India Successfully Lands Chandrayaan-3 on the Moon

Chandrayaan-3 live updates: The ISRO mission created history by being the first to land on the lunar south pole. Only three other countries have ever conducted a soft landing on the moon.

Live coverage of the Chandrayaan-3 Moon Landing: The Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft has successfully landed after a 40-day voyage that began at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota. On August 23, at 6:04 p.m. IST, the Vikram lander achieved a soft lunar landing.

At 5.44 p.m. IST, ISRO initiated the autonomous landing sequence. The Vikram lander is now attempting a soft landing on the Moon utilising its inbuilt computers and logic. While mission controllers at ISTRAC will keep a tight eye on it, the lander’s onboard equipment will handle all of the heavy lifting.

The Chandrayaan-3 mission is the follow-up to the Chandrayaan-2 mission, which crashed into the lunar surface in 2019. The mission’s principal goal is straightforward: to demonstrate the space agency’s capacity to perform a soft landing on the Moon.

India has joined a small and exclusive club of countries that have successfully landed on the Moon. The club now has three members: the United States, the Soviet Union, and China.
