Washington/New Delhi: The space agencies of the US and Europe on Friday congratulated the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on the successful launch of its third moon mission Chandrayaan-3. ISRO successfully launched Chandrayaan-3 using LVM3-M4 rocket from Satish Dhawan Space Center at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. LVM3-M4 is the largest and heaviest rocket in its class and is fondly called ‘Fat Boy’. European Space Agency (ESA) tweeted, “Congratulations to ISRO for this spectacular launch!” ESA said in a statement that it is providing support to Chandrayaan-3 through its European Space Tracking (ESTRAC) network of deep space stations. These are ground stations on Earth that help operators stay connected to spacecraft during missions outside space.

US space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) administrator Senator Bill Nelson also congratulated ISRO on the launch of Chandrayaan-3. He tweeted, “Congratulations to ISRO on the launch of Chandrayaan-3. Wishing it a safe journey to the Moon. I look forward to the scientific results of this mission.”

According to ISRO chief S Somnath, a ‘soft landing’ of Chandrayaan-3 has been planned on August 23 after reaching the desired altitude. Earlier India has launched Chandrayaan-1 and Chandrayaan-2. This launch is being described as a big success of the Indian Space Agency ISRO. The lander of Chandrayaan-3 will carry out scientific applications on the south pole of the Moon.
