRO in December this year under the Gaganyaan project, which was to be executed in December last year. He said that after this another unmanned mission will be executed and then in the third time manned mission will be carried out.

When asked about the launch of the third module-manned mission under this project, Sivan said, “Much technology demonstration is required. After testing that all technology is perfect, we will decide the launch time of the human mission.
