Isro’s 'Bahubali' falters, casts shadow on manned mission
SRIHARIKOTA: The stalling of Chandrayaan-2 on Monday due to a leak in the cryogenic engine of GSLV-MkIII has put a question mark over Indian Space Research Organisation’s future missions, including Gaganyaan. The manned mission slated for 2022 and missions to Sun (2020) and Venus (2023) are all dependent on the same rocket which now needs to be fixed.
GSLV-MkIII is called Isro’s ‘Bahubali,’ as it can lift up to four tonnes. The earlier versions of GSLVs and the most successful rocket PSLV can carry much less mass.
If Chandrayaan-2 continues to hang in balance due to technical challenges of the vehicle, so would Gaganyaan. That would also mean uncertainty over the Aditya mission planned for the middle of next year to study the sun’s corona and its impact on climatic change.

This is such an negative way of reporting a scientific activity!! I am not even sure if these reporters are qualified to write pieces on such an event as the "Gaganyaan". If failure puts question mark on a scientific endeavours then we would still have been roaming the jungles half naked. NASA fails every other day. The moon rover had glitches, the mars rover had glitches, astronauts have died on take off and landing as recent as couple of years ago. Compared to that the cryogenic leak is a small thing, and these idiots are writing a piece as if all has ended. Yes, this has been a let down owing to the expectations created around it. However, nothing is lost and I am sure that our scientists will cross this hurdle.

Why such pessimism. It is all a part of the game and a valuable learning experience. ISRO will do it.

This is the height of nonsensical reporting. A technical snag has put a question mark on the entire space program? What kind of article is this? Who are you reporting for?

Pathetic the way media and we are trying to show ISRO in bad light. It's technical fault which will be sorted out in some time, why to make hue and cry for this.

I request all commenting against ISRO to start designing a cryogenic engine of their own
The confidence with which you are criticising, I am sure you have talent and expertise to design a better Engine.

Success and failures are part of any Research & Development, the same is with ISRO
Unbreakable Indian•3158•Wordsmith Member • Unbreakable•38 mins ago
what a negative headline!! instead of praising the safety checks of ISRO that detected the failure, in time. This article is casting shadow on future missions. Such negative journalism should be avoided.

well, ISRO is very careful and clever too. Let's give them time to fix the problem. studying of problem is more important than enjoying success. I give credit to ISRO for understanding this. Even though President was waiting to see the live launch, ISRO took wise decision to call off the launch. I pray and wish success soon to ISRO!!

Every machine can develop issues, but good engineers are those who can come up with genuine solutions and help their community or country to succeed.

Human being is capable to overcome this kind of things. And how other three countries US, Russia and achieved this feat?? All ways better a successful mission, if it is delayed for few more days, Weeks, months or years is not a problem. National pride is most important. However we have to accept failure gracefully similar to success.
