Have you checked Twitter recently? #IndiaMakesHistory, #Chandrayaan2 and #ISRO have shot up to the top 5 trending positions within the last few hours. Chandrayaan 2, ISRO’s most ambitious lunar mission to date, is moments away from creating history. Chandrayaan 1, ISRO’s first lunar mission found traces of water molecules on the moon; ISRO’s second lunar mission, Chandrayaan 2, has now set out to conduct a deeper study of the Moon’s surface. Upon its successful landing, India will emerge as the first country ever to have a soft landing on the Moon’s south pole region. The entire world is eager to know what Chandrayaan 2 discovers.
At this moment, Twitter is flooded with tweets praising Chandrayaan 2 and ISRO’s efforts. All major media outlets, as well as government organisations are taking to the microblogging site to praise India’s achievement. Earlier on Friday, ISRO tweeted about Vikram, Chandrayaan 2's lander, and a buzz of tweets followed.
