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.
