Chinese scientist, Ouyang Ziyuan, who is known as the father of China’s lunar exploration programme, has claimed that ISRO’s path-breaking achievement of lunar landing is overstated. Chandrayaan-3 landed on the Moon surface on August 23 after embarking on its journey from Sriharikota on July 14.  The scientist told Chinese-language newspaper Science Times that the landing site, at 69 degrees south latitude, is not near the south pole. The south pole is defined at between 88.5 and 90 degrees, he said. Earlier last month, with the successful landing of the Chandrayaan-3 on the moon last month, India has become the first country to put a spacecraft near the lunar south pole and broke China's record for the southernmost lunar landing. S Jaishankar Hails Chandrayaan-3 Mission at UN General Assembly, Says World Saw Glimpse of What is to Come (Watch Video).
