India fails again to land its spacecraft at Moon
NEW DELHI - India's mission to land an unmanned spacecraft at the moon has failed as its space agency lost communication with its Chandrayaan-2 lunar craft today.
The Chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation K Sivan said data is being analysed in order to know the causes of lost communication, the Radio Pakistan reported.
It is a major setback to the ambitious plan of India, where twenty-two percent of the population lives under the poverty line and over 1.6 billion people lack adequate housing.
Narendra Modi government spent more than 900 cror rupees on the failed moon mission hoping to become just the fourth country after the United States, Russia and regional rival China to make a successful Moon landing and the first on the lunar South Pole.
