S Somanath, the head of ISRO, explained why Chandrayaan-3 chose to land near the moon’s South Pole

“We are getting close to the South Pole, which is at over 70 degrees”, he said. Due to its lower exposure to sunlight, the South Pole has an advantage. This trait offers the potential for deeper scientific investigation. The South Pole has garnered considerable interest from lunar researchers.

The South Pole has the promise for that desire because, in the end, when humans strive to find colonies and travel farther out, we seek the most ideal site. The scientists from the Indian Space Research Organisation who were a part of the trip were also introduced to him afterward. From South Africa, PM Modi joined the ISRO team in virtually witnessing the historic Vikram lander’s Moon landing. He was present at the 15th BRICS Summit at the time.
