Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi applauded the entire team of space scientists and researchers at Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for their ‘incredible and praiseworthy efforts’ on the Chandrayaan-2 mission.

“We owe a great debt to ISRO and the brilliant men and women who staff it. Their hard work and dedication has earned India a place in the league of space-faring nations and has inspired generations to reach for the stars,” Gandhi said.

It is a testament to their remarkable ability, goodwill and unique place in the heart of every Indian, that the nation followed Chandrayaan-2’s journey at every step no matter the hour, she added.

Gandhi said that ‘Chandrayaan-2’s journey may take us slightly longer but ISRO’s history is replete with examples of their determination in the face of seemingly hopeless odds’.

“They never give up. I have no doubt that we will get there, if not today, then tomorrow; together as a nation,” she said.

She further recollected that ‘our scientists at ISRO have achieved incredible feats with 115 successful space missions and astounding successes with Chandrayaan-1 (India’s first Moon Mission) and Mangalyaan (Mars Mission) and the nation is extremely proud of their immense successes’.

Sonia also outlined that no success is final and every obstacle is a stepping stone to future success.

‘Chandrayaan 2 has laid the foundation for achieving greater feats and the entire country awaits in anticipation for traversing the next frontier of space,’ she added.
