Promotion and Pakistan bashing are two different things by the way. And in my view indian government is face saving by calling it a 90% success. If the end goal hasn't been achieved then what is there to celebrate? I don't know why indians fall for this government's lies, but its of concern for us in Pakistan.
I believe the article explained that pretty well. Chandrayaan 2 had multiple objectives, there was no "end goal." Obviously, setbacks and disappointments occur in scientific missions, that is just part of the process. And in numeric terms, 8 of the 14 payloads were delivered on the orbiter. So there is a reason to celebrate, despite the dissapointment of the soft landing not succeeding. And the Government doesn't need to face save, since organizations such as NASA and the ESA have all praised ISRO for the successes of Chandrayaan.

Also, I highly doubt India would have used space as a way to bash Pakistan. India became the first country in Asia to send a satellite to Mars, did it use that as a way to bash Pakistan? If anything, it is Pakistan who is out of line in this case. Indians and Pakistanis trolling each other is one thing, but unprofessional behavior by Cabinet Ministers and high ranking military officers is another. Why does the director of Pakistan's military PR wing need to comment about a civilian space mission?

So while I understand your concerns, it actually seems like they are applying more to Pakistan in this case.

Personally, I think it is unfortunate that the current situation between India and Pakistan has gotten so bad that civilian space mission have been politicized. I think it would be great if someday, India and Pakistan could jointly launch such missions.

We, Indians not act as it was successful, As the lander crash landed, But we say it as 95% successful as we learned from the mistakes and even the orbiter is still at the orbit and trying to discover what happened. Sooner or later ISRO gonna do it right


You being a pakistani, We dont care what you say about our space mission as you have never failed because you never tried.
Has India scheduled a re-do or not yet planned? Probably India could learn a one or two from Russia.

Statements were made by indian politicians "we are sending missions to mars and they are sending terrorists" ..... I am sorry I can't provide you the source.

Because indian military chief and indian defense minister make childish statements about atom bombs, you can search and provide us one statement by our Military people and our defense minister on use of atom bomb.

I don't see a reason for your SM and military general comment/make fun for our space missions failure to soft land while the whole world congratulate Indias moon mission.

There is a very solid reason for that. The military rep didn't use his official account I think, and being a pro military person he didn't appreciate your wasting Veer chakra on a failure. If that failure was worth it we would have recommended it like you did for Sher Khan during Kargil conflict.

SM is a media personality in india.

Some members here should keep in mind that while the soft landing was unfortunately unsuccessful, ISRO did successfully launch the orbiter into orbit, which will last for as long as 7 years and provide valuable information about the lunar surface. There is a reason why ISRO has received international praise for the mission despite the last-minute setback.

Also, India did end up landing on the lunar south pole, although it was a hard landing rather than the planned soft landing. Still a good achievement for the first attempt.
You call a crash a "soft landing"?
Better update your vocabulary fast.

Soft landing that is unsuccessful = Crash. Wold you like to sugar coat it further?

If you could mention that it is still 90% successful ........... if you could.

Would you take a flight that is 90% successful?

I think chandrayaan 3 is scheduled for 2023 or 2024. It is going to be a joint mission with the Japanese space agency
Thats a good idea, on their own they will mess it up royally AGAIN.

Sir didn't you read the article I posted? In no way can this be called a royal failure. The orbiter, which has the majority of scientific payloads, was successfully launched, and is the first orbiter to orbit the moon around the poles instead of around the equator. In addition, India came closer than any country to soft landing on the Lunar South Pole. In fact, India technically is the only country to land on the moon's soft pole, even though it was a hard landing. Still a good achievement for the first attempt.

However, the most important thing is ISRO learned valuable information that can be applied to the next mission. Keep in mind that Chandrayaan 2 was largely a test run for Chandrayaan 3, which will use a rover with a much longer lifespan.

There is a reason why the world's major space agencies and many space experts are praising ISRO for the largely-successful mission. Nobody except the usual suspects from one particular country has called it a failure.

That's not sugar coating, that is the truth. Please read what those with knowledge about space exploration are saying. Although I suppose the egree of the success vs. failure ratio is debatable, in know way can it be called a failure.

Now if the orbiter loses communications or Vikram Lander did not make it anywhere near as close as it did to making a successful soft landing(it was going fine until only 2km above the moon) than it would be a different story.
