Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised the “prowess” of India’s scientists and the “determination” of its citizens. “#Chandrayaan2 is unique because it will explore and perform studies on the south pole region of lunar terrain which is not explored and sampled by any past mission. This mission will offer new knowledge about the Moon,” he wrote on Twitter.
