According to a Reuters report, the spacecraft lost touch shortly after it was shifted into pre-landing orbit on Saturday due to a glitch, according to Russia’s state space corporation Roskosmos.

According to a statement from Roskosmos, which was cited in the Reuters report, “The apparatus moved into an unpredictable orbit and ceased to exist as a result of a collision with the surface of the Moon.”

With India’s Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft set to touch down on the Moon’s south pole on Wednesday (August 23), all eyes will now be on India.

The Indian Space Research Organisation predicts that Chandrayaan-3 will touch down on the moon on August 23, 2023 (a Wednesday), at approximately 18:04 IST.

The spacecraft is currently three days away from reaching the south pole of the moon, its intended target.

India would become the fourth nation in the world to do a soft landing on the moon after the US, Russia, and China if ISRO succeeds in its mission.
