India's Chandrayaan-3 Blasts Off To The Moon

  • Chandrayaan-3, India’s third mission to the moon, has taken off successfully — almost four years after its predecessor failed to touch down on the lunar surface in 2019.
  • On Friday, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launched its ‘Launch Vehicle Mark-III’ rocket carrying the next Chandrayaan (Sanskrit for “moon vehicle”) from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in South India’s Sriharikota island.
  • The launch happened at 2:35 p.m. IST (2:05 a.m. PDT), the target time that was announced last week.
