ISRO has shared a new video on its Twitter handle, showing the surface of the Moon in close-up, captured by the Vikram Lander’s LPDC, after the lander successfully separated from the propulsion module.
Vikram lander of Chandrayaan 3 has reached very close to the moon. The high-tech camera installed in the lander also sent the latest images of the moon, the video of which was shared by ISRO on its official Twitter account. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said on Thursday that the lander module and the propulsion module of Chandrayaan 3 have been separated.
After this ISRO was informed that the health of the lander module (LM) was normal. The LM successfully underwent a deboosting operation that reduced its orbit to 113 km x 157 km. The second deboosting operation is scheduled for August 20, 2023.
LPDC is basically a camera, whose full name is Lander Position Detection Camera. (Lander Position Detection Camera) LPDC is installed in the lower part of Vikram Lander. These are placed so that Vikram can find a suitable and flat place for landing. With the help of this camera, it can be seen that the Vikram lander is neither landing on any rough place nor going into any pit i.e. crater.
This camera is very important as this camera can be turned on shortly before landing. Because looking at the picture that has come now, it seems that this camera was switched on for trial. So that the picture or video can get an idea how well it can work. This sensor was also used in Chandrayaan-2, it also worked properly.
LPDC’s job is very important to find a suitable landing spot for Vikram. The Lander Hazard Detection and Avoidance Camera (LHDAC), Laser Altimeter (LASA), Laser Doppler Velocitymeter (LDV) and Lander Horizontal Velocity Camera (LHVC) will work together with this payload. So that the lander can be landed on a safe surface. Chandrayaan 3 Video
