ISRO’s Chandrayaan 3 Lander Module will attempt a soft landing on the moon’s surface today.


The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Wednesday said it is all set to initiate the Automatic Landing Sequence (ALS) for its ambitious third Moon mission Chandrayaan-3’s Lander Module (LM) to touch down on the lunar surface this evening.

The LM comprising the lander (Vikram) and the rover (Pragyan) is scheduled to make a touch down near the south polar region of the Moon at 6:04 pm on Wednesday, a feat not achieved by any country so far.

Prayers were held at prominent places of worship across India including in Varanasi, Mathura and Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh for the safe landing of Chandrayaan-3 on the moon’s surface.
