NASA lauded India’s historic Chandrayaan-2 mission on Twitter, saying the Indian Space Research Organisation’s attempt to soft-land Vikram module on the lunar South Pole has “inspired” them and that the US space agency is looking forward to explore the solar system with its Indian counterpart.

Here’s what the UAE Space Agency and Australian Space Agency tweeted-

The team at ISRO is currently analyzing the available data and will attempt to re-establish a link for the next 14 days. However, as the orbiter is intact and circling the moon, the Chandrayaan-2 mission is still going on.
