India Shows That Conquering the Moon Doesn’t Have to Cost Billions – They Did It Cheaper Than Two Hollywood Movies

MOVIE NEWS – India made history when it successfully landed on the Moon with the Chandrayaan-3 mission. The South Asian country not only became the fourth in the world to achieve this, but also did it with such a low budget that it was less than two successful sci-fi movies. The Chandrayaan-3 project cost only $124 million, which was less than Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and Ridley Scott’s The Martian.

 

The Chandrayaan-3 is a spacecraft that aimed to explore the Moon’s south pole. The spacecraft included a lander and a rover, which arrived on the lunar surface on August 23. The lander was named Vikram and the rover was named Pragyan. The rover’s task was to examine the Moon’s soil composition and look for traces of ice. The mission was launched from Earth on July 14 with a GSLV Mark III rocket.

The mission was not only important from a scientific point of view, but also from a national pride point of view. India proved that it can compete in space exploration with the United States, Russia and China. Moreover, it did all this with a low budget that was even less than two Hollywood movies. The Chandrayaan-3 project cost only $124 million, which was less than Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar ($165 million) and Ridley Scott’s The Martian ($108 million).

The two movies were similar to Chandrayaan-3, as they both dealt with space travel. The main character of Interstellar was Matthew McConaughey, who went on a space mission with a team of astronauts to save humanity from a dying Earth. The movie was a big hit among critics and audiences and won several Oscars. The Martian starred Matt Damon, who was left alone on an alien planet during a Mars expedition and had to fight for survival. The movie also received great acclaim and won several Golden Globes.

The Chandrayaan-3 was therefore not just another step in India’s space exploration, but also an example of how conquering the Moon does not have to cost billions. India showed that it can do a successful mission with less money than two Hollywood movies.
