Except that the landing site has none of these features, since it is not really a polar landing. When will @isro@twitter.com outreach stop selling it as a polar landing mission?

Look at those beautiful cone-shaped lava flows on the Moon! 😍

This excellent blog post explaining the rationale behind the new @elementary@twitter.com blog by @CassidyJames@twitter.com is exactly why I left @Medium@twitter.com too.
I don't code but I can @WordPress@twitter.com my way out and actually *own* my new blog, plus have a better design.

Tangent: Really love how mountains on the Moon are near-instantaneously formed as opposed to the slow processes on Earth.

Here's a peak from orbit at the Hadley mountain. Pun totally intended!
This week on , we cover the mountain near which NASA Apollo 15 astronauts landed.

From an arc-shaped central mountain to blocky craters, wrinkled ridges to lava-riddled rilles, Aitken crater has is all! Given its rich geology, @NASA@twitter.com had selected it as a landing site for the Constellation Program.

I watched the launch from @isro@twitter.com’s awesome new Launch View Gallery, just 6 km away!

The rocket plume was brighter than I thought! And the rumbling sounds were dramatic. 🚀

Looking forward to more to go again!

Hey @oyorooms@twitter.com, I just got a message and an automated call saying my prebooked and paid for hotel needs to be changed to another. When I try to do so, I get an error message. What the hell is going on? This is not a reliable service.

So happy that my article on what Apollo missions taught us about the Moon's origin has been featured on @exploreplanets@twitter.com for their special coverage! Right below @elakdawalla@twitter.com. 🤓

Here's to many more landings. 🚀🌕

Here's 's updated mission profile, with changes from the original one in bold. Landing date affected by only one day, now is Sep 7, 2019.

Hey @isro@twitter.com, asking people who came all the way to Sriharikota to watch the launch to re-register for the next one is not a great thing to do. Last time's passes should automatically be carried forward.

Seen here is the landing site for @NASA@twitter.com’s Apollo 11 spacecraft. On July 20, it will be 50 years since humans first landed on an extraterrestrial object.

I repeat: ISRO touting as a south pole landing mission is wrong. Conditions unique to polar regions (incl. permanently shadowed regions and longer sunlight periods) are prominent 80° onward, not ~70°.

Tune in as India takes a giant leap to where no country has gone before –– the Moon’s south polar region.

Hey @isro@twitter.com, the Earth and the Moon didn't form around a Black Hole..
Can't believe @isro@twitter.com got this wrong.. It's called the Sun.. :/

RT @isro@twitter.com

Which of these theories is correct? Is there a fifth alternative that no one else has considered? We are looking to find the answer to these questions and more through Chandrayaan 2 — the world’s first mission to the Moon’s south polar region!

Seen here is the targeted landing site for India’s first ever soft landing Moon mission, Chandrayaan-2. The spacecraft will launch on July 15, 2019.

Did you know there is a legit ✨particle accelerator✨in the basement of the Louvre museum!? I heard about this a few years ago, and have been dying to see it ever since.

Well mes amis, yesterday I DID!
