The mission goals of Chandrayaan-3 include:
- To demonstrate a safe and soft landing on Lunar Surface
- To demonstrate Rover roving on the Moon
- To conduct in-situ scientific experiments
ISRO states that Chandrayaan comprises an indigenous Lander module (LM), Propulsion module (PM), and Rover. Its primary objective is to develop and showcase new technologies essential for interplanetary missions. The Lander is designed to execute a soft landing at a predetermined lunar site and deploy the Rover. The Rover’s main task will be to conduct an in-situ chemical analysis of the lunar surface while moving across the terrain.
