The Chandrayaan-3 mission, launched by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on July 14, 2023, from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh, marked a significant milestone in India’s lunar exploration efforts. The landing site of Chandrayaan-3’s moon lander, named ‘Station Shiv Shakti’ by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on August 26, 2023, has been officially recognized by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) on March 19, 2024. This recognition underscores the international community’s acknowledgment of India’s achievements in space exploration, particularly the mission’s successful soft landing near the Moon’s south pole, a region of strategic scientific interest.
