Go India! Take The Moon!

Today is the day India will attempt to land their Chandrayaan-3:moon lander on the south pole of the moon. See BBC live updates HERE.

I wish them the best of luck.

The south pole of the moon is picked as the best place to land and set up a moon base because of ice, which is frozen water. People need water. AND daylight and darkness at somewhat regular intervals. Everywhere else on the moon, the sun comes up for 14 earth revolutions and then stays down for 14 earth revolutions. So there only one day a month on the moon, which would drive a human living there nutzo.

I’m excited about this. GO INDIA! Go planet Earth!

I don’t know what’s wrong with the north pole though. Everyone seems interested in only the south pole.

Have a great day!

UPDATE! Less than an hour after this post was posted, Chandrayaan-3 did indeed successful land as planned!

  1. Great for India and for mankind. I read that Russia’s spacecraft crashed into the Moon.
