Chandrayaan-3 from India successfully lands on the Moon

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has achieved a significant milestone by executing a successful landing of its Chandrayaan-3 Lander Module on the lunar surface. The Chandrayaan-3 mission was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota Range (SDSC SHAR), India, on the 14th of July 2023. Its primary objectives were to showcase advanced technologies and accomplish India’s inaugural soft landing on a celestial body, specifically the Moon.

After entering lunar orbit on the 5th of August, the lander module took a crucial step on the 17th of August when it separated from the propulsion module. Subsequently, it commenced its descent towards the lunar surface.

On the 23rd of August, after an anxious wait, ISRO officially confirmed that the Chandrayaan-3 lander had achieved a successful touchdown in the predetermined southern polar region of the Moon, in accordance with the mission plan.
