Bengaluru: After Indian Space Research Organisation lost control with Vikram lander, Twitter was outpouring with encouraging message to the Indian scientists. Tweets like ‘Dear ISRO we love you to the Moon and back” and ‘We just lost communication not hope” were heart touching.
A few experts on space research termed that it is not a failed mission and Vikram lander with Pragyan in it is still orbiting the moon and has a life span of a year.
If Vikram failed to land – which it looks like – REMEMBER the ORBITER is where 95% of the experiments are. The Orbiter is safely in Lunar orbit and performing its mission. This is not a total failure. Not at all. #Chandrayaan2 #India #MoonLanding #VikramLander

BJP senior leader Smriti Irani said “Journey of Chandrayaan2 so far and what lies ahead is no less than an achievement. We are proud of our scientists and confident that India’s space programme only gets stronger and better from here. Inspired nation stands with team ISRO,”
Personal note on today’s events: Its just heart wrenching. A lot of people put their hearts and lives into both those intrepid little ships. The Orbiter is still there and working so the #Chandrayaan2 mission still goes on. pic.twitter.com/eczv5UKX8l

After a failed attempt to conquer Mount #Everest Sir Edmund #Hillary remarked, “I will come again and conquer you because as a mountain you can’t grow, but as a human I can.” Rest is history and lesson is to keep trying until you achieve your #dream.
