India sent its first spacecraft to the moon on 22nd July,2019 at 14:43 IST from Satish Dhawan Space Centre. Chandrayaan 2 is the first Indian mission to explore the lunar terrain with home-grown technology and the first mission to land on the Moon’s south polar region.
ISRO launched the Chandrayaan 2 with the objective to explore Moon’s south polar region and which will help us to understand the development of our solar system.
The craft reached the Moon’s orbit on 20 August 2019 but on Sept 5 the Vikram lander went out of contact with the mission command center in Bengaluru when it was just 2.1 km above the lunar surface and was attempting to land near the south pole of the Moon.
These events resulted in a meme fest on Indian social media sites :
