India achieves historic milestone as the first nation to successfully land a spacecraft on the Moon’s South Pole, following Russia’s unsuccessful attempt.

Chandrayaan-3 had the ambitious goal of being the first spacecraft to make contact with a lunar region suspected to harbor deep craters containing water ice.

It successfully touched down six weeks after launch, departing from a spaceport in Andhra Pradesh.

The momentous landing prompted celebrations and applause from the mission control team at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre.


During the landing, Prime Minister Narendra Modi participated in a conference call at the space center.

He proudly waved an Indian flag upon the spacecraft’s touchdown and delivered an inspiring speech to the Space Research Organisation,

emphasizing the significance of this achievement for India and its people.

He highlighted how India’s accomplishment extends beyond national boundaries, encouraging global aspirations for lunar exploration.


Prime Minister Modi also announced India’s intention to explore the possibility of future human missions to the moon.

The event captured the attention of thousands of individuals across India who eagerly awaited the mission’s outcome from various settings.


Following its successful landing, Chandrayaan-3 is expected to operate for a limited period of two weeks, conducting a series of experiments to analyze the moon’s surface mineral composition.

To facilitate these tasks, a rover carried by the spacecraft’s two-meter-tall lander will play a crucial role.


The mission’s focus on water ice holds immense significance, as this resource could potentially serve as fuel, oxygen, and drinking water in future lunar endeavors.

The insights gathered from Chandrayaan-3 will contribute to the groundwork for establishing a permanent lunar base.


India’s achievement stands in contrast to Russia’s unsuccessful attempt, where the Luna-25 spacecraft crashed during its moon landing endeavor.

India’s past attempts faced challenges due to the rugged terrain of the moon’s south pole, making successful landings difficult.
