Reportedly according to Nobel laureate Serge Haroche, who said on Wednesday that Indian Space Research Organization (Isro) scientists will certainly try to fix the problem with india's first moon lander. Haroche, 75, told "I don't know what happened with this (moon lander Vikram) but they will certainly try to solve the problem," on the sidelines of the 'Nobel Prize Series india 2019' event here, near the state capital Chandigarh.

Furthermore an optimistic Haroche, who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2012, said failures occur in science. Perhaps Haroche said the equipment had worked up to the last stage and then "you have some kind of failure". Further the problem, he said, was that there was too much expectation and excessive media attention around the mission, and "when you lose, you take the risk that when there is a failure, there is a big amplification of disappointment and so on".



The Nobel laureate, who is a member of the French and European Academies of Sciences said "In india we have good education in mathematics, in theoretical physics and in astro physics. I think we need to put money into small scale physics projects even if it doesn't have the media attention to the big projects like moon landing". Moreover in response to another query, he said "The politicians have to understand that they have to invest a lot of money for longer period of time in basic research."
