‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ actor R Madhavan took to his Twitter to share pictures with scientist Nambi Narayan. Showing his support towards the ISRO scientists, Madhavan wrote that 'it is still history in the making'. For those unaware, Chandrayaan 2's Vikram Lander was scheduled to make a soft landing between 1.30 am and 2.30 am. However, the ISRO Chief announced that the communication with the lander was lost at an altitude of 2.1 km and data is being analyzed.
R Madhavan highlighted that his feeling suggests that it was because of the 'fine braking thrusters' that might have been frozen shut and later went on to share his theory on why the mission was still very successful. He concluded with the popular '3 Idiots' hook line: "All is Well". Read his tweets below -
What ever it is .. it’s still History in the making. 🙏🙏🙏🙏😘— Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) September 6, 2019
More than 90% of the experiment is on the ORBITER which, gods grace , is safely in the Lunar orbit. That is still fully functional and therefore The mission still very successful. #ISRO https://t.co/MoVrRUv2fL— Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) September 6, 2019
Hoping that is true bro.. “ALL IS WELL...ALL IS WELL” with hand on my heart. ❤️.. but the divination from the planned path was minimal.. 🙈🙈🙈 https://t.co/iXfm7ZGhds— Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) September 6, 2019
That is why I am skeptical. The thrusters on MOM were ignited and the over heated before being frozen shut..the fine breakers today were being fired for the first time post launch.. https://t.co/E786unjExp— Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) September 6, 2019
Madhavan is currently shooting for ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’, movie based on the story of former Indian Space Research Orgnisation scientist Nambi Narayanan, where he is not the actor, but also the director, producer and writer. The actor had made headlines for the resemblance with Narayanan.
This is Mission Control Centre. #VikramLander descent was as planned and normal performance was observed up to an altitude of 2.1 km. Subsequently, communication from Lander to the ground stations was lost. Data is being analyzed.#ISRO— ISRO (@isro) September 6, 2019
Prime Minister Modi also tweeted his support to ISRO. He was present at the ISRO centre at Bengaluru. He motivated the scientists and thanked them for their service to the field of science and their contribution to the nation.
