Prime Minister Narendra Modi landed in Bengaluru early this morning after ending his diplomatic trip of South Africa and Greece. PM Modi met with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) during his tour, including conversations with S Somnath. PM Modi made key remarks about India’s space efforts at the ISRO Telemetry Tracking & Command Network Mission Control Complex in Bengaluru.

Addressing the gathering, PM Modi disclosed that the precise area where Chandrayaan-3’s lunar lander came down will henceforth be designated as ‘Shivshakti’. He went on to say that there is a scientific history of designating touchdown places in space missions, and India has named the site of Chandrayaan-3’s successful landing ‘Shivshakti’ in that spirit. This action, he added, honors the contribution of female scientists from India in Chandrayaan-3, harmonizing with India’s deep scientific and philosophical traditions.

Continuing his powerful pronouncements, PM Modi stated that the site of Chandrayaan-2’s lunar landing accident will be renamed Tiranga’. The significance of this name is derived from the Indian tricolor, which represents India’s tenacity and resolve in the face of adversity. PM Modi designated August 23 as ‘National Space Day,’ to be observed yearly, to commemorate India’s space achievements and growth.

Reflecting on India’s recent achievements in space exploration, PM Modi emphasized how projects such as the Mars Mission, the Moon Mission, and preparations for Gaganyaan have revived the nation’s youth’s enthusiasm. He encouraged the next generation to investigate and scientifically validate the astronomical ideas revealed in ancient Indian texts. Furthermore, PM Modi emphasized India’s expanding worldwide prominence in domains ranging from business to technology, with organizations such as ISRO playing critical roles in thrusting the country into the world arena.

In conclusion, Prime Minister Modi emphasized India’s progress from third to first place on the world stage. He highlighted the significant role that organizations like ISRO have played in accelerating this shift. The Prime Minister’s visit to the ISRO facility, as well as the sequence of announcements, not only recognize India’s achievement in space research, but also revive a feeling of national pride and motivate the country’s scientific community and young people to aspire for the stars.
