India First Country Who Successfully Land On South Pole Of Moon. Congratulates PM

As soon as the sun rose on the moon on the evening of 23 August, ISRO’s Chandrayaan created history by landing on its south pole. India has become the first country in the world to successfully land on the south pole of the Moon.

Chandrayaan-3 started the landing process on Wednesday evening at 5.44 pm. After this, in the next 20 minutes, it completed the journey of 25 km from the final orbit of the Moon. The lander of Chandrayaan-3 took the first step on the moon at 6:40 pm.

ISRO told that all the sensors of the lander-rover are being tested. If all goes well, the rover will be taken out after 3-4 hours by giving a command from ISRO. If things do not happen on a fixed scale, then the decision to take out the rover will be taken after 24 hours.

ISRO director S. Somnath said- The next 14 days are very important for us. It may also take a day for the Pragyan rover to come out. Pragyan will give us information about the atmosphere of the moon. We have many missions lined up. Soon Aditya L1 will be sent to Sun. Work on Gaganyaan is also going on.

After reaching the moon, Chandrayaan-3 sent a message – I have reached my destination. While congratulating the countrymen from South Africa, Prime Minister Modi said – now Chandamama is not far away.

With this success, India
has become the fourth country to land a mission on any part of the moon. Earlier only America, Soviet Union and China could do this.

It took 20 minutes for the soft landing of Chandrayaan-3’s lander. This duration was being called ’20 minutes of terror’ i.e. ’20 minutes of fear’. These minutes of terror started at 5.44 pm. Then the moon was 31 km away from the lander. Its vertical landing process started.

Later Pragyan rover came out from Vikram Lander. It came out after the dust settles. After this Vikram and Pragyan photograph each other and sent it to Earth.

ISRO, the Indian Space Research Organization operating the Chandrayaan mission, launched Chandrayaan on 14 July from Sriharikota. On the 41st day, planning was done to land on the south pole of the moon.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the scientists by joining video conferencing. He said:

This moment is of India’s strength. 

This is the moment of new energy, new faith, new consciousness in India.

It rained nectar in the time of immortality. We took a pledge on earth and made it come true on the moon. We have witnessed the new flight of new India in space.
