Modi’s ISRO visit: Congratulating the ISRO scientists on the historic lunar landing, PM Modi said they took the country to new heights.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with women scientists from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) involved in the ‘Chandrayaan-3’ project on Saturday, praising them for their critical role in the successful completion of India’s first lunar landing mission.
On Wednesday evening, India became the first country to successfully deploy a lander on the unexplored lunar South Pole.
On Saturday, PM Modi told scientists at ISRO’s Telemetry Tracking and Command Network Mission Control Complex in Bengaluru, “Women scientists played a key role in the success of the Chandrayaan-3 mission.” The ‘Shivkshakti’ point (the location on the lunar South Pole where the ‘Vikram’ lander landed) will motivate future generations to pursue science seriously and utilise it for the benefit of people. “The welfare of the people remains our highest priority,” PM Modi remarked amid applause from the gathering. – Modi’s ISRO visit
