Chandrayaan-2: ISRO discovers Vikram Lander on the moon, tries to contact

World Comments Off 41

ISRO has come to know about the position of Vikram Lander on the moon. The orbiter has taken his picture with a thermal image camera. However, no communication has been established with him yet. It is also reported that Vikram Lander is 500 meters away from the fixed place of landing. The optical high resolution camera (OHRC) mounted in Chandrayaan-2’s orbiter has taken a picture of Vikram Lander.

Now ISRO is trying to send a message to Vikram Lander through scientific orbiter so that his communication system can be turned on. Trusted sources of ISRO told aajtak.in that a message is constantly being sent to Vikram Lander and Orbiter from ISRO Center in Bengaluru so that communication can be started.

ISRO chief K Sivan told that we have come to know about Vikram Lander, he has been seen on the surface of the moon. The orbiter has taken a thermal picture of the lander. But no communication has been established yet. We are trying to contact.

In future, how much work Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover will do, it will be known only after data analysis. ISRO scientists are now finding out why Vikram strayed from his path at 2.1 km altitude. One reason for this may also be that none of the small 4 steering engines installed on the side of Vikram lander has worked. Because of this, Vikram Lander got deviated from its fixed route. The whole problem started from here, so scientists are studying this point.

Apart from this, a photo of Vikram Lander will be taken from the optical high resolution camera (OHRC) in the orbiter circling around the moon. This camera can take a clear picture of anything up to 0.3 meters or 1.08 feet on the lunar surface.
