Narendra Modi consoles ISRO chief on failed moon mission
After years of hard work came to naught, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman K Sivan broke down as Prime Minister Narendra Modi was going to leave the organisation after India’s failed moon mission.
Despite a motivational speech to the loser team of Chandrayaan-2 by Narendra Modi, K. Sivan burst into tears.
Following the failed moon mission, the ISRO had announced that it had lost the communication with the lander minutes before its landing.
“This is Mission Control Centre. Vikram Lander descent was as planned and normal performance was observed up to an altitude of 2.1 km. Subsequently, communication from Lander to the ground stations was lost. Data is being analysed,” the ISRO tweeted.
The Indian nation had set their eyes on the Chandrayaan-2 (space mission) which was supposed to land on Moon on Friday, but according to the ISRO they had lost contact with the unmanned spacecraft about 2.1 km away from moon. The fate of the spacecraft is still unknown, but it is feared that it has been crashed.
India’s first moon mission in October 2008 Chandrayaan-1 had also failed.
Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry led the trolling against the moon mission and termed the Indian spacecraft a ‘toy’. He said Indian aircraft would have landed in Mumbai rather than on moon. He advised Indians to stop waiting for the moon and go to sleep.
After receiving scores of scornful remarks from Indian social media users, Fawad said they were abusing him as if he was the one who failed their moon mission. “Brother, did I ask you to spend 900 crore on these incompetent people?” he wondered.
