“Failure is the opportunity to begin again with more intelligence.” ーHenry Ford.
Henry Ford was certainly right! ISRO faced hiccups initially but to propel better than ever. India scripted history by launching Chandrayaan-2 – its first lander mission to the Moon – from Andhra Pradesh’s Sriharikota on Monday. The three-stage rocket GSLV-MkIII-M1 launch vehicle lifted off at its appointed time of 2.43 pm and successfully injected Chandrayaan-2 into Earth’s orbit, where it will spend 23 days.
As the quest for landing India’s first spaceship on the moon is off to a smooth start, the elated Indian citizens took to Twitter to celebrate this big success.
Special moments that will be etched in the annals of our glorious history!
The launch of #Chandrayaan2 illustrates the prowess of our scientists and the determination of 130 crore Indians to scale new frontiers of science.
Every Indian is immensely proud today! pic.twitter.com/v1ETFneij0

I always looked up at the moon as a child, wondering what secrets it’s hiding. The successful launch of #Chandrayaan2 will shed some light on these secrets, & motivate the next gen to help India’s space exploration programme. I congratulate everyone at @ISRO for this success. pic.twitter.com/xy6aGt0xi3
