The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), which failed to land a probe on Moon in its first attempt in September 2019 (Chandrayaan-2), has begun work on Chandrayaan-3 with a deadline of November 2020.ISRO has formed multiple committees — an overall panel and three sub-committees — and held at least four high-level meetings since October. The new mission will include only a lander and rover, as the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter is functioning well. So far ISRO has looked at 10 specific aspects of the mission, including landing site selection, absolute navigation, and local navigation. The top priority for the new mission is “strengthening the legs of the lander”, so that it allows landing even with a high velocity. ISRO will be building a new lander and a rover. It is to be noted that India has launched Chandrayaan-2 in July 2019, with three modules — Orbiter, Lander (Vikram) & Rover (Pragyan).
