“There is a link between Earth, water, and moon as explained in the Vayu Puran. We can also find mention of the distance between Earth and Moon in Vishnu Puran and Bhagavad Gita. As per the Bhishma Parva or the Book of Bhishma, the sixth books in the epic Mahabharata, the diameter of the Moon is 11,000 yojana (1 yojana = approx 12.2 km), and its circumference is 33,000 yojana. These were some of the Vedic calculations that the scientists hoped to incorporate into the lunar mission,”
