Chandrayaan 3 landed on the lunar surface at 6:04 PM IST. The live feed shared by ISRO was watched by over six million people. As soon as the Vikram lander successfully soft-landed on the moon, the ISRO station erupted with cheers and claps. Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the scientists for their hard work.

ISRO tweeted, “Chandrayaan-3 Mission: ‘India, I reached my destination and you too!’ : Chandrayaan-3. Chandrayaan-3 has successfully soft-landed on the moon! Congratulations, India!”
