ISRO’s Harish Chandra Tiwari, in his interaction with the children demonstrated a unique diameter, which is visible far away into the solar system.  He also explained the objective and working of the Chandrayaan – 2  and shared information on how the Vikram failed to make a soft landing on the moon towards the fag end of the landing process.  He said that this was due to the speed of the lander being more than desirable.  He reiterated the mission has been a success and scientists at ISRO are working hard towards establishing communication with the lander.

MM Bhaskar, of SANSA Foudation also added that such exhibitions are important for children, as they come to terms with the developments in the areas of Science and Space, in the country.  Children, inspite of information being available over the Internet, are exposed to limited opportunities when it comes to defining their career plans and goals.  Such exhibitions demonstrate the application of knowledge in organisations like ISRO – where there exists limitless opportunities to deliver knowledge and performance – the Sky is the limit.  This exhibition dwells on providing such information.
