NEW YORK: India successfully launched its ambitious project Chandrayaan-2 on Monday to test the surface of the moon. Chandrayaan-2 will land at the south pole of the moon in September after a long journey. US space agency NASA has tweeted a tweet on the success of Indian space agency ISRO. This was followed by a series of criticisms on social media for NASA's "arrogant" and "demeaning" tweets. Seeing his criticism, NASA was forced to give clarification.
On ISRO's success, NASA wrote in a tweet, "Congratulations to ISRO on launching Chandrayaan-2 for moon study. We are proud to support your mission through our Deep Space Network. We are optimistic about the information you will get from the Moon's South Pole, where we are going to send our astronauts in the next few years through the Artemis mission. '
After NASA's "disputed" tweet, tons of comments came on Twitter. Ketan Ramtek wrote, "Is NASA demeaning or congratulating ISRO? Congratulations to you in advance for your Moon mission. Another user, Prabal Hazarika, wrote, "I didn't like the tone of NASA's tweet. NASA looks arrogant and demeaning to others. Appreciate the success of ISRO. Don't glorify your success in a congratulatory tweet.
