On Saturday evening, NASA took to Twitter to shower the praises for Indian Space Research Organisation’s attempt to land its Chandrayaan 2 mission on the South Pole of Moon. NASA wrote on the wall of Twitter, “Space is hard. We commend @ISRO’ attempt to land their #Chandrayaan2 mission on the Moon’s South Pole. You have inspired us with your journey and look forward to future opportunities to explore our solar system together.”
National Aeronautics and Space Administration – NASA also appreciated ISRO by saying that ‘we will explore solar system together’. When NASA spends more than Rs 8000 crores to send a mission to moon, our country India tried that in under 1000 cr.
Chandrayaan 2 was launched on 22nd July, since then not only India but the whole world watched its progress from one phase to the next with the great expectations.
The communication with Vikram lander was lost in the wee hours of Saturday before its planned landing on the south pole region of the Moon. The Vikram lander successfully separated from Chandrayaan 2 orbiter on 2nd September. Chandrayaan 2 orbiter continues to orbit the moon. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also ISRO’s scientists by saying that India is with them.
