On Tuesday early hours we got the good news when Isro announced that Chandrayaan-2 successfully made an entry into the lunar orbit. The report further confirmed that the space organisation had completed a critical milestone in India's second Moon mission.
Isro tweeted a picture of the moon and Chandrayaan-2, with the text 'Nearing our destination' to announce the news by saying, "Today (August 20, 2019) after the Lunar Orbit Insertion (LOI), #Chandrayaan2 is now in Lunar orbit. Lander Vikram will soft-land on Moon on September 7, 2019."
After the announcement, Indian Twitter was flooded with congratulatory messages, and people applauded the ISRO's successful challenge. Even Anand Mahindra, Mahindra Group Chairman, took to Twitter and shared his excitement.
Anand Mahindra reposted Isro's tweet with the description, "And the journey is the destination, @isro We love the ride you're taking us on. Don't ever cease your exploration...Next stop, Mars..."
