Neeraj Verma & Rashmi travelled all the way to from #Nagpur to #Sriharikota to witness the historic #Chandrayaan2 take off. I asked them what do they do for a living? Their answer amazed me, We are science activists (vigyaanan sevak) said the couple. Like how? #IndiaMoonMission
The couple travelled more than 1100 KM's to reach #Sriharikota from their village near #Nagpur border to be a part of @isro #Chandrayan2 launch

The couple travelled for more than 20 hours & reached #Sriharikota on 15th July, but the launch was called off in the last minute
They went back to their village & by the time they reached home the next launch date was announced

There is a tremendous amount of details surrounding this one mission, with good reason: it's India's most complex robotic mission to date. A #PSLV launching a hundred satellites into different orbits pales compared to what's going on here. E.g., the rocket itself 2/n
