ISTRAC and MOX
In Bengaluru, there’s a special place called ISTRAC, where they help with Chandrayaan-3’s mission to the Moon. They have another important spot called MOX. These two places are like strong pillars supporting the mission.
ISTRAC takes care of things like sending signals, tracking the spacecraft, and giving commands from the time it starts flying until it finishes its work. They have stations in different places like Bengaluru, Lucknow, and even faraway spots like Mauritius and Indonesia.
MOX is part of ISTRAC and is there to help Chandrayaan-3, just like it did for Mangalyaan, Chandrayaan-1, and Chandrayaan-2. It’s a special place where they control and manage the mission.
