After the nail-biting anticipation that followed previous attempts, Chandrayaan-3’s flawless landing has brought immense pride and inspiration to the nation.
This historic event marks a significant milestone not just for India’s space agency, the ISRO, but also for the global space exploration community.
India became the fourth country to achieve a soft landing on the lunar joining the USA, Russia, and China.
According to Wikipedia, the mission consists of Vikram Lander and Pragyan, a rover similar to Chandrayaan 2.
The information gathered from the moon’s surface and the rover’s investigations will help us understand the moon’s geological history, potential water resources, and other essential elements during one lunar day. One lunar day is equal to 14 days on Earth.
This achievement not only enhances our understanding of the moon, but it also inspires future generations to dream big, aim for the stars, and leave their mark on the cosmos.
