Chandrayaan-3 displays women power, says PM Moditext_fields
New Delhi: With a significant number of women scientists and engineers directly involved in Chandrayaan-3, the mission is a living example of women power, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, while addressing his monthly 'Mann Ki Baat' program.
"Many women scientists and engineers have handled many important responsibilities such as project director and project manager. When the capability of women power is added, the impossible becomes possible," he said.
The daughters of India are now challenging even space which is considered infinite, he said.
"When the daughters of a country become so ambitious, then who can stop that country from becoming developed," he added.
Mission Chandrayaan has become a symbol of the spirit of the 'new India', which wants to win under all circumstances and knows how to win in any situation. "We have soared so high because our dreams are big and so are our efforts," the Prime Minister said.
He further said that Chandrayaan-3's success is so big that any amount of discussion about it is not enough.
India's Moon mission Chandrayaan-3 touched down on the lunar south pole at 6.04 pm on August 23, propelling the country to an exclusive club of four and making it the first country to land on the uncharted surface.
With this touchdown on the Moon after a flawless 41-day voyage to script history, India is the fourth country to master the technology of soft-landing on the Moon after the US, China, and the erstwhile Soviet Union.
