Hailing the achievements of the country's scientists, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said Chandrayaan-2 was a successful mission and it had generated curiosity about science among the youth. Noting that no country in the world would progress without science and technology, Modi said unlike other aspects of life, people should not expect immediate results from scientific researches.
