ISRO (India's Space Agency) lost contact with the Chandrayaan-2 lander. No confirmation that it has crashed... just no contact.

EDIT: On the upside, India's lunar orbiter remains functional and performing science. The lander was planned for a 15-day mission, so this is disappointing, but still a major success for ISRO.

Well, this is a surprise.... ISRO's Vikram Lander did in fact make it to the surface of the moon... but it was a harder-than-planned landing, and so far, no communication.

I want them to go to the moon using solar and wind power.

Using processes and materials created solely with solar and wind power...

Hello, Bigot.

Once again, <whoooooosh!>

Yer an idiot.

You're so immersed in your ideological tirade that you fail to note that many of the processes & materials simply cannot be manufactured using wind & solar power.

Name one, a single solitary working commercial example, of any of the following currently operating entirely (not merely theoretically) on wind or solar:
1) Titanium smelter;
2) Aluminum smelter;
3) Steel mill.

Go ahead. I'll wait...

Going to travel to the moon sitting on a solar panel that works like a flying carpet. Just you wait and see!

Had to look that one up. The wonderful part of being senile is that you re-larn something new every day.
