Chandrayaan 2: Chinese netizens praise India’s moon-mission, ask scientists not to lose hope
Chandrayaan 2 latest news: Chinese netizens have praised the Indian scientists involved in the country’s second moon mission and asked them not to lose hope and continue to explore the universe undeterred by the loss of communication with Chandrayaan-2 lander ‘Vikram’, official media here reported on Monday. India’s bold mission to soft-land on the moon suffered a setback with the ‘Vikram’ module losing communication with ground stations, just 2.1 km from the lunar surface during its final descent in the early hours of September 7.
An ISRO official on Monday said Chandrayaan-2’s lander Vikram is unbroken but lying tilted on the surface of the Moon after a hard landing very close to the scheduled touchdown site. Several Chinese netizens on China’s Twitter-like Sina Weibo encouraged Indian scientists to not lose hope.
