The event provides a unique opportunity for individuals to share the excitement with fellow space enthusiasts. The chance to collectively experience thrilling moments is expected to be a highlight.

ISRO's Chandrayaan-3 mission aims for a significant milestone: successfully landing the Lander Module (LM) on the lunar surface on Wednesday evening. If successful, India will become the fourth nation to achieve this and the first to reach the Moon's uncharted south pole.

Launched in July with a budget of Rs 600 crore, Chandrayaan-3 used the Launch Vehicle Mark-III (LVM-3) rocket. The journey took 41 days, bringing it near the lunar south pole.

Chandrayaan-3 follows the 2019 Chandrayaan-2 mission, where scientists aimed for a soft landing on the moon. Unfortunately, the Chandrayaan-2 module, named Vikram after India's space program founder, crashed in September 2019. The intended landing was unsuccessful, with communication lost at about 2.1 kilometres above the lunar surface.

The entire nation is eagerly anticipating this mission, with billions of people praying and offering their pujas for the success of the lunar landing. Several celebrities, sportspersons and politicians have wished for the success of Mission Chandrayaan 3.
