Congress President Sonia Gandhi tonight congratulated the country's space scientists for their spectacular achievement in placing the tricolour on the moon's surface.

"This is indeed a historic moment and we are proud of our scientists," the UPA Chairperson said.

India marked its presence on moon tonight to scale this historic milestone after a Moon Impact Probe with the national tricolour painted on it crashed on the lunar surface after being detached from the unmanned spaceprobe Chandrayaan-1.
