Chandrayaan-3 successful Landing, India made history by landing first on Moon’s South Pole

Chandrayaan-3 mission, which was launched from India, made history by successfully landing on the moon’s south pole, an area that has not yet been explored but is likely rich in water ice.

India’s Space Research Organization’s (ISRO) Chandrayaan-3 mission has successfully touched down on the Moon following a 40-day journey that began at the Satish Dhawan Space Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.

On August 23, at 6:04 PM IST, the Vikram lander made a soft landing on the moon.

At 5:44 PM IST, ISRO initiated the automated landing procedure.

Chief of ISRO S Somanath claims that the landing was extremely soft because ISRO met most of the nominal requirements, including the touchdown velocity.

ISRO also stated that although ISTRAC mission controllers will be keeping a careful eye on it, the lander’s onboard systems will be handling all of the labor-intensive tasks.

Following the 2019 Chandrayaan-2 mission, in which the Vikram lander collided with the lunar surface, comes the Chandrayaan-3 mission. The mission’s main goal is to demonstrate to the space agency that it is capable of carrying out a soft landing on the moon.

India has now joined the US, China, and Russia as the only nations to have successfully completed a soft landing on the moon.

“This is a historic movement and sounds the bugle for a developed India. When we see such historic moments, it makes us very proud. This is the dawn of new India.”” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi, praising the efforts of the ISRO scientists.
