Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the ISRO scientists from the mission control room after the mission was failed. “There are ups and downs in life. This is not a small achievement. The nation is proud of you. You all have done a big service to nation, science and mankind. I am with you all the way, move forward bravely,” PM Modi said. On Saturday morning, he said, “We came very close but we will need to cover more ground. The best is yet to come… India is with you.”

ISRO Chief K Sivan broke down this morning and was consoled by PM Modi. The heartwarming gesture my PM was touching as Indians applauded ISRO for their hard work and determination. Bollywood celebrities took to social media to express hope and lauded their hard work. They even said that ISRO will make it happen the next time. Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn among others send out messages to ISRO.
