India’s indigenous moon mission Chandrayaan-2 failed minutes before the ‘Vikram’ lander lost contact with the Indian Space research Organisation (ISRO) in Bengaluru on Saturday.
The ‘Vikram’ lander lost its contact 13 minutes after it began its final descent around 1.38 AM. The lander was in an attempt to make soft landing.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi present at the ISRO control centre boosted the morale of the ISRO scientists after ISRO chief K Sivan broke down following the lunar mission’s setback.
PM Modi said, the nation stands with you and your efforts. He said, this learning will make a better tomorrow.
