The Chandrayaan 3 mission being successful is a proud moment for every Indian. A teen reflects after watching the memorable landing live.
Today was an unforgettable day for me. I had the privilege of witnessing the landing of Chandrayaan 3, an event that has sparked a scientific revolution worldwide and put our country in the elite group of space explorers. This experience has reinforced my desire to become a space scientist. I don't just want to witness humanity's exploration of space; I want to contribute to it. Space is the future, and I feel lucky to be alive during this exciting time as we turn that future into reality. As we venture onto unexplored planets and navigate the infinite universe, we discover new ways for humanity to thrive and survive amidst the uncertainty of our planet's future. The implications of these activities for future generations cannot be overstated. While we may never be able to explore the entire universe (our strongest telescope can only 'see' about half of it), we will certainly unravel the mysteries of the infinite abyss we exist in.
As a person who is yet to explore the world, it makes me wonder about how huge the world is, and how it pales in comparison to the vastness of the universe. This realization fills me with excitement for my future, knowing that there is ample space for me to grow and thrive in this great expanse.
