India's Lunar Mission: Aiming for Moon's South Pole

ISRO, launched a rocket on Friday, aiming to land a spacecraft on the moon's south pole and establish itself as a significant space power.

The rocket successfully placed the Chandrayaan-3 lander into an Earth orbit, setting it on a course for a lunar landing next month.

If successful, India will become the fourth country to achieve a controlled lunar landing, joining the United States, the former Soviet Union, and China.

The Chandrayaan-3 mission is of great interest to space agencies and private companies due to water ice at the moon's south pole, which could support future space exploration.

The launch was witnessed by over 1.4 million people on ISRO's YouTube channel, with many expressing congratulations and the patriotic slogan "Jai Hind" (Victory to India).

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his hopes for the mission, stating that it carries the aspirations and dreams of the nation.
