The landing of Chandrayaan-3 on the Moon's South Pole is a major achievement for India. The South Pole is a relatively unexplored region of the Moon, and it is believed to contain water ice. The landing of Chandrayaan-3 will allow scientists to study this region in detail and learn more about the Moon's history and potential for future exploration.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also joined the ISRO at the landing time of Chandrayaan 3. He said it is a historic day for India's space sector and now we are on the moon, and also mentioned that the sky is not the limit.
