Marking a monumental event in its space journey,
India scripted history by becoming the first country to explore the
South Polar region when its third Lunar Mission Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft
successfully soft landed on the Moon’s surface on Wednesday evening.
The powered descent of the Lander Module (LM), carrying a Rover, on board
the Chandrayaan-3, started at 5.44 pm and after the challenging task of
performing rough and fine braking maneuvres, it made a soft landing on
the moon’s surface at 6.00 pm.
