Indian Chandrayan 2 mission comes to a halt 2 kilometres away from moon when Mody keeps watching


The Chandrayan - 2 mission which was planned to operate a rover on the polar surface of lunar thus anticipating a victory in Indian space technology sometime back ended up as a failure unfortunately last night and had to be given up as a result. India's space chamber says that the mission lost contact in communication when it was about 2.1 kilometres away from the moon and it further mentioned that it was at a moment when India's prime minister too was just about to be invited there to celebrate
the victorious occasion of landing on the moon. 

Mr. K. Sivan, chief of Indian Space Research Organisation said that data is being surveyed as to why this historic landing failed. Prime minister Mody too was present last night at ISRO headquarters, Bangalore when signals of this failure was observed at 1.55 in the dawn local time on Saturday. The relevant chief concerned later took steps to notify Mody about it. 

Whatever it is, Mody who was not disappointed with failure of this attempt made it a point to record a special message just for kicks, so to say. "The country is proud of you. You have taught something with all your effort. The best thing is hope ... you have carried out your duties well and have served science and humankind well", Prime minister Narendra Mody said. If this attempt turned out to be a success, India would go into the record books as the first country to have made a spacecraft land on a location which had not been subjected to research on the moon. About a month back Chandrayan - 2 spacecraft was tried to be used in this expedition without a human on board.
