New Delhi, August 29, 2023: The Union Cabinet of India is rejoicing in the wake of the historic triumph achieved by the Chandrayaan-3 Mission, marking yet another monumental milestone in the nation's journey through the cosmos. The Cabinet expressed deep appreciation for the tireless efforts and unmatched dedication of the scientists involved in this remarkable feat, recognizing that this success not only crowns India's space agency but also symbolizes the nation's ascent on the global stage. As a tribute to this achievement, the Cabinet has designated August 23rd as the "National Space Day."

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is being lauded for its unparalleled contributions to space exploration. Thanks to the meticulous planning and execution by Indian scientists, India has become the first country to land in close proximity to the Moon's south pole. Such precision landing amidst challenging lunar conditions underscores the indomitable spirit and determination of India's scientific community.

The mission's rover, 'Pragyan,' promises to be a treasure trove of knowledge, set to unravel the moon's mysteries and potentially open doors to groundbreaking discoveries that transcend lunar confines.

In an era dominated by rapid technological advancements and a relentless pursuit of innovation, India's scientists shine as beacons of knowledge, unwavering dedication, and unmatched expertise. Their analytical prowess, combined with a fervent commitment to exploration, has consistently placed India at the forefront of global scientific achievements. Their dedication serves as an inspiration to countless others worldwide.

Of particular pride is the substantial involvement of women scientists in Chandrayaan-3 and India's broader space program. This accomplishment is anticipated to inspire countless aspiring female scientists in the years ahead.

The Cabinet also extends its heartfelt congratulations to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for his visionary leadership and steadfast support of India's space endeavors. His faith in the capabilities of Indian scientists has consistently motivated and fortified their resolve.

Prime Minister Modi's unwavering commitment to science and innovation has ushered in a series of reforms over the past nine years, simplifying research and innovation processes. The Prime Minister's emphasis on involving the private sector and startups in India's space sector, through initiatives like IN-SPACe, has been instrumental in enhancing India's presence in the global space economy. Moreover, his encouragement of hackathons has created numerous opportunities for India's youth.

The Cabinet also celebrates the naming of lunar points as Tiranga Point (inspired by Chandrayaan-2) and ShivShakti Point (Chandrayaan-3's landing site). These names beautifully bridge India's rich heritage with its modern scientific aspirations, creating a poignant connection between the past and the future.

The success of Chandrayaan-3 marks a watershed moment in India's space sector. It will pave the way for Indian startups and MSMEs, generating employment opportunities and fostering innovation. This success story will inspire the youth of India to explore the boundless possibilities of space.

Prime Minister Modi's pledge to use the knowledge gained from Chandrayaan-3 for the betterment of humanity, especially in the global south, echoes India's age-old belief in Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, the world as one family.

The Cabinet emphasizes that India's advancements in space are not just scientific milestones but a vision of progress, self-reliance, and global leadership. They symbolize the rise of a new India. Citizens are urged to harness these achievements to create opportunities across sectors, from satellite communication and meteorology to agriculture and disaster management, enhancing infrastructure, bolstering the digital economy, and providing vital data to various sectors.

In this age of science, technology, and innovation, the Cabinet calls upon educators to kindle the flames of curiosity and interest in the hearts of young students. The success of Chandrayaan-3 presents an unparalleled opportunity to ignite passion for science and inspire a new generation to explore the vast horizons of knowledge.

The Cabinet commends and appreciates every individual who contributed to this landmark mission. Chandrayaan-3 stands as a testament to India's potential when driven by passion, determination, and unwavering dedication. The Cabinet expresses its confidence that with hearts filled with joy and pride, the people of India will rededicate themselves to transform the nation into a developed powerhouse by 2047.
