Chandrayaan-2 takes photos of craters on lunar surface

Chandrayaan-2

So, while ISRO has been trying to establish contact with the lander, NASA too has joined in.

Namira Salim, the first Pakistani set to travel to space, has congratulated the Indian Space and Research Organisation (ISRO) on the Chandrayaan-2 mission and its historic attempt to make a landing on the Moon.

There are reports saying that the American space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is helping ISRO by sending radio signals to reach out to India's moon lander.

However, on September 8, ISRO chairman K Sivan said that Vikram had been located on the lunar surface and that it must had been a hard-landing.

"Scott Tilley, an novice astronomer who discovered American climate satellite tv for pc IMAGE in 2018 that was thought-about to be misplaced, on September 10, tweeted: "#DSN 24 beams 12KW of RF on the #Moon in hopes of stimulating #Chandrayaan2's lander #VikramLander into speaking with residence.

Nonetheless this day as we have an even time Chandrayaan and India's most ambitious dwelling mission, there are obvious pertinent questions that come to my thoughts. First, its "passive payload" laser reflector array was installed on Vikram lander that was meant to track the lander's exact spot and also calculate the exact distance between Earth and Moon. He concluded that Chandrayaan-2 is done with 100% success for orbiter science and 95% success for landing technology. Second, Nasa is expecting a lot of significant data from the Chandrayaan-2's orbiter, which is loaded with eight advanced payloads.

ISRO has several future missions planned which include the human spaceflight mission, a joint mission with NASA and also a mission to the sun. This is because Nasa has plans to send a manned mission to the south pole by 2024 under its Artemis programme and it wants to enrich its knowledge about that region to plan its mission better. Communication can only be established if Vikram's antenna is pointing in the right direction, but no information of the lander's orientation, condition, or even its exact location is known yet. Those countries are the USSR, the United States, and China.
