Too Long; Didn't Read

India launched its second lunar mission [Chandrayaan 2], which consisted of an orbiter named Vikram lander and a rover named Pragyan. The goal of the mission was to study the soil and surface composition of the moon and to discover water in the form of ice. The mission failed when the lander deviated from its intended trajectory and crashed onto the lunar surface while attempting to make a soft land on 6th September 2019.
