Our task is not over: ISRO chairman

Vastavam web: ISRO chairman K Sivan on Monday termed the successful launch of India’s second moon mission as the “beginning of a historic journey” that would “explore the unexplored”. Speaking about the mission, Sivan said the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) had bounced back “with flying colours” after a technical snag led to the mission being called off at the eleventh hour during the first attempt on July 15. Sivan said the team swung into action after the setback and within 24 hours, the issue had been rectified. He added, “Our task is not over. We will work on the next mission now.
