India made the first step towards a lunar soft landing with the near-perfect Chandrayaan-3 launch. The Sriharikota launch pad saw the launch of the LVM3 rocket. On Thursday, July 14, at 2.35 p.m. IST, the mission was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. The lander's voyage to the moon will take roughly 42 days.

After Chandrayaan-2 failed to soft-land, the most respected space agency spent nearly four years preparing Chandrayaan-3. In conjunction with numerous Indian enterprises, the space agency has created a new spacecraft using modern technologies. This successful launch will propel many developed and developing countries towards ISRO to launch their spacecraft and satellites, because of its low cost and high efficiency.
