New Indian moon landing attempt

Work is going ‘smoothly’ on the Chandrayaan-3 mission to put a rover
probe on the moon’s surface, Indian Space Research Organisation chairman K. Sivan told a press conference.

India is seeking to become only the fourth nation after Russia, the United States and China to put a mission on the moon’s surface and boost its credentials as a low-cost space power.

The country’s Chandrayaan-2 module crashed on the moon’s surface in September 2019.
