India has successfully landed a spacecraft near the moon’s south pole, a region believed to hold vital reserves of frozen water and precious elements.
The landing comes just days after Russia’s Luna-25 crashed while attempting to land in the same area.
India’s Chandrayaan-3 mission, which took off on July 14, aims to achieve a soft landing on the lunar surface and contribute to scientific exploration and innovation.
The mission is significant for India’s progress in space exploration and has generated excitement and unity among the population.
Many countries and private companies are interested in the south pole region due to its potential for future astronaut missions.
India’s previous attempt to land a spacecraft in the area in 2019 ended in failure due to a software glitch.
With India’s growing prowess in space and technology, the successful moon mission aligns with Prime Minister Modi’s vision of an ascendant India and could boost his popularity ahead of the upcoming general election.
The anticipation for a successful landing increased after Russia’s failed attempt and as China reaches new milestones in space exploration.
Other countries and private companies are also racing to land spacecraft on the lunar surface, with Japan and the US planning missions in the near future.
