Before NASA, Pakistan’s first astronaut Namira Salim has also praised ISRO’s historical effort. She said, ‘Chandrayaan-2 mission is a quantum leap in the field of space for South Asia. It is a matter of pride not only for South Asia, but for the entire global space industry. She said, “I congratulate ISRO and India for the historic attempt of soft landing by Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram’s on south pole of the moon.”
Namira Saleem also said, ‘Such a huge achievement in the field of space in South Asia is amazing. Here it does not matter which country is leading in it. All political boundaries end in space. The space which unites us in the earth, unites us by traversing it. ‘Let us tell you that Namira Salim is the first astronaut of Pakistan, who will go to space with Sir Richard Branson Virgin Galactic.
