I Reached My Destination And You Too!: Chandrayaan-3s first message after landing on the Moon
At 6:04 pm, the lander, named after the Father of India's space mission, set its feet on the Moon
With Vikram lander's successful landing on the far side of the Moon, India on Wednesday became the first country in the world to achieve the feat.
At 6:04 pm, the lander, named after the Father of India's space mission, set its feet on the Moon, an event witnessed live by millions across the globe.
After landing on the Moon, Chandrayaan-3 sent a message to India, "India, I reached my destination and you too!"
Informing about the success of the mission, Isro posted on X, "Chandrayaan-3 has successfully soft-landed on the moon."
This comes four years after India's Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) failed to land on the Moon when Chandrayaan-2's lander crashed minutes before landing.
Chandrayaan-3 mission was launched on July 14 from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.
Till August 4, the spacecraft Isro continued to perform orbit-raising manoeuvres.
On August 5, Chandrayaan-3 was inserted into the lunar orbit.
Chandrayaan-1, India's first mission to the Moon, was launched on October 22, 2008, from Sriharikota Spaceport in Andhra Pradesh.
The spacecraft, carrying 11 scientific instruments built in India, the USA, the UK, Germany, Sweden and Bulgaria, orbited around the Moon at a height of 100 km from the lunar surface for chemical, mineralogical and photo-geologic mapping of the Moon.
