Chandrayaan-3’s successful landing on the south pole of the moon made history for India. India became the fourth country, after the United States, Russia, and China, to touch the lunar surface with this landing. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) used X to discuss the lunar mission’s success.
“Chandrayaan-3 Mission: India, I reached my destination and you too!’ Chandrayaan-3 has successfully soft-landed on the moon! Congratulations, India,” the space agency wrote.
Many have obviously been ecstatic as a result of this news, and many have taken to social media to express their feelings. As many people expressed their happiness at this momentous occasion, a few said they were unable to contain their joyous tears.
Here’s what people on X are saying about ISRO’s successful moon mission:
Chandrayaan-3 is India’s third moon mission and is a follow up of Chandrayaan-2 that failed to land on moon in 2019. The Chandrayaan-3 mission lifted off from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, located in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh on July 14. On August 5, the spacecraft was successfully inserted into lunar orbit. Today, on August 23, it made a powered descent and landed on the lunar surface without a hitch. With this, India also became the first nation to land on the moon’s south pole. How are you celebrating this historic moment of India’s space journey?
