'India took a walk on the Moon': ISRO gives update amid India's celebration for Chandrayaan-3 success

New Delhi/IBNS: India is basking on the success of its lunar mission as Chandrayaan-3 soft-landed on the South Polar region of the Moon on Wednesday, leading the nation of 1.4 billion people basking in joy.

A day after India achieved a game-changing feat in India's space exploration, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has come up with an update.

An ISRO post on X reads, "Chandrayaan-3 ROVER: Made in India Made for the MOON! The Ch-3 Rover ramped down from the Lander and India took a walk on the moon ! More updates soon."

The scientists of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) burst into joy in the control room in Chennai, joining a proud nation, as chairman S Somanath  said: "India is now on the moon."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi joined the historic event virtually from South Africa where he is currently visiting to attend the BRICS Summit.

"This moment is historic, unprecedented. This moment is the moment of victory. This moment is the achievement of 1.4 billion people and a new consciousness of a new India. This is the dawn of a new India in the Amrit Kaal," said PM Modi.

"I congratulate from the bottom of my heart the scientists of ISRO," he said.

On Tuesday, ISRO said Chandrayaan-3 mission is on schedule and sailing smoothly for a soft landing on the South Polar Region of the Moon.

The systems are undergoing regular checks and the Mission Operations Complex (MOX) was buzzing with energy and excitement.

The soft landing was a tricky and challenging task as it involved a series of complex manoeuvres that included rough and fine braking.

Prior to landing, imaging of the landing site was done for locating safe and hazard-free zones.
