ISRO Chief K Sivan: PM is a source of inspiration&support for us. His speech gave us motivation. In his speech,the special phrase that I noted was,"Science should not be looked for results,but for experiments & experiments will lead to results." He said "The designated life term of the Orbiter was only one year. But because we have extra fuel right now available in the Orbiter, so the Orbiter life is estimated as seven and a half years." On Vikram Lander he said "Right now the communication is lost, we will try to establish a link for the next 14 days."
