Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has lost hope to recover communication with Chandrayaan-2’s Lander Vikram on Lunar surface. The Lander and rover Prajyan within it has a scheduled the 14-day span which ends on September 21. Lander Vikram disconnected communication from the ISRO 2.1 km from lunar surface, minutes left
Saturday onwards, 14th earth nights will commence in the South Pole region with temperature of 240 degrees Celsius and the electronic components of lander Vikram and rover Pragyan will likely to spoil in such freezing temperature.
Vikram Lander of Chandrayaan-2 is found to be in a tilted position and in an unbroken state. The Lander is 500 m away from the scheduled place to be landed on lunar surface.
'We have found the location of the Vikram Lander on Lunar surface and orbiter clicked a thermal image of Lander’, the Space Agency confirmed.
The 95% of the Chandrayaan-2 mission is the orbiter and ISRO expressed relaxation that the orbiter is orbiting around the Moon still. 95% of the experiments are with the orbiter, Chris G writer and Managing Editor at Nasa Space flight said. He said ‘’The orbiter is safely in Lunar
ISRO attempt to launch robotic space craft on Moon's South Pole could not find success. The Space agency lost contact with the space craft Vikram Lander at 2.1 km altitude from the lunar surface. The space craft diverged the path as planned by ISRO moments before it was to land
The mission is to explore Lunar craters in the South pole which is untouched by Sun light over billions of years. This unexplored Lunar region also to be disclosed the secret of solar system’s origin. The area is understood to be water filled area with 100 million tonnes of water.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to watch the historical moment of Chandrayaan -2 landing on Lunar surface at Satheesh Dhavan Space . Chandrayaan=2 is scheduled to make soft landing on Lunar surface in between 1.30 am and 2.30 am on Saturday on September 7.
Chandrayaan -2 lander Vikram reached more close to Lunar surface. Using the special propulsion system, the lander reached entered at the 35-97 km orbit closer to the lunar surface,
A day after severed from the orbiter on Monday, Chandrayaan -2 reached closer to the Lunar surface. Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram and rover Prajyan completed de-orbiting manoeuvre at 8.50 am on Tuesday. Vikram is circling around the orbit 104 x 128, the maximum closest point of the orbit.
