Why ISRO posts and delete’s picture of Chandrayaan-3 lander taken from Chandrayaan-2 orbiter, deletes tweet later

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has deleted its latest post on X wherein it released pictures of Chandrayaan-3 lander taken by Chandrayaan-2’s Orbiter minutes after posting it.

ISRO’s post which is now deleted read, “I spy you. Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter photoshoots Chandrayaan 3 lander. Chandrayaan-2’s Orbiter High-Resolution Camera (OHRC) – the came with the best resolution anyone currently has around the moon.”

After a 40-day journey into space, the Chandrayaan-3 lander, ‘Vikram’, touched down on the uncharted lunar South Pole on 23 August making India the first country to do so. As the Vikram lander carrying the Pragyaanrover in its belly touched down on the lunar surface, it marked a giant leap in India’s spacefaring journey providing a well-deserved finale to ISRO’s long years of toil. India has became the fourth country after the US, China, and Russia to have successfully landed on the moon’s surface

The Ancient Times

Because we’re journalists, we’re impatient. We want to gather the news as quickly as possible, using any technological resource available. And when we’re as sure of the story as we can be, we want to share it immediately, in whatever way reaches the most people. The Internet didn’t plant these ideas in our heads. We’ve always been this way.
