Well, ahead of the Chandrayaan-3 launch – the lunar exploration mission – the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Friday invited citizens to witness the launch. The launch can be viewed from the Launch View Gallery at SDSC-SHAR, Sriharikota.

But how will you get this chance? Simply by registering at lvg.shar.gov.in/VSCREGISTRATIO.

ISRO tweeted: “Vehicle electrical tests completed. Citizens are invited to witness the launch from the Launch View Gallery at SDSC-SHAR, Sriharikota, by registering at https://lvg.shar.gov.in/VSCREGISTRATIO."

Chandrayaan-3 will be launched on July 14, Friday, at 2.35 pm from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh, S Somanath, ISRO director, had announced. All those who want to witness the launch of Chandrayaan-3 can register at the given link.

On the launch of Chandrayaan-3, Somanath said, “On July 14 at 2.35 pm, Chandrayaan-3 will lift off, and if everything goes well, it will land (on the moon) on August 23...the date is decided based on when the sunrise is on the moon; it will depend on the calculations, but if it gets delayed, then we will have to keep the landing for the next month in September."

Chandrayaan-3 is a follow-up mission to Chandrayaan-2 with the objective of showcasing the complete capability to achieve a secure landing and conduct rover operations on the lunar surface.

The lander of Chandrayaan-3 is expected to soft-land on the surface of the Moon on August 23 or 24. S Somanath said ISRO's prime objective was to enable a safe and soft landing of Chandrayaan-3.

He said, “Our main objective is a safe and soft landing; all equipment will be fine if it goes safely and there is a soft landing. We are good with the landing system. Rover will come out after landing, the rover has 6 wheels, and we are expecting the rover will work for 14 days on the moon...With the support of multiple cameras on the rover, we will receive images. We have a solar panel on the rover. We already tested it, and we have good results with the battery."
