Some of the posts with such a claim can be seen here and here. This video is extremely viral on YouTube with the same claim. The words ‘Chandrayaan-3’ and ‘soft landing’ can also be seen displayed over the video.

What is the truth?

When reverse searching the keyframes of the viral video we found that the video is old and unrelated to Chandrayaan-3. A Youtube channel named ‘Hazegrayart’ uploaded this viral video as ‘shorts’ on 20, July 2023. The video is titled ‘Apollo 11 Moon Landing’. The description part also mentions about Apollo 11 moon landing and the crew details.

The full-length video link was given in the comments section of the shorts. This full video was uploaded on the same channel in June 2021 with the title describing as Apollo 11 moon landing. This proves that the viral video is old and unrelated to Chandrayaan-3.

Moreover, the ISRO Facebook page published a live video during the landing of Chandrayaan-3 and we found the video of the rover ramping down from the Lander to the lunar surface on ISRO’s X page. We could not find any visuals matching the viral video in either of the ISRO videos.

Youturn covered the misinformation that are being shared relating to Chandrayaan-3 which can be read here.
