India’s Chandrayaan-3 Makes History; Becomes First Space Mission to Land on Moon’s Southern Pole

India has arrived on the Moon with the successful landing of the Lander Module of Chandrayaan-3, the third lunar mission from ISRO. It is now the first nation to have set foot close to the Moon's south pole.


After Russia, the U.S., and China, India became the fourth nation to successfully make a soft landing on the lunar surface with the Lander Module (LM) of the Indian Space Research Organization's (ISRO) third lunar mission Chandrayaan-3, which was launched on July 14. "India's successful moon mission is not India's alone," PM Modi stated in a statement after congratulating the ISRO team of scientists. Our philosophy of "one earth, one family, one future" is becoming increasingly popular everywhere. The same human-centric principles underlie the Moon mission.


Euphoric celebrations took place at the Mission Operations Complex (MOX) at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC), Bengaluru, precisely at 6.03 p.m. when the lander made contact with the lunar surface. The Lander then successfully deployed the Rover, which will conduct in-situ chemical analyses of the lunar surface as it is moving. With a mission length of one lunar day (14 days on Earth), the Lander and Rover include scientific payloads to conduct lunar surface investigations.


The mission's three goals, according to ISRO, are to show a soft and safe lunar surface landing, lunar rover wandering, and to carry out in-situ scientific research. What follows is what?

While the Indian space project is praised for getting so much done with such a small budget, C Raja Mohan contends that India will no longer be able to influence international action on the Moon by thrifty innovation. 


Educational and public institutions and groups around the nation planned special screenings of the spacecraft's landing on the Moon. The live broadcasts were made accessible by the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) on its official website, YouTube channel, Facebook page, and national broadcaster DD National.


In many regions of the nation, people also performed special prayers at temples, mosques, and gurdwaras for smooth landing, and a number of schools stayed open for an additional few hours so pupils could see the momentous occasion.
