On Saturday night, Chandrayaan 2’s lander Vikram lost communication with ISRO headquarters in Bengaluru after reaching just a little over 2 kilometers from moon’s surface. Because of this setback, ISRO chairman K Sivan broke down and hugged PM Narendra Modi.
Despite the shortfall, everyone is extremely proud of ISRO’s achievement. A lot of bollywood celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, Sonam Kapoor among others praise ISRO for their efforts.
Here are the tweets of celebs encouraging the scientists and appreciating their work:

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

What an incredible achievement for every toiling, brilliant mind at @isro for getting us this far. Incredibly proud and hugely inspired by the sheer audacity of the dream behind #Chandrayan2. We may have lost communication, not hope.

More than 90% of the experiment is on the ORBITER which, gods grace , is safely in the Lunar orbit. That is still fully functional and therefore The mission still very successful. #ISRO https://t.co/MoVrRUv2fL
