23 August, 2023, 6.04 pm! The exact time when history was created. The hopes and dreams of 1.40 billion people finally came true, when Chandrayaan-3 touched down on the lunar South Pole. Lander Vikram landed there in its scheduled time. And India’s Mission Moon finally became a mission accomplished!
It is a giant leap for India’s space programme, making India the first country in the world to land on the south pole of the Moon. Plus, it has propelled the nation to an exclusive club of four – along with Russia, USA and China – to land on the uncharted surface.
This great success of soft-landing on the Moon led to an atmosphere of excitement and celebration across the country. Indian Space Research Agency (ISRO) has again established itself as one of the leading space agencies in the world. In 2008, India’s first lunar mission Chandrayaan-1 detected evidence of the presence of water on the moon while orbiting it. In 2019, Chandrayaan-2 crashed while making soft landing on the surface of the moon. But, NASA discovered the debris of its Lander. Chandrayaan-3 is the follow-up mission of Chandrayaan-2 with the primary objective to perform a safe and soft landing on the lunar surface, which has been accomplished. As the countdown began for descent and landing, there were palpable tension in ISRO, which finally gave way to eruption of shouts of joy and clapping!
That was ISRO celebrating its success. Let us now see how bureaucrats celebrated this milestone in India’s space research.
IAS Association saluted the scientists and called them true heroes.
