Yes, you heard it right – Chandrayaan-3 is the name, and lunar exploration is the game!!!!!
‘India, I reached my destination and you too!’
With the precision landing of Chandrayaan-3, India proudly claims the title of the world’s pioneering nation to successfully touch down on the enigmatic landscape of the Moon’s South Pole.
On a momentous Wednesday, India achieved a resounding success as it gracefully landed a spacecraft near the Moon’s elusive South Pole, a realm that promises untold treasures of frozen water and precious elements, further solidifying the nation’s burgeoning supremacy in the realms of space and technology. With a lander cradling a rover nestled within, this historic touchdown occurred precisely at 6:04 local time, igniting a symphony of cheers and applause from the enraptured space scientists gathered in Bengaluru, the southern jewel of India. Emerging victorious from a past setback almost four years prior, India etched its name in the annals of history by being the first to grace the uncharted territory of the South Pole, joining the esteemed ranks of the United States, the Soviet Union, and China in the exclusive league of lunar conquerors.
