    ISRO we are with you

    This is the time we all must unite and give the scientists at the ISRO our moral support who have been analysing the data as to how the communication between the Vikram lander and Mission facility at Bengaluru lost. The whole night yesterday was a terrific challenge to the scientists as they tried its best to prove the world. Good that even PM Modi consoled the scientists that they have done very good so far and the nation is proud of them. Even a special address is being done through national television. We at ISC also stand with ISRO on your mission to the moon. Please join me to give pep up message to the scientists.

    All true Indians are with ISRO scientists and engineers. It is not a failure. Only a little bit miscalculation at the very last stage, as a result of which Vikram got disconnected at a distance of only 2.1 km before landing. This miscalculation will definitely be rectified.

    Let's not bother about anti-social, anti-national politicians and Paki jokers who are mocking ISRO. These idiots have nothing to do except criticizing. They are and will always remain a big ZERO.

    It is an achievement, not a failure. Failure is a stepping stone to success. When we can reach a distance short of 2.1 km from the moon, we can surely land on the moon. It is not an easy mission to think and plan. ISRO scientists have succeeded. We should encourage our scientists to make good the defects and make the rover to move on the moon. The whole nation is proud of ISRO. We will never give up.

    Any new thing when we try may have failed and as all know that failure is a stepping stone to success, we too will succeed in our task. This has nothing to do with true Indians. Please don't try to make this discussion as National or anti-national thing. Whenever we have some criticism from people, it has become a trend for some to call them anti-national. Please stopped such illiterate kind of note. All people who are citizen of India by the right given in the constitution, none can say that they are notIndian.

    We all are with ISRO and when some moke or tell something,, it is part and parcel of the game. Many do it to get fame while some do it to get a vote. People can understand the difference and thus they will decide on their own.

    We should encourage our scientist for better performance next time. In such missions it happens that we feel it as a set back for our scientific community. Actually it is not like that. It is not a set back. It is a step forward for betterment in space research in India in future.
    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

    ISRO Scientists and Engineers deserve many praises for the achievements so far they made. This is not a failure and it is a small set back and same will be rectified and we will get back the connectivity at the earliest, I hope.
    What is research? It is not that whatever we do for the first time will give the yield as desired. If it comes like that, that is not research. Even when we make a curry in the kitchen for the first time we do a little mistake. So it is unwise to criticise them unnecessarily. I appreciate our Prime Minister who consoled the ISRO chief when he broke down. That is a very nice gesture and we all should also do the same thing. Instead of that commenting badly on them is not a wise man's job.
    Let us all be with SCientists and engineers. Let all of us give moral support to them and see that they will get back to normal. Never worry about small setbacks and they will help us to go to greater heights. All the best to ISRO. As an Indian, I am proud of your achievements.

    This type of massive scientific projects are always a risky proposition and any problem can crop up at any moment. Sending an automatic rover to moons southern surface which is very cool and full of unknown terrains and then getting scientific data from it requires a very detailed engineered project and this one was of similar magnitude. Unfortunately the last minute communication break with the module was a set back for the project at its last leg and might have discouraged the scientific community which was engaged in its successful landing. Now we do not know whether the rover is in good physical condition or not. Even if it is in good condition, it is of no use as whatever it is able to do can not be monitored from here because of breaking of two way communication. The orbiter part of the project which is currently orbiting moon from such a high altitude can not tell much about it and its present condition.
    Knowledge is power.

    Just came across the fact that the US failed 12 times and Russia failed 7 times before setting the record for moon landing and India attempted first time with 95 per cent success.

    ISRO did a great job and no doubt about it. We need to grow from our failures. Today countries like the US in the queue in front of ISRO to send their projects into space. This situation happened through the hard work done from the starting of ISRO and initially, we had many failures. So nothing happened we achieved 95 per cent success in the first attempt. The agony in the face of Mr Sivan, the director of ISRO itself is the fact that how much they worked for this project.
    People still making negative comments on social media about the huge cost behind these experiments. But they are ignorant and they don't know how much ISRO is earning through its launching.

    Since the Orbiter is very much in work, it can still take high-resolution images of the moon and also find out what happened to Vikram lander.

    I feel that the mission is 90% success. The orbiter is functioning excellently with 100% capacity (someone was saying that its capacity would be more now) and it will continue orbiting for 7 years 6 months. In the meantime, another expedition will surely be launched for landing on the moon.

    A lot of people from our neighboring country are saying that it was a failed mission. Yes, it's a fact that ISRO failed to land Vikram and Pragyan successfully, the mission is on. It was a 99.99% successful mission because the most important part of mission, the orbiter is still orbiting the moon and it will keep on doing so for next 7.5 years. The orbiter is going to send important information back to earth which will help us to explore the moon better. The orbiter has most advanced cameras installed on it and we are going to have better pictures of moon's surface now and probably we will find out the Vikram lander too if it didn't crash landed.

    In science nothing is a failure but just a stepping stone to success. We learn from our mistakes and make sure not to do them again. ISRO has achieved great feats all thanks for the brilliant minds there as well as from the failures and successes of scientists from other nations.

    It doesn't matter how many tries it takes, ISRO should keep trying and achieve success.

    Hats off to ISRO for reaching that close. They succeeded in their mission to the red planet. They will put India's stamp on the silver orb as well one day. Their hard work and perseverance will continue to reap dividends.

    Though there are weight constraints while sending such Orbiter, Lander and Rover, ISRO should think in different line while in its expedition to moon the next time. Though I do not know whether it is feasible or not, why can't ISRO send a small dummy test lander along with the main lander? They can experiment with the test lander first and if it lands safely on the moon, they can initiate landing the main lander. This can reduce expenditure and save time.

  • #676255
    There is a lot of heartbreak for the loss of communication with the Vikram Lander. The Prime Minister and the entire country consoling the ISRO for the loss. How unbearable it is to lose communication?

    Breaking news: ISRO has found out the exact location of the Vikram lander, which had lost contact with the space agency just 2.1 km above the Moon's surface. However, communication has not yet been established with Vikram so far.

    We and ISRO need to be proud, going by the data on moon missions, around 40% have failed and that too ISRO attempted in the south pole. Best of luck next time ISRO, what I loved is that schoolchildren were so excited and while waiting for the school bus, were having their own views of how it would have crashed etc. This thread is about science and advancement, let us not allow political leanings and views mar this thread.

    I think, exploration by rover constitute only a 5% of the total project. Hence we cannot say that the program is a failure.
    If you compare ISRO's space programs with that of other US/EU space agencies, ISRO's programs are less complex. When the payload complexity is high scientific capability will become more. But ISRO is smart enough that they are targeting only important areas that complement other space agencies programs. Hence they were able to make cheaper explorations. With lesser payload they are addressing bigger questions. That is why world scientific community is appreciating ISRO.

    People started politicizing this exploration by commenting the loss of communication of rover with the restrictions imposed on some people of Kashmir by the Govt recently! The same people usually arguing that the money would be better spent on healthcare and improved sanitation instead of exploring space. Their age old belief and inward thinking always shows that space activity is for wealthy nations and not for developing countries.
    Investment in space programs builds capability and capacity and it benefit the economy and society. Space activity is a wealth generator.
