Mann ki Baat: PM Modi urges people to participate in ‘Chandrayaan 3 MahaQuiz’. Check details
Mann ki Baat News Updates: The ISRO is organising Chandrayaan 3 MahaQuiz on the MyGov platform part of the celebrations honouring India's remarkable feat.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged people, especially students, to participate in the ongoing Chandrayaan 3 MahaQuiz. "I will request students to participate in Chandrayaan-3 mahaquiz which will help them to explore about country's lunar mission," Modi said on the 105th episode of his monthly radio show ‘Mann Ki Baat’.
On August 23, India scripted history after the Indian Space Research Organisation's Chandrayaan-3 soft landed on the Moon's south pole. After landing, both the Vikram lander and the Pragyan rover, and payloads onboard had performed experiments one after the other so as to complete them within 14 Earth days (one lunar day), before pitch darkness and extreme cold weather engulfed the Moon.
The lander and rover — with a total mass of 1,752 kg — were designed to operate for one lunar daylight period (about 14 Earth days) to study the surroundings there. However, the ISRO is hoping they can be revived, now that the Sun has risen again on the Moon, and that they carry on with the experiments and studies there.
"When the lander of Chandrayaan-3 was about to land on the Moon, crores of people were simultaneously witnessing this event every moment through different mediums. More than 80 lakh people watched the event on ISRO's YouTube Live Channel - a record in itself. This shows how deeply millions of Indians are attached to Chandrayaan-3," Modi said on the show.
