The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Saturday lost all communications with its Vikram lander. The lander was just 2.1 kilometres away from the lunar surface when ISTRAC (ISRO’s command centre) lost it. People from all walks of life congratulated ISRO for successfully placing the orbiter into the moon’s orbit and asked the scientists to not feel disheartened with just one setback.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “We came very close but we need to cover more ground in the times to come. Learning from today will make us stronger and better. The nation is proud of our space programme and scientists. The best is yet to come in our space programme. There are new frontiers to discover and new places to go. India is with you.”

Indian cricketers also posted some emotional post on social media. India skipper Virat Kohli wrote, “There's nothing like failure in science, we experiment & we gain. Massive respect for the scientists at #ISRO who worked relentlessly over days & nights. The nation is proud of you, Jai Hind #Chandrayan2.”

“As cricketers, we try to knock it out of the park but you @isrohave shown us how you’ll keep increasing your boundaries. Keep inspiring! #ProudOfISRO,” Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya said.

“We as a nation are extremely proud of the entire team at @ISRO for the incredible work put together for the mission of #Chandrayaan2. With hope and passion in our hearts let’s get up and do it again and never give up!” Yuvraj Singh tweeted.
