Johannesburg (August 23,2023) : Prime Minister Narendra Modi will join the Chandrayaan-3 landing event from South Africa, where he is on a three-day visit. The landing is scheduled to take place at 6:04 pm IST on Wednesday. Modi will be joined by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chairman, S. Somanath, and other senior officials at the event. The landing will be streamed live on the ISRO website and YouTube channel.

Chandrayaan-3 is India's third lunar mission. The first, Chandrayaan-1, was launched in 2008 and the second, Chandrayaan-2, was launched in 2019. Chandrayaan-2's lander, Vikram, lost contact with the ground station during its final descent to the moon.

The success of Chandrayaan-3 would be a major milestone for India's space program. It would be the first time that India has soft-landed a spacecraft on the moon. The mission would also pave the way for future lunar exploration missions by India. The landing of Chandrayaan-3 is a major event for India and for the global space community. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the ISRO scientists and engineers. The success of the mission would be a proud moment for India and would boost the country's space program.
