A X (formerly known as Twitter) handle of retired Director of ISRO P V Venkitakrishnan has posted that the voice of Valarmathi was given to the Chandrayan 3 as her final countdown announcement.

He said, “The voice of Valarmathi Madam will not be there for the countdowns of future missions of ISRO from Sriharikotta. Chandrayan 3 was her final countdown announcement. An unexpected demise . Feel so sad.Pranams!”

Chandrayaan-3, Aditya L-1 Mission 

In the latest of ISRO, Chandrayaan-3 was launched and made a smooth landing on Moon’s surface. This made Indian the fourth country to ever land on Moon and the first country to be stationed in its South Pole.

The Pragyan Expedition Vehicle is equipped with two important equipment: alpha particle X-ray spectrometer (APXS) and laser analysis spectrometer (LIBS).

Meanwhile on September 2, the ISRO has launched another mission called Aditya L-1. This spacecraft intends to land at Lagrange 1 between the Sun and Earth to study the solar planet. It will obtain information of the Sun’s nature that will help to conduct several studies regarding the planet and its impact on the Earth.

India is now all over the news and headlines of the global media for the Chandrayaan-3 Mission success as well as the launch of its news solar mission called Aditya L-1 Rover.

India is going forward with all its might and sensibilty in the field of science and space and all of that was possible beacuse of its scientists who work hard through all thick and thins as well as even the failures of missions that take years to be prepared.
