ISRO’s Chandrayaan-3 Successfully lands on the Moon!!!

Filed under: Astronomy / Space — Suramya @ 6:33 PM

We did it!!!! India made it all the way to the moon on its home grown Spacecraft and successfully achieved a soft landing on the Moon! This is a proud day for India and Indian’s world wide. We achieved something that only a few other countries have achieved so far and now India’s ambition to put up our own orbital station doesn’t seem that far fetched anymore…

The Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO’s) Chandrayaan-3, which takes its name from the Sanskrit word for “mooncraft”, took off onboard a Launch Vehicle Mark-III rocket from the southern state of Andhra Pradesh on 14 July and has spent six weeks covering about 380,000 kilometres en route to the moon. It was a remarkably smooth landing process to the point that it wasn’t immediately apparent that it had touched down…

The news conference is ongoing: ISRO Live Telecast

Will post a more detailed post with my thoughts later on but for now: We are on the MOON!!!

Jai Hind!
