Had this been a Chinese project, and the head of Chinese space agency tried to peddle this obvious failure as a "95% success" like Mr. Sivan did, Chinese people would have pounded him so hard that he would have no choice but resign. BTW, what is the reason that ISRO is hiding the "thermal image of Vikram Lander" that Mr. Sivan claimed the Orbitor "Clicked"?

Talking about Chandrayaan-2, the Isro chief said that the mission has been 98 per cent successful with the orbiter performing very well.
"The orbiter's payload systems are functioning well. Certain payloads in the orbiter are first of their kind. The moon mission is 98 per cent successful,” he added.
On failing to communicate with the 'Vikram' lander, Sivan said they could not do much about that.
Sivan, however, said that the life span of Chandrayaan 2 is 7.5 years. “Don’t you think it is a success? It is really a big success. Except soft landing of lander Vikram, everything was okay,” he said.
