What It Looked Like When India Landed on the Moon

India’s Chandrayaan-3 mission landed on the moon on Aug. 23!!

There was no guarantee that the lander would make it in one piece. A previous Indian vehicle crashed in 2019 as it headed to the lunar surface, as did spacecraft from Russia and a Japanese company this year.

A three-minute video released this week by the Indian space agency shows how the Vikram lander descended, hovered, searched for a suitable landing site and finally touched down.
