ndia has become the fourth country to land on the moon after its Chandrayaan-3 touched the lunar surface Wednesday. The craft, which means 'moon vehicle' in Hindi and Sanskrit, landed on the South Pole - beating the US, China and Russia to the unmapped region. For India, the successful landing marks its emergence as a space power as the government looks to spur investment in private space launches and related satellite-based businesses. Chandrayaan-3 is expected to remain functional for two weeks, running a series of experiments, including a spectrometer analysis of the mineral composition of the lunar surface to determine if there is water ice. #investment #series #india #hindi #after #south #space #for #the
