    As proud Indians, all of us were waiting for the success of Mission Chandrayan 2 for more than two months and the lander, Vikram, was supposed to land on the moon’s surface on the previous night. The reason most Indians could not sleep last night is the eagerness to watch the live landing. Most of us including the ISRO Chairman, Kailasavadivoo Sivan were disappointed after the space agency lost their connection with the lander Vikram which is named after the renowned scientist and astronomer Vikram Sarabhai. The moment when the connection was lost was indeed depressing, as it alarmed everyone if the mission had failed. But the after a few hours of of investigation, the ISRO Team has confirmed of the safety of orbiter.

    “Vikram lander descent was as planned and normal performance was observed up to an altitude of 2.1 km.”
