The Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft achieved a gentle touchdown in the vicinity of the moon’s south pole, marking a significant achievement for India. This accomplishment solidifies its position as the fourth country to successfully execute a lunar landing. The Chandrayaan-3 mission represented India’s second endeavour to achieve a landing in the moon’s southern polar region — a largely unexplored area of substantial curiosity for both scientists and enthusiasts of space exploration. The noteworthy landing event was extensively covered live by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and was broadcast by their national broadcaster, Doordarshan.
