India became the first nation to land a spacecraft on the unexplored lunar South Pole on Wednesday night with the Chandrayaan-3 lander, “Vikram,” which had travelled into space for 40 days.
The Prime Minister additionally saw the Chandrayaan-3 landing live online from South Africa.
India is currently on the moon, according to PM Modi, who praised the Chandrayaan-3 mission for making history by landing safely on the lunar surface.
“When we see such historical events, we are quite proud. The dawn of a new India is here, he declared.
“Humne dharti par sankalp kiya aur chand pe usse sakaar kiya…India is now on the moon,” he continued.
The US, Russia, and China were the first three countries before India to successfully conduct a lunar mission.
