Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday hailed ISRO for their incredible work on the Chandrayaan-2 mission saying their passion and dedication is an inspiration to every Indian and their work is not in vain, rather it has laid the foundation for many more path-breaking Indian space missions.

His remarks came hours after the much-anticipated Vikram lander lost signal moments before its moon landing.

"Congratulations to the team at ISRO for their incredible work on the Chandrayaan 2 Moon Mission. Your passion and dedication is an inspiration to every Indian. Your work is not in vain. It has laid the foundation for many more path breaking and ambitious Indian space missions," Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala also congratulated Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) saying they have traversed the new frontiers of space and made every citizen proud.

"Chandrayaan-2 mission is a testimony that ISRO's scientists have traversed the new frontiers of space and made every Indian proud."

"We see it as a new opportunity to surge ahead and reach greater heights. Future is only brighter to achieve new feats and heights," Surjewala tweeted.

Communication with Vikram was lost as the lander was descending towards the moon early on Saturday and was at an altitude of 2.1 km over the moon's South Pole where it was due to land, ISRO Chairman K. Sivan said.
