BENGALURU, India (Diya TV) — India’s attempt to land a rover on the moon may have fallen short. Moments before landing, scientists lost contact with the Chandrayaan-2. The goal was to land near the moon’s south pole, an area that has been largely unexplored. All was normal until the lander was roughly one mile away from the moon’s surface. ISRO is still analyzing data. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said afterwards “In life, there are ups and downs. The country is proud of you.” He later tweeted “we remain hopeful and will continue working hard on our space programme.”

The United States State Department is showing support for India’s new law that designates four men — Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar, Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Saeed, its top leader Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi & notorious mobster Dawood Ibrahim — as terrorists. State Department Acting Assistant Secretary Alice Wells said the new law “expands possibilities for joint #USIndia efforts to combat the scourge of terrorism.” Under this bill, India can impose a travel ban on individuals who have been designated as “terrorists” and seize their properties.

And Detroit local news anchor Roop Raj took to social media to respond to a viewer wondering where he ‘came from.’ And as usual, he handled it with grace and aplomb.
