In this article, we discussed Chandrayaan 3 Launch Date, Cost, Launch Vehicle, Mission, Rover Name. In past decades ISRO achieve tremendous success in the field of Space Technology and gain popularity around the world. After a failure in Chandrayaan 2, scientists decided to relaunch the mission named Chandrayaan 3. Continue with the article for more insights.
Chandrayaan 3 Launch Date
Previously ISRO made an attempt to get a successful Chandrayaan 2 but due to some technical glitch, the mission failed. Therefore ISRO scientists again attempt to get success by launching Chandrayaan 3.

It will be launched by LVM3 from SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota. The propulsion module will carry the lander and rover configuration till the 100 km lunar orbit. The propulsion module has Spectro-polarimetry of Habitable Planet Earth (SHAPE) payload to study the spectral and Polari metric measurements of Earth from the lunar orbit.
Chandrayaan 3 Rover Name
Chandrayaan 3 Rover name is “Pragyan Rover”, To study the lunar laser ranges, an embedded payload known as the Passive Laser Retroreflector Array is utilized. ISRO scientists have dedicated their efforts to ensure meticulous data collection for this lunar research.
