As India continues to set new records in space missions, The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is receiving widespread appreciation across the country and the world.

Recently, A young child, on behalf of all the neighbours, gifted a mini Vikram Lannder model to ISRO Chairman S. Somnath.

The post, which was shared on X (formerly Twitter) by ISRO's retired director, Dr PV Venkitakrishna, mentions, "ISRO Chief Sri Somanath today had a surprise visitor; a young neighbour boy has handed over own made Vikram Lander model to the ISRO chief on behalf of all the neighbours."


The picture shared by Venkitakrishnan featured a smiling ISRO Chairman S. Somnath with the mini Vikram lander model in his hand, standing with the young child who gifted him the model.

The post has since gone viral and garnered the attention of netizens.

A user named Sanjivv Khanna wrote, "Born with talent". Another user wrote, "ISRO is a big motivator for the coming generation".

Needless to say, India became the first country to land on the south pole of the moon. Earlier this week, ISRO successfully launched India's first solar mission, Aditya-L1, from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. 

ISRO said Aditya L1 is carrying seven different payloads to have a detailed study of the Sun.

Notably, The mission was named after Surya - the Hindu god of the Sun who is also known as Aditya. L1 stands for Lagrange Point 1 - the exact place between the Sun and Earth where the Indian spacecraft is heading.
