India lands spacecraft Chandrayaan-3 on the Lunar Surface

India has become the first country in the world to land a space craft, Chandrayaan-3 on the Lunar Surface, setting YouTube, X (Twitter) on fire.

India has achieved a historic feat by successfully landing its Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft near the south pole of the Moon.

The unmanned mission, which launched on July 14, 2023, is the third lunar exploration mission by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

The Vikram lander, carrying the Pragyan rover, touched down on the lunar surface at 2:43 am IST (9:13 pm GMT) on August 23, 2023, after a tense 15-minute descent.

The lander and rover are expected to operate for one lunar day (14 Earth days) and conduct scientific experiments to study the Moon’s topography, mineralogy, exosphere and signs of water ice.

The historic landing was streamed live by ISRO and several media outlets, including YouTube and X (Twitter).

Millions of people around the world watched the event online and cheered for India’s achievement.

Many also took to Twitter to express their emotions and congratulate ISRO and the Chandrayaan-3 team.

Some of the notable tweets are:

  • @narendramodi: Congratulations to ISRO and the entire Chandrayaan-3 team for making India proud with this remarkable achievement. India is now among the elite nations that have successfully landed on the Moon. This is a testament to our scientific prowess and our spirit of exploration. Jai Hind!
  • @elonmusk: Congrats to ISRO on Chandrayaan-3 landing! This is a great milestone for humanity and a step towards making life multiplanetary. Looking forward to collaborating with ISRO on future missions.

  • @NASA: We congratulate ISRO and India on the successful landing of Chandrayaan-3. This is a significant achievement for lunar science and exploration. We look forward to working with ISRO and sharing data from our respective missions.
  • @priyankachopra: What a proud moment for India! Chandrayaan-3 has landed on the Moon! I am filled with joy and admiration for ISRO and the brilliant scientists who made this possible. You are an inspiration to us all. #Chandrayaan3
  • @neiltyson: India has joined the exclusive club of nations that have landed on the Moon. Well done, ISRO and Chandrayaan-3 team. You have shown that science knows no boundaries and that the sky is not the limit.

Chandrayaan-3 is India’s second attempt to land on the Moon, after Chandrayaan-2 failed to do so in September 2019 due to a communication loss with the lander.

Chandrayaan-2, however, managed to orbit the Moon and send back valuable data and images.

Chandrayaan-3 is also part of India’s ambitious space program, which aims to send humans to space by 2024, launch a space station by 2030, and explore Mars and Venus in the future.

YouTube Live Streaming:

Chandrayaan 3 set another record — this one on Googleowned video sharing platform YouTube.

The Chandrayaan3 live stream on YouTube made history as it reportedly became the most viewed live stream in the world.

More than eight million people are believed to have tuned in to witness the soft landing of Chandrayaan 3 on ISRO’s official YouTube channel, the highest-ever live viewership on a YouTube channel stream.

According to a report in sacnilk.com, Chandrayaan 3’s landing on ISRO’s YouTube channel broke the record of the stream.

The record-breaking YouTube stream was “Full Match: Brazil vs. South Korea during 2022 World Cup”.

The match saw 5,204,794 peak concurrent viewers.

The transmission took place on December 6 last year, courtesy of CazéTV, the report said.

According to another report in Stream Charts, the Brazilian creator’s YouTube channel CazeTV had around 6.15 million. However, the official figures are yet to be released.
