ISRO chief gave credit to scientists, told the result of hard work of generations
Bengaluru (EMS). Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) chief S. Somnath has given credit for the success of Chandrayaan-3 to all scientists. Expressing happiness on the completion of the mission, he said that we have gone through a lot of pain and suffering to achieve this achievement. He expressed confidence that in the coming years, ISRO’s vehicle will also land on Mars in a similar way. ISRO chief Somnath said the success of Chandrayaan-3 is the result of the hard work of generations of ISRO leadership and scientists and the success is “huge and encouraging”.
He said that the journey to the Moon is difficult and today it is a difficult task for any country to successfully land a vehicle on any celestial body, despite achieving technological capability. The ISRO chief said that India has achieved this success in only two missions. Mission Chandrayaan-2, the first attempt to land a vehicle on the Moon, failed at the last moment while Chandrayaan-3 mission was completely successful. Chandrayaan-1 was intended to be the only unmanned spacecraft to orbit the Moon.
Somnath said that the success of this Chandrayaan-3 mission will boost our confidence not only for the lunar mission but also for going to Mars. At one point there will be a soft landing on Mars and maybe in the future on Venus and other planets too, this attempt will be made.
He said that Chandrayaan-3 is a difficult mission and we went through a lot of pain and suffering for it. The ISRO chief said that important scientists who worked for Chandrayaan-2 were also part of the Chandrayaan-3 team. He said most of the people who were with Chandrayaan-2 are with us and are helping us in Chandrayaan-3. They are part of it, they have gone through so much pain.
ISRO chief Somnath told that it was a completely ‘Make in India’ mission with world class equipment. He said that the technology that we have in Chandrayaan-3 is no less complex or inferior to any other technology that went to the Moon. We have the world’s best sensors, best-in-class instruments in Chandrayaan-3. PM Narendra Modi also connected online from South Africa to witness the completion of this complex mission and he too praised the efforts of the scientists.
