We have many missions lined up. Soon Aditya L1 will be sent to Sun. Work on Gaganyaan is also going on.

Waiting for rover to exit after successful landing
Now everyone is waiting for Pragyan Rover to come out from Vikram Lander. It will come out after the dust settles. It will take approximately 1 hour 50 minutes. After this Vikram and Pragyan will photograph each other and send it to Earth.
ISRO, the Indian Space Research Organization operating the Chandrayaan mission, launched Chandrayaan on 14 July from Sriharikota. On the 41st day, planning was done to land on the south pole of the moon.

This is the moment of new energy, new faith, new consciousness in India. It rained nectar in the time of immortality. We took a pledge on earth and made it come true on the moon. We have witnessed the new flight of new India in space.
Then this record would have been in the name of Russia
Before India, Russia was going to land Luna-25 on the south pole of the moon. This landing was to take place on August 21, but while changing the last orbit, it deviated from the path and crashed on the lunar surface.
It took 41 days to land on the moon
Chandrayaan-3 was launched from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh on July 14 at 3.35 am. It took 41 days to land on the lunar surface. The total distance of the Moon from the Earth is 3 lakh 84 thousand kilometers.
