Re: Chandrayan-2 Mission

We should not be devastated. Disappointed? Sure. This was our first time, and we just could not achieve soft landing. We reached the Moon, the orbiter is healthy, and in a polar orbit.

Almost everyone in my circle, based on Nat Geo, YouTube and other channel descriptions.....all are waiting for a live video. I had to disappoint them...however I asked to wake/stay up and watch. Even my sister was going to watch live. I think media has wiped up the frenzy today......good thing.

The concept of "Live" seems debatable. All channels and news outlet are using the words - live, watch etc. BRF gurus feel it won't be instantaneous, and only telemetry data will be live. On top of it there will be 15mns of no communication. We at BRF are speculating there might be deferred...
