India’s Chandrayaan-3 mission lands on the moon.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has successfully landed its Chandrayaan-3 Vikram lander on the moon, making India the first country to reach the lunar south pole.

The Vikram lander of Chandrayaan-3 collides with the moon’s surface, just days after a Russian lunar probe crashed in the same location.

According to Al Jazeera, the Chandrayaan-3 – “moon craft” in Sanskrit – blasted off from a launchpad in Sriharikota, southern India, on July 14.

Chandrayaan-3 consists of an indigenous Lander module (LM), a Propulsion module (PM), and a Rover designed to explore and demonstrate new technologies required for interplanetary missions.

The Vikram lander is named after Vikram Sarabhai, who is credited with establishing India’s space program.

The Vikram lander is capable of landing gently at a predetermined lunar area and deploying the Rover, which will conduct on-site chemical investigation of the lunar surface throughout its mobility.

India’s aerospace programme is fairly low-budget, although it has grown dramatically in size and velocity since it launched its first lunar orbiting mission in 2008.
The most recent trip cost $74.6 million, which is much less than that of other nations and demonstrates India’s frugal space engineering.
