ISRO has deleted its latest post on X wherein it released pictures of Chandrayaan-3 lander taken by Chandrayaan-2’s Orbiter minutes after posting it.
After a 40-day journey into space, the Chandrayaan-3 lander, ‘Vikram’, touched down on the uncharted lunar South Pole on 23 August making India the first country to do so. As the Vikram lander carrying the Pragyaan rover in its belly touched down on the lunar surface, it marked a giant leap in India’s spacefaring journey providing a well-deserved finale to ISRO’s long years of toil. India has became the fourth country after the US, China, and Russia to have successfully landed on the moon’s surface.
