Intersputnik warmly congratulates the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and its entire team led by ISRO Chairman Mr. S. Somanath on the success of the Chandrayaan-3 lunar mission.
On 23 August 2023, the lander Vikram with the lunar rover Pragyan of the Chandrayaan-3 mission, launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre on 14 July 2023, completed the first soft landing in the polar region of the Moon. This makes India the fourth country in the world whose spacecraft has landed on the surface of Earth's natural satellite.
"Intersputnik congratulates ISRO on the success of the Chandrayaan-3 lunar mission," said Intersputnik Director General Ksenia Drozdova. - This significant achievement of the Indian colleagues for all humankind once again confirms the highest qualification and commitment of the entire team working on the project, as well as the overall impressive level of space equipment and technology development in India. We are pleased that India is a member of Intersputnik and contributes significantly to its work for the benefit of all member countries. The entire multinational team of Intersputnik wishes ISRO a smooth continuation of this important mission, which enriches all people on the planet with knowledge about our universe."
