Chandrayaan-3 Passes Vibration Tests Ahead of Launch
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has announced the successful completion of vibration tests for its upcoming moon spacecraft, Chandrayaan-3.
The tests were conducted earlier this month at the UR Rao Satellite Centre in Bengaluru to assess the spacecraft's ability to withstand harsh vibration and acoustic conditions during its launch.
Chandrayaan-3 is composed of three modules - Propulsion, Lander, and Rover - making the testing process particularly challenging. However, ISRO stated that the tests had provided enough confidence in the spacecraft's structural integrity and survivability in the launch environment.
Chandrayaan-3 is set to launch later this year, with the aim of studying the moon's surface and mineral composition.
