Several satellites and lunar missions have been successfully launched in the past using the three-stage launch vehicle LVM3. Here is the Chandrayaan-3 mission’s complete flight path following liftoff.
The Chandrayaan-3 mission to the Moon is about to take off, according to the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro). On Friday at 2:35 p.m., the spacecraft will launch from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre’s Spaceport in Sriharikota.
The strong LVM-3 rocket, which will propel the Indian spacecraft on a route to the Moon and send it beyond of Earth’s orbit, is at the center of this interplanetary journey.
What is LVM-3?
Several satellites and lunar missions have been successfully launched in the past using the three-stage launch vehicle LVM3.
The ‘Bahubali’ of Indian rockets, is propelled by a core stage powered by liquid fuel and two solid-fuel boosters. The liquid-fuel core stage provides the sustained thrust to launch the rocket into orbit, while the solid-fuel boosters provide the initial impulse.
Several different satellites, including the Chandrayaan-2 lunar mission, the Astrosat astronomy satellite, and the GSAT-19 communication satellite, have been launched using LVM-3 in the past. It will also be utilized to launch the crewed Gaganyaan mission, which will be India’s maiden trip into space.
