Chandrayan-3, the third lunar exploration mission, by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is all set to be launched by August 2022, R.Venkatraman, the Deputy Director of Vehicle Assemblies and Launch Facilities, ISRO, has said. Interacting with students of Queen Mira International School at the Space Talk Show on Monday, he said, “Chandrayan -2 Vikram had crashlanded as the lander and orbiter separation was difficult. We at ISRO never give up. We learn lessons from our failure to make our next mission success. We have put powerful engine for Chandrayan-3, which is scheduled for launch in August, and have learnt to control wobbling and oscillation.” To a question from QMIS Managing Director Abinath Chandran as to whether there was inter-connectivity between the two disciplines – Astronomy and Astrology, Dr. Venkatraman answered in the affirmative and said, “We do follow the time factor (during launches) to some extent, but there are occasions when we have seen failure when there has been one second delay and success despite 300 micro-seconds of delay.”
