The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on Monday released unseen images taken by the Lander Hazard Detection and Avoidance Camera (LHDAC) onboard Chandrayaan-3. The pictures released by the national space agency are of the Lunar far side area.
“Here are the images of the Lunar far side area captured by the Lander Hazard Detection and Avoidance Camera (LHDAC),” ISRO said in a post on twitter.
“This camera that assists in locating a safe landing area — without boulders or deep trenches — during the descent is developed by ISRO at SAC.
This camera is developed by the Ahmedabad-based Space Applications Centre (SAC), a major research and development centre of the Indian Space Research Organization.
The national space agency also informed that several advanced technologies are onboard the Lander such as LHDAC in order to achieve the mission objectives of Chandrayaan-3.
Meanwhile, ISRO announced the landing date and time for the Chandrayaan-3 mission. According to the latest announcement, Chandrayaan-3 is set to land on the moon on August 23, 2023 (Wednesday), around 18:04 IST.
The spacecraft is now just three-day away from its final destination, the moon’s south pole.
