Wednesday witnessed India’s triumphant redemption, marking the end of a four-year journey since the setback of Chandrayaan-2.
Guided by ISRO, Vikram gracefully navigated the intricate interplay of gravity and speed, touching down on the Moon’s surface. At 6:04 pm today, history was inscribed as India achieved an unparalleled feat, successfully landing Chandrayaan-3 at the Moon’s south pole. Notably, this achievement comes hot on the heels of Russia’s Luna-25 probe crash in the same locale.
This monumental accomplishment cements India’s position as the pioneering nation to achieve a Moon landing at the Lunar South Pole. Chandrayaan-3 is a testament to India’s strides in space technology, drawing global attention for its audacity and innovative spirit.
