Puri (Odisha) [India], August 23 (ANI): As Chandrayaan-3 is all set to create history by landing on the uncharted south pole of the Moon today, the team of sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik extends best wishes with his latest artwork.
Chandrayaan-3’s Lander Module (LM) – lander Vikram and rover Pragyan – is scheduled to make a touch down near the lunar south pole at 6.04 pm on Wednesday.
Pattnaik in his sand art has shown Chandrayaan-3 making a successful landing on Moon’s south pole with an Indian flag placed there. “All the best Chandrayaan” is also written on the base of the art, while at the top left one can see “Jay Ho Isro” written.
As the Chandrayaan-3 mission, launched by ISRO on July 14, 2023, inches closer to its lunar landing, people from all corners of the country are collectively holding their breath in eager anticipation.
The nationwide fervour is a testament to the unity and hopes that Chandrayaan-3 embodies. Remembering the lessons of the past, particularly the setback of Chandrayaan-2, the nation’s prayers are directed towards a triumphant landing this time around.
On August 23rd, the Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft is poised to make its historic touchdown on the Moon’s surface, marking a pivotal moment for India’s space exploration endeavors.

India will be the fourth country in the world to achieve this feat after the United States, Russia, and China, but India will be the only country in the world to land on the lunar south pole. (ANI)
