Chandrayaan-2's mission life extends to 7 years: ISRO

"The Chandrayaan-2 orbiter was originally supposed to stay a year, will now remain operational for seven years", says the Indian Space Research Organisation. The extension of the life of orbiter would occur due to fuel savings during the trip to Moon. Meanwhile, the lander Vikram still remains out of contact, informed the media reports. A successful landing would have made India only the fourth country in the world to land a rover on the Moon and the only country in the world to perform a 'soft landing' near the lunar south pole.

Nageshwar Rao and Sivagami, Chennai based couple reunited with their 22-year-old son Avinash, who was cruelly kidnapped in February 1999 and sent to the US for adoption.

Avinash told that "it was overwhelming, I couldn’t believe this was finally happening. I saw them and I was speechless." Whereas the father Nageshwar Rao said, “We were happy and felt bad when we had lost him for so many years, also we are touched that he cares for us without having met for 20 years."
