Indias Chandrayaan 2 moon mission is going according to plan and people are crossing their fingers that the Vikram landing module will make a successful soft landing near the south pole of the moon's far side, putting it in an exclusive club. The aim of the unmanned Chandrayaan-2 mission is to study water deposits.

A worthwhile report, if a bit unnecessarily backhanded:

[They launched a spacecraft...because they failed an earlier attempt.]

[They want to do research...oh but really they're just trying to prove themselves.]

Why say it like this?
To your credit, those aspects are facts and worth knowing (...I guess), yet if that's true, you completely fail to detail any of the groundbreaking research of WHY they are targeting the dark side of the moon. Afterall, finding water in kind of a big deal. This will move the world of scientific knowledge forward. I find that more significant than spreading some quasi-political agenda. Just sayin'. I have a feeling this report might have been worded differently were it a Western craft (I am an American, for disclosure's sake).

We should all be thankful and proud of India's tremendous accomplishment even thus far.

I hope I don't come off as too harsh—I am nonetheless glad that DW reported on this. Danke.

It didn't land as expected. Communication stopped. Maybe crashed. But we Indians can try again.

I am from London and waiting to see the Vikram landing on moon.

OK, it's time to negotiate the problem of sovereignty of Moon. I have a good advice for world and Moon Peace in the next 100 years. South pole belongs to India if they succeed this time, near side belongs to Russia and America, and the sovereignty of far side of Moon belongs to China. If Other countries wanna land on Moon, you should get a Visa from them firstly.
