Chandrayaan-3 Touchdown

ISRO’s Points

The touchdown time of Chandrayaan-3 was changed from 17:45 hours to 18:04 hours IST on August 23, 2023, due to a change in the orbital parameters of the lander module. The lander module was successfully deboosted to a lower orbit on Sunday, August 21, 2023, and is now expected to touch down on the lunar surface at 18:04 hours IST.

The change in the touchdown time was necessary to ensure that the lander module has enough time to make the necessary adjustments during the final descent phase. The lander module will be traveling at a speed of about 1.7 kilometers per second when it enters the lunar atmosphere, and it will need to slow down to about 2 meters per second in order to make a safe landing.

The ISRO has said that the change in the touchdown time will not affect the overall mission, and that Chandrayaan-3 is still on track to make a soft landing on the Moon’s surface on August 23, 2023.

Astrological Overview: Blessing In Disguise!!

Indeed the change in timing of touchdown was “Blessing In Disguise” because on comparison of the planetary charts at those timings.

After having close look at both the charts it is clear that, as per Lagne Chart Ascendant is in Capricorn in both the charts but their position in navamsha plays a significant role in their stability. the position of 23’20” to 26’40” is not stable. At touchdown time of 17.45 Hrs the position of ascendent is 24’16” which makes it unstable. But at the touchdown time of 18.04 Hrs the position of ascendent changes to 29’35” which makes it more stable.

Moreover the launching of Chandrayaan-3 has been done on an auspicious time and our scientists at ISRO had worked very hard for the success. This makes us confident for the successful touchdown tomorrow at moon dark face.

Why LUNA 25 was doomed. Failed??

On August 10,23.10Hrs Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, launched its Luna 25 spacecraft onboard a Soyuz 2 rocket from the Vostochny Cosmodrome. Luna 25 was a lander that was intended to soft-land near the moon’s south pole and study the optical, physical, and chemical properties of moondust and moon soil, and the atmosphere.

However, on August 20, Roscosmos announced that Luna 25 had crashed on the moon’s surface. The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but it is possible that there was a technical malfunction or human error.

The failure of Luna 25 is a setback for Russia’s lunar exploration program, but it is not a fatal one. Roscosmos has already announced plans to launch Luna 26 and Luna 27 in the coming years. These missions will be more ambitious than Luna 25, and they will help Russia to regain its status as a leading spacefaring nation.

Moreover as per the analysis of the planetary positions at the launch of LUNA 25, position of sun which provides the life force has crossed 23’20” in cancer (char rashi) and is at 23’48” which is not good and so is its fate.
