The failure happened 13 minutes after Vikram began its descent, hoping to reduce its speed from 6048 km per hour to about 7 km per hour or lower to enable a soft landing.
“Salute and applaud the incredible endeavours of @isro !!!! So proud of everything they continue to do….so proud to be part of a nation that has the most genius minds….,” wrote filmmaker Karan Johar on Twitter.
Taapsee Pannu who recently essayed the role of an ISRO scientist in Mission Mangal called ISRO “our hero”. She tweeted, “Lump in the throat, tear in the eye not coz of anything else but witnessing how beautifully you got the entire nation together in hope and spirit… it’s ok to take a few steps back when u know you are about to make your longest jump. You are our hero @isro ❤️”
See what other celebrities tweeted:
There’s no science without experiment…sometimes we succeed, sometimes we learn. Salute to the brilliant minds of @isro, we are proud and confident #Chandrayaan2 will make way for #Chandrayaan3 soon. We will rise again.
These are only steps forward and not backward and we as a nation stand by , celebrate and are very proud of our scientists at @isro for their perseverance and achievements so far . You all are truly inspiring.

Sometimes we don’t land or arrive at the destination we want to. The important thing is we took off and had the Hope and Belief we can. Our current situation is never and not our final destination. That always comes in time and belief! Proud of #ISRO

Lessons of Life : Each step we take is part of our journey. As long as we keep stepping forward, our journey continues. Like a child we may stumble, fall, and get up. Learn and walk again. #Chandrayan2 is a huge success. Its one part of our journey. To explore frontiers of Space.
