Chandrayaan-3’s lander touches down on the lunar surface, making India the first country to successfully land a spacecraft near the Moon’s south pole, APA reports citing BBC.
All previous missions to the Moon have touched down near the equator - but exploring the south pole is key to the hunt for water.
Scientists now hope to deploy a rover to send images and data back to Earth - stick with us for updates.
"India is now on the Moon," beams India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, addressing the Isro control room.
He is in South Africa right now, he says in Hindi, but he says his mind is with Chandrayaan-3 like everyone else in the country.
He congratulates the Isro control room and all other Indians for this momentous achievement.
