10 million Indians watched the launch of Chandrayaan 2 with pride. Their heart thumping and adrenaline rushing through their veins. It took 7 years of hard work to complete this project. Imagine you make a very complex volcano for the school science fair and when the day you’re come and everybody is interested in your work , the volcano starts bubbling and you have the feeling that now will surely win. That’s the feeling when the India saw the Chandrayaan 2 launched.Chandrayaan 2 is an Indian lunar mission that will boldly go where no country has ever gone before — the Moon’s south polar region. Through this effort, the aim is to improve our understanding of the Moon — discoveries that will benefit India and humanity as a whole. These insights and experiences aim at a paradigm shift in how lunar expeditions are approached for years to come — propelling further voyages into the farthest frontiers.The lunar South Pole is especially interesting because of the lunar surface area here that remains in shadow is much larger than that at the North Pole. There is a possibility of the presence of water in permanently shadowed areas around it. In addition, South Pole region has craters that are cold traps and contain a fossil record of the early Solar System. It is the 1st space mission to conduct a soft landing on the Moon’s south polar region,1st Indian expedition to attempt a soft landing on the lunar surface with home-grown technology, 1st Indian mission to explore the lunar terrain with home-grown technology, 4th country ever to soft land on the lunar surface. I as indian was very proud of this project. But tragically the Chandrayaan 2 failed just by 2 km and lost touch with the base.
