India's Chandrayaan-2 project was not successful but Pakistan's first female astronaut Namira Salim greeted India Space Research Organization (ISRO).

Earlier, Pakistan's science minister Fawad Hussein had sharply criticized India for the same incident.

Namira Saleem said, "I salute India and ISRO for the historic efforts of Lander Vikram's Soft Landing at the Moon's South Pole."

She added that the expedition is a really big step in space research. This will benefit the whole world, not just India or Southwestern Asians.

Namira sailed from Sir Richard Branson Virgin Galactic Space Line as the first female astronaut in Pakistan. She was the first woman to skydive on Mount Everest.

On Friday, Lander Vikram was supposed to set foot at 1:53 am local time on Friday. But Lander Vikram was disconnected about 2.1 km before the moon.
