The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scripted history as the Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft made a soft landing on the surface of the Moon on Wednesday evening. The spacecraft’s Vikram lander made the soft landing at 6.04 PM (IST), ending the disappointment over the crash-landing of the Chandrayaan-2 lander 4 years ago
With the mission’s success, India has become the 1st country to land a spacecraft in uncharted territory near the lunar south pole. India is only the 4th country in history to complete a soft landing on the Moon after the United States, the erstwhile Soviet Union and China. Prime Minister Narendra Modi called it a "joyous occasion" of great success and said "this success belongs to all humanity."
The Consulate of the Czech Republic in Chennai would like to congratulate all Scientists at ISRO for the successful work done and enabling India to create further history. We wish ISRO many more successful missions with India enabling a responsible Space foray for Humanity
