We’ll be able to land gently on the moon. According to ISRO Chairman S Somnath, Chandrayaan-3 will launch on July 13 and may stay in orbit till July 19.

He said that the launch would occur on July 13. It might, however, extend until July 19.

Earlier on June 28, S. Somanath, the chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation, declared that Chandrayaan 3 testing is over and that the launch window is intended between July 12 and 19.

The Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft is currently completely assembled. We successfully finished testing and connected to the rocket compartment. The current window of possibility for launch is from July 12 to July 19, and we will choose the earliest date, either the 12th, 13th, or 14th. After all of the testing are finished, we will reveal the precise date, Somanath informed ANI.

He also provided an update on the Aditya-L1 Mission, India’s first mission to study the Sun, earlier in June and stated that ISRO is aiming for the end of August as the objective for its launch.

The head of ISRO also discussed his thoughts on the Artemis Accords, saying that he sees it as a chance for Indian businesses engaged in the space industry to collaborate with US businesses.

The Artemis Accord is being viewed by us as a political engagement with the US. When the US proposes cooperative effort in the space sector, notably the exploration of distant planets in a very cordial atmosphere amongst different nations, it is a declaration of intent that we support that. Thus, it makes a strong statement. Particularly when it comes to advanced technology, such as space, we would prefer to collaborate with the US. It will create prospects for Indian businesses engaged in the space industry to collaborate with US businesses engaged in the same industry, he said.

Therefore, the development of electronics, new processors, and the centre all occur in the US, and the Indian company’s access to this new technology is crucial for them to innovate and add value, giving them a chance to promote their products in the US market. The US has set this as its specific goal. Therefore, we want to ensure that Indian businesses support the US space programme. Right now, it’s not a good thing. Therefore, the earlier the US recognises the potential,Indian businesses are looking to capitalise on their current technological superiority, cost effectiveness, and quick development cycles. Accordingly, the signature of this entire agreement serves the interests of both the US and India, for which it was jointly developed.
