After India’s dream of reaching moon shattered, PM Narendra Modi hugged and consoled Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chief K Sivan after he broke down. ISRO in a tweet stated that “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 analyzed.” Likewise, Prime Minister Narendra Modi encouraged the scientists at ISRO centre in Bengaluru.

PM Modi while addressing scientists said, “Today I can proudly say that the effort was worth it & so was the journey. Our team worked hard, travelled far & these very teachings will remain with us. The learning from today will make us stronger and better.”

While encouraging the scientists he said, “We will rise to the occasion and reach even newer heights of success. To our scientists I want to say- India is with you. You are exceptional professionals who have made an incredible contribution to national progress.”
