On Friday, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) marked the flawless launch of the Chandrayaan 3 spacecraft into orbit around the Earth using the powerful LVM3 rocket.

The launch took place at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.

At exactly 14:35:17 hours local time, the LVM3 rocket, carrying a total payload of 3,895 kg (8,587.01 lbs), successfully lifted off. The rocket followed a trajectory that closely aligned with the preset plan of the Chandrayaan-3 launch, demonstrating its efficiency and effectiveness.

The Chandrayaan 3 satellite separated from the rocket after 965 seconds of flight. Shortly after, mission director S Mohana Kumar announced the success of the mission. “This is the mission director. The LVM3/Chandrayaan mission accomplished its precise satellite injection conditions. LVM3-M4 mission is successful.”
