Using Allama Iqbal’s famous ghazal their being more lands ahead of the moon, Urdu Times, on September 8, speaks of how the ISRO chief K Sivan was “consoled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi who boosted his morale and sent a message to youngsters that they must not be disappointed by failure, and keep trying”.
A source said an internal ISRO committee, constituted to go into the likely reasons for the failure in making the soft-landing, was likely to submit its findings “very soon”, possibly within the next couple of days. The source said the committee had met a few times and almost finalised its conclusions.
NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) will fly over the part of the Moon where the lander is lying after it lost contact with the ISRO control centre when it was 335 metres from the surface of the Moon on September 7.
The LRO is a robotic spacecraft currently orbiting the Moon. It studies the Moon's surface, clicks pictures, and collects data that help in figuring out the presence and possibility of water ice and other resources on the Moon, as well as plan future missions to it.

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on February 15 set a record with successfully launching a PSLV-C37 rocket carrier with 104 satellites from seven countries on board. The majestic lift of PSLV-c37 with Cartosat-2 series space craft was blasted off at 9:28 am from the first launch pad at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota.
Almost everything that ISRO has accomplished in the last few years, has already been done before although by only one or two other countries. Monday’s test of a reusable satellite launch vehicle (RLV) is no different. What distinguishes each of ISRO’s missions, however, is the cost: almost all the missions, including the Moon and Mars […]
