India’s Pursuit of Lunar Excellence
India’s aim is to achieve a gentle landing on the moon’s surface, following in the footsteps of the United States, Russia, and China. ISRO expressed that this soft landing marks a significant achievement that not only ignites curiosity but also nurtures a passion for exploration among the youth. This accomplishment instills pride and unity as India celebrates its scientific and technological prowess. The success of Chandrayaan-3 will further encourage scientific inquiry and innovation.

Global Lunar Race
Around the world, space agencies are engaged in a race to reach the moon’s south pole, which is believed to contain frozen water. India’s attempt at a soft landing follows similar missions by other nations this year. The United Arab Emirates Rashid Rover, launched with Japan’s space’s Hakuto-R Mission 1 lander, experienced a setback as the lander lost connection and crashed due to altitude miscalculation. Russia also aspired for a south pole landing, but its Lunar-25 spacecraft encountered an unfortunate crash on the lunar surface.
