Chandrayan 03 returned to earth.


India’s Chandrayaan-3 lunar mission spacecraft has returned to orbit around Earth and may help the country return samples from the lunar surface. The mission’s propulsion module was moved from an orbit around the Moon to one around Earth, the Indian Space Research Organization said in a statement. Isro’s initial plan was to study the Earth using the module’s “Shape” payload for about three months with the fuel it had in stock. But after more than a month of operation in lunar orbit after launch, it was confirmed that it had about 100 kg of fuel left. ISRO then decided to re-orbit the module to a suitable Earth orbit and continue observing the planet with its scientific instruments.
