Everyone appreciates the 'difficult' efforts of ISRO scientists

SEP 07 (WTN) - Success is achieved by continuous effort. It is the result of constant efforts that the bypassing failures, humans being have made so much progress today. The goal is not achieved by sitting disappointed after failures. Amidst efforts, successes and failures, India's Chandrayaan-2 mission has suffered a major setback. The efforts of ISRO scientists to land on the moon suffered a setback only 2.1 kilometers before the lunar surface when ISRO's contact with Lander Vikram was severed. However, efforts are underway to somehow connect with Lander Vikram.

The pain of not reaching on the surface of the moon while penetrating the vast space can be seen clearly on the faces of ISRO scientists. Actually, it has never been easier for humans to penetrate vast space and come back to space. India has lost one of its land some distance away from the moon's surface, but the US space agency NASA has seen its astronauts burning.

In fact, human attempts to fly into space suffered a major setback on January 28, 1986, when NASA's space shuttle Challenger was destroyed due to an accident. According to American time, on January 28, 1986, at 11.38 in the morning, the Space Shuttle Challenger took off from Cape Canaveral, Florida. In addition to six astronauts in this shuttle vehicle, Christ McAuliffe was also aboard. For your information, let you know that McAuliffe was a teacher, and she was going to be the first American citizen to travel to space. McAuliffe won a competition and had the opportunity to go into space with other astronauts.

A large number of people were present near the space center to watch the flight of the space shuttle Challenger. But it is said that the science also has some limitations. The space shuttle Challenger succumbed to the accident after 73 seconds from the takeoff, and all the astronauts killed in that accident. The accident was witnessed by hundreds of people standing near the space center and crores of people watching it live on TV.

After the Challenger accident, there was silence in all over America. After this accident, a special commission was formed by the immediate US President Ronald Reagan to find out why such an accident happened to the Challenger and what improvements should be made to avoid such accidents in future.

When the Commission appointed by the President investigated the Challenger accident, the investigation revealed that the ‘O ring’ seal of the solid fuel rocket in the vehicle exploded due to failure of the seal. After this incident, questions were being raised on NASA's credibility. To compensate for this, a space shuttle named Endeavor was later launched.

NASA's failure in space was once again seen when, after 17 years, on February 1, 2003, the space shuttle of NASA once again failed victim to the accident. On 1 February 2003, the Colombia space shuttle collapsed before it came to Earth. The incident caused a wave of mourning in India too, because the first female astronaut of Indian origin Kalpana Chawla died in this accident.

Going into space has never been easy for humans and neither will be. An institute like NASA has also faced failure in space missions many times. ISRO scientists should be praised for attempting to reach the part of the moon in the Chandrayaan-2 mission, where no country in the world has access.

In the most missions, including the US Apollo mission, landing was done in the middle of the moon and China's mission was towards the north pole of moon. For your information, let you know that the rocky ground of the moon was also a big challenge to the ISRO for soft landing, because Lander Vikram had to find a place of soft landing between two craters.

ISRO scientists do not have to be frustrated or disappointed, as this was their first attempt to land on the south pole of moon. For information, let you know that even a developed country like America has failed in its many missions on the moon. Today's Russia and immediate Soviet Union sent about 33 missions to the moon between 1958 and 1976, but 26 of them could not reach their destination.

America is not far behind in the moon mission failures. From 1958 to 1972, 17 of the 31 US moon missions failed. Not only this, America also sent 6 manned missions to the moon between 1969 and 1972. In these moon missions, 24 astronauts reached close to the moon, but only 12 could land on the moon land.

In April this year, the mission moon of Israel also remained incomplete. This mission of a private Israeli company entered the lunar orbit on April 4, but it lost contact with the Earth after being 10 kilometers away.

The failures are not the end. The failures are learned from where the mistake occurred, which led to the failure. ISRO scientists need not be disappointed, as this was their first attempt to reach the surface of the south pole of moon, which could not be completed due to technical shortcomings. Getting so close to the lunar surface is nothing short of an achievement. It is hoped that once again ISRO scientists will get together for the next Chandrayaan mission and achieve success.
