Indian cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri hailed the scientists of ISRO (the Indian Space Research Organisation) after it lost contact with Chandrayaan-2’s lander Vikram.
Shastri took to his social media and tweeted along with a video of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech: “#India is proud of its #Isro scientists who have made us a world leader in Space Science. #Chandrayaan2 will inspire millions of Indian kids. Jai Hind.”
While addressing the nation, the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi said, “If we would have been defeated by our starting difficulties, we would not have become a premier space agency. Regardless of the result, I and all of India are extremely proud of our scientists and engineers.”
Further he added: “The learnings from today will make us stronger and better; there will be a new dawn. The best is yet to come in our space programme; India is with you. Countless people have got access to a better life due to the hard work of our space scientists. Our determination to touch moon has become even stronger, we came very close but we need to cover more ground.”
