Why Chandrayaan-3 Launch Was Delayed By 4 Seconds

New Delhi: Chandrayaan-3’s lift-off had to be delayed by four seconds to avoid any possible collision with space debris and satellites, the Indian Space Research Organisation has revealed. “For LVM3-M4/ Chandrayaan-3, the nominal lift-off had to be delayed by 4 seconds based on COLA analysis to avoid close approaches between a debris object and the injected satellites in their orbital phase due to overlapping operational altitudes,” ISRO said in a recent post. The space agency asserted no concerning close approaches with other space objects were detected for the the country’s moon mission throughout its mission phases.
