India’s Chandrayaan-3 Mission Successfully Lands on the Moon- A Historic Achievement


India just made history by successfully landing a spacecraft Chandrayaan-3 Of Moon. As a result, India’s space industry is expected to skyrocket.

This was disclosed by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi that India’s space industry will grow from USD 8 billion to USD 16 billion in the coming years.

This growth, said Modi, reflects the country’s strong aerospace sector.

Previously, Russia had just failed to land their vehicle on the moon. Of course, this news made India anxious, especially since India had failed to land its probe on Earth’s natural satellite in 2019.

However, these worries did not materialize and India carved gold ink to bring it on par with the United States, the Soviet Union and China.

“India is on the Moon! Our national pride is placed on the Moon!,” Modi said, praising the achievement of the mission Chandrayaan-3 quoted from Live Mint, Saturday (26/8/2023).

In front of scientists of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Modi said that the success of the Chandrayaan-3 mission did not rule out the possibility of opening missions to the moon by other countries.

Modi also declared August 23 as National Space Day in honor of the Chandrayaan-3 soft landing on the Moon.

Chandrayaan-3 has landed at nearly 70 degrees south latitude, the first mission to land on the Moon’s South Pole which is very exciting.

The space agency’s interest in the area is due to the presence of permanently closed craters where the presence of molten ice was detected from orbit.

Due to the small tilt of the Moon, the poles have cold traps that light never reaches, and 60% of these are found beyond the 80 degree latitude at the South Pole.

This is one reason NASA’s Artemis 3 mission aims to land humans there within a few years, but it seems India will get a chance to explore it first.

Meanwhile, to carry out the Chandrayaan-3 mission, India has to spend at least 6 billion Rupees or the equivalent of USD 73 million (Rp 1.1 trillion).
