“…craft is on way to the Moon. In another few days it will go (the lander will soft-land on the Lunar surface),” ISRO Chairman Somanath S said earlier in the day while delivering the inaugural address to the Space Science Technology & AwaReness Training (START) programme 2023.

“I am sure that you will find something very substantial through this (Chandrayaan-3) mission as far as science is concerned,” he said.
