Chandrayaan-2 fever grips India: Chandrayaan-2 is all set to put feet for the first time on the southern pole of the moon. The whole nation is under the grip of Chandrayaan-2 fever. Now there are idols of Lord Ganesha in the form of Chandrayan. Sixty students selected by a quiz are accompanying prime minister Modi to Bengaluru to watch the historic spectacle live. People are praying for the successful soft land of Vikram, within hours from now.
India to make history today night in space: ISRO is keeping its fingers crossed on the soft land of Vikram lander on the moon between 1:30 to 2:30 IST. The Pragyan rover is set to roll out for the first time on the southern pole around 5:30 to 6:30 AM. An ISRO official confirmed that they are anxious but not afraid.
But why should they be afraid? Chandrayaan-1 was sent 11 years ago. It has completed all the missions that the Chandrayan2 has completed so far now. But it failed on the crucial hour of landing its lander on the moon due to technical failures. The first Chandrayaan-1 mission was aborted exactly ten years and nine days ago on 28th August 2009.
Will Chandrayan successfully cross that hard step and step into the moon? It is the billion peoples' question which will be answered at around 1:30 to 2:30 AM now.
