An ode to the brilliant minds who are working on taking humanity to new heights

India sent a lander this September to the lunar south pole. One of the most difficult places to land on the lunar surface. Many countries have tried to achieve this feat and failed honorably. India also showed valiant effort in achieving this feat but the lander was just 1.5 mi / 2.7 km from the lunar surface and lost ground communications. I have been an ardent space exploration nerd and was very much disheartened when this happened. So, I decided to pay homage to the brilliant minds at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) who worked on the Chandrayaan-2 mission. Though the mission lost contact it won many many hearts.

Space is HARD !!!!

I made this short animation completely using React, Three JS and react-three-fiber as my form of tribute to all the people working on such kind of missions.
