Sriharikota: ISRO today released some new images of the moon taken by the Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft on its X site. The lander is constantly sending photos of the landing sites on the moon.
In that way, some of the new photos taken by the lander today have been released as the lander is scheduled to land tomorrow (23 Aug) at 6.04 pm. These photos were taken on August 19. It is noted that Chandrayaan 3 is currently orbiting the Moon at a reduced distance of 25 km x 134 km.
Earlier, Russia’s Luna-25 spacecraft lost control and crashed while entering a pre-landing orbit. Due to this, the attention of the entire space research world has turned towards ISRO’s Chandrayaan 3.
In this case, it is worth noting that the lander is taking pictures to avoid such accidents, which area can be avoided and which is the best place.

Journey of Chandrayaan 3: Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO)’s Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft was launched from Sriharikota on July 14 by LVM-3 rocket. Chandrayaan-3 entered lunar orbit on August 5 after various stages of travel.
Scientists are currently working on lowering the orbital altitude and gently landing the spacecraft on the moon.
