Last Thursday afternoon (July 20th), India successfully launched its second attempt (Chandrayaan-3) at landing an unmanned robot on the Moon--

"Coincidentally," in the 54th Anniversary "window" of Apollo 11's historic 3-day manned lunar stay, in 1969.

India's first attempt at an unmanned lunar landing, Chandraayan-2, was in 2019 -- with a lander named "Vickram" (after the founder of the Indian space program, Vikram Sarabhai).  Unfortunately, within seconds of Vickram's touchdown, its radio signal suddenly vanished ... dashing India's hopes for becoming the fourth nation (besides the United States, the Soviet Union and China) to successfully land a spacecraft on our "oversized" natural satellite.


This time -- with Chandrayaan-3 -- something RADICAL seems to have happened to India's planning; India, a) not only seems to be aware of what REALLY happened to their Vickram lander in 2019, but b) they have placed aboard the carrier rocket for Chandraayan-3 the ONE instrument which will allow them to "map the glass" in 2023 after they arrive, to successfully chart a "glass-free path" from orbit to a successful lunar landing.

And, we have every reason to believe they learned it all from--

US ... the Enterprise Mission!!

Find out "how" tonight.
