India created history on August 23 by becoming the first country to successfully land a spacecraft on the Moon’s South Pole. As Chandrayaan-3 made a soft landing on the Moon, scientists from the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) were lauded for their dedication in successfully accomplishing the mission at a reasonable budget estimated to be $75 million.

ISRO chairman S Somanath, who has been receiving tremendous adulation, was recently on an IndiGo flight where his name was announced on the flight’s PA system. Pooja Shah, an air hostess with IndiGo, shared the video on Instagram Wednesday.
