India on Wednesday became the first country to land a spacecraft near the moon’s south pole. Scientists believe this historic voyage into uncharted territory may hold important frozen water reserves and technological triumphs for the world’s most populous nation. .
Although the moon landing attempt failed, India became the fourth country to reach this milestone, along with the United States, the Soviet Union and China. The lander carrying the probe landed on the moon at 18:04.
The launch sparked celebrations across India, including the southern Indian city of Bengaluru, with cheers and applause from space scientists watching the landing. The mission’s success demonstrates India’s growing technological prowess and space power, giving it the image Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to convey: an emerging power that claims its place among the world’s elite. It fits.
“India is now on the moon. India has reached the South Pole of the Moon. No other country has achieved this. “We are witnesses to history,” Modi said as he watched the landing from South Africa, where he was attending the BRICS summit, waving the Indian tricolor flag.
