Chandrayaan 3 mission: Detailed timeline of key milestones

Here is a comprehensive timeline of significant developments in the Chandrayaan-3 mission up to the present, along with upcoming milestones in the coming days.

• July 6: ISRO announces the launch date for Mission Chandrayaan-3 as July 14 from Sriharikota's second pad.

• July 7: Successful completion of vehicle electrical tests.

• July 11: Completion of a comprehensive 24-hour 'Launch Rehearsal' simulating the entire launch process.

• July 14: LVM3 M4 vehicle launches Chandrayaan-3 into its designated orbit.

• July 15: Successful execution of the first orbit-raising manoeuvre, achieving a 41762 km x 173 km orbit.

• July 17: Second orbit-raising maneuver places Chandrayaan-3 in a 41603 km x 226 km orbit.

• July 22: Fourth orbit-raising manoeuvre establishes the spacecraft in a 71351 km x 233 km orbit.

• July 25: Successful execution of another orbit-raising manoeuvre.

• August 1: Chandrayaan-3 inserted into translunar orbit (288 km x 369328 km).

• August 5: Successful lunar orbit insertion (164 km x 18074 km).

• August 6: Lowering of lunar orbit to 170 km x 4,313 km.

• August 9: ISRO carefully adjusts the spacecraft's path to achieve a lunar orbit of 174 km x 1437 km.

• August 14: Chandrayaan-3 approaches the moon's surface, reaching an orbit of 150 km x 177 km.

• August 16: The spacecraft performs its fifth and final Moon-bound manoeuvre, positioning itself in a near-circular Lunar orbit of 163 km x 153 km.

• August 17: Separation of the landing module, consisting of the Vikram lander and Pragyan rover, from its propulsion system.

• August 18: Successful completion of a 'deboosting' operation, reducing the orbit to 113 km x 157 km.

• August 20: Planned final orbit adjustment is undertaken to achieve an orbit of 134 km x 25 km, representing the farthest and nearest points from the moon respectively.

• August 23: If all goes as planned, a lunar touchdown attempt is scheduled at 5:47 pm, covering the last 30 km distance.

However, the mission's success hinges on landing on the moon at dawn to enable 14 Earth days of research, as the subsequent lunar night's cold temperatures would impact the rover's functionality. In the contrary scenario, ISRO might reschedule the landing for the next available slot in September.
