ISRO's Chandrayaan 3 mission to launch in July; Know all about the new Aditya L1 mission
India's space agency, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), has announced plans to launch its third moon mission, Chandrayaan-3, in July. The mission will include an indigenous lander module and a rover, with the lander having the capability to soft land and deploy the rover. ISRO is also planning to launch its first Surya mission, Aditya-L1, in the same month.
Chandrayaan-2 Glitch Resolved in Chandrayaan-3
The Chandrayaan-2 mission in 2019 was successful in putting the lunar orbit, but its lander deviated from its trajectory and crashed on the Moon during the landing attempt due
to a software glitch. ISRO has resolved the glitch in Chandrayaan-3 and is hopeful that the launch will go according to schedule.
Aditya L1 Mission to Study the Sun
Aditya-L1 is India's first mission to research the Sun. Originally envisioned as Aditya-1, carrying a payload, VELC, a 400 kg class satellite and planned to be launched into an 800 km low earth orbit, Aditya-L1 will now be launched alongside Chandrayaan-3.
ISRO officials have stated that the agency is currently completing all tests, and preparations are underway for the two missions. The Aditya-L1 mission will

the solar corona and its dynamics and help enhance understanding of the Sun's atmosphere. It will be placed in a halo orbit around the Lagrangian point 1 (L1), which is a point of gravitational equilibrium between the Earth and the Sun.
India's First Scientific Mission
Chandrayaan-3 is India's first scientific mission, and it is expected to further the understanding of the Moon's surface and subsurface. The mission will also help to explore the presence of water on the Moon and map its resources. The previous Chandrayaan mission, Chandrayaan-2, had successfully discovered water on the
which could be crucial for future space exploration.
ISRO is one of the most prominent space agencies in the world, and its space program is a source of national pride for India. The country has successfully launched several missions in the past, including Mars Orbiter Mission and the recently launched Amazonia-1 satellite for Brazil.
The launch of Chandrayaan-3 and Aditya-L1 in July will mark another milestone for ISRO and the Indian space program. The success of these missions will help to further cement India's position as a leading player in the global space race.
