Despite the poverty and many social and financial issues, present government of India had started this space mission to reach the Moon after USA, RUSSIA & China but in the effort to get the glory they failed in the same way Israel did this year in February. Both israel and India are close allies and it is believed that both are failed in a same way, Israel failed on 11th April 2019 while India failed on 07- September- 2019. Israel spacecraft SpaceIL also entered in Lunar orbitn that time but while doing landing maneuvers it crashed and failed to land, This is what happen with india also in the same way India’s Spacecraft Chandrayaan-2 entered in Lunar Orbit but failed to do soft landing in south pole of the Moon.

According to the reports.
India’s attempt to become the first country to land a robotic mission at the Moon’s south pole has failed, after engineers lost contact with the Vikram lander — part of the Chandrayaan-2 probe.

Scientists at the Indian Space Research Organisation lost signal from the lander as it hovered over the surface, moments away from what would have been a successful soft-landing.

In a statement ISRO’s Mission Control Centre provided a brief explanation of what went wrong, saying the unmanned landing module’s “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 added.

India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi — who watched the final moments of the attempt — offered words of encouragement to the Chandrayaan team, which has been working on the $150 million project.

“India is proud of our scientists!” wrote Modi on Twitter. “They’ve given their best and have always made India proud. These are moments to be courageous, and courageous we will be!”

Scientists were hoping to land the robotic spacecraft between two craters about 375 miles from the moon’s unexplored south pole.
