Which was launched on July 14. PM Modi expressed his congratulations to the ISRO science team and said: “India is not alone in its successful lunar mission…Our philosophy of “one earth, one family, one future” is becoming more and more popular everywhere. The lunar mission follows the same human-centered philosophy. This achievement thus belongs to all of humanity.
Euphoric celebrations took place at the Mission Operations Complex (MOX) at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC), Bengaluru, precisely at 6.03 p.m. when the lander made contact with the lunar surface. The Lander then successfully deployed the Rover, which will conduct in-situ chemical analyses of the lunar surface as it is moving. With a mission length of one lunar day (14 days on Earth), the Lander and Rover include scientific payloads to conduct lunar surface investigations.
