India moon landing live news: Chandrayaan-3 makes space history

India moon landing ‘historic day’: PM Modi
As India became the first nation to land a craft near the moon’s south pole, Modi called it a “historic day”.

“Historic day for India’s space sector,” he wrote on the social media platform X, previously known as Twitter. Not India’s mission alone’
“India’s successful moon mission is not just India’s alone,” Modi says, adding that mission is based on a “human-centric” approach and its success belongs to all of humanity.

Lander continues ‘rough breaking phase’
The Lander is now travelling at an altitude of 22km (14 miles) and has covered a distance of more than 500km in its “rough breaking phase”.

No ground intervention is now being carried out and all information is being received by the deep space network.
