In ISRO’s post, Chandrayaan wishes ‘good luck’ to Lander Vikram

As India is stepping closer to make history in space, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on their official Twitter handle, on Friday (September 6), posted a cartoon in which the lunar orbiter wishes Vikaram good luck.

The Chandrayaan 2 spacecraft will make a soft landing near the south pole of the moon on the early hours of Saturday.

In the cartoon, the Lunar Orbiter while releasing Lander Vikram, says, “It was great travelling with you so far Vikram. Best of luck! I hope you reach the South Pole soon.” To this Vikram replies, “It was quite the journey indeed! I’ll see you around – in the orbit.”
