The journey of Chandrayaan-3 has been nothing short of remarkable. Launched 22 days ago, it embarked on a complicated 41-day voyage to the lunar south pole, a region that has never been explored by any other country before.

This ambitious mission has cost the Indian space agency around Rs 600 crore, making it a significant investment in space exploration.

During its journey, Chandrayaan-3 conducted a crucial maneuver that brought it closer to the Moon, and after the successful completion of this maneuver, it sent a message to ISRO saying, “I am feeling lunar gravity.”

However, Union Minister, Dr. Jitendra Singh also hailed the efforts of the ISRO.

“VIDEO: Here are the very first pictures of the Moon captured by #Chandrayaan3 as it draws closer to its destination. Proud of you India’s Space messenger, as the rest of the world looks at you with awe and envy. #ISRO,” he tweeted.
