Aug 25, 2023 02:05 PM IST

India's Chandrayaan-3 landing on the moon's south pole became the most-watched event on YouTube, with over 8 million concurrent viewers.

While India made history with the successful landing of Chandrayaan-3 on the south pole of the Moon on Wednesday, the Indian Space and Research Organisation (ISRO) created another record with its YouTube channel during the live streaming of the landmark event. With over 8 million concurrent viewers, the touchdown of Chandrayaan-3's lander module became the most-watched event on YouTube during live streaming. It even left behind the concurrent viewership of the football match between Brazil and South Korea during the World Cup 2022 quarterfinals, which had garnered 6.1 million views.

India took a giant leap in space missions as the Chandrayaan-3 lander module successfully landed on the moon’s south pole on Wednesday evening, making it the first country to have achieved the historic feat. After a failed attempt to land on the moon in 2019, India on Wednesday joined the elite list of countries to have successfully landed its spacecraft on the moon’s surface. Apart from India, the United States, the Soviet Union and China are the only three countries to achieve this milestone. India’s success comes just days after Russia’s Luna-25, which was aiming for the same lunar region, spun into an uncontrolled orbit and crashed.
