In a video conference from South Africa, where he is participating in the 15th Brics Summit, Modi noted that in the agenda of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is the Gaganyaan mission for the first manned space flight, he added.
On the successful landing of the Vikram module of the Chandrayan-3 mission, the Prime Minister pointed out that this achievement also belongs to humankind, as it will help missions from other countries in the future.
He termed the event as an unprecedented moment that reflects India’s development and potentials.
Modi congratulated the Chandrayaan team, ISRO and all Indian scientists who worked tirelessly over the years for this moment, he said.
Thanks to the hard work and talent of our scientists, India has reached the South Pole of the Moon, where no other country in the world has ever been, he stressed.
He added that this new scientific step will propel India’s journey beyond the Moon’s orbit.
We will test the limits of our solar system and continue to work to realize the infinite possibilities of the universe for humanity, he said.
President Droupadi Murmu, in turn, said that India’s scientific feat shows how this nation has exploited its rich traditional knowledge along with modern science in the service of humanity.
