ISRO Claims: Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter Unsecured, Upcoming Mission 'Gagnayan'

ISRO Claims: Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter Unsecured, Upcoming Mission 'Gagnayan'

Chandrayaan 2's landmark record comes amid a growing frustration over the disappointment of not having contact with ISRO. The Indian Space Agency today claimed that Chandrayaan-2's orbiter signature was safe and functioning properly.
      ISRO President K Sivan claimed that the orbiter has 8 instruments and all are working properly. However, he also stated that ISRO was not able to establish contact with the lander.

       Hence our next priority is the Gagnayan Mission. It may be recalled that ISRO has not been able to make any contact with Lander Vikram of Mission Chandrayan-2 till now. The hope of this mission is almost gone.

     The moon has just begun on Saturday morning. Due to this, this part of the moon is getting dark. Now when the night on this natural satellite moon has begun. The work of 'Vikram' has also expired.  It is worth mentioning that ISRO launched Mission Chandrayan-2 on July 22 from Satish Dhawan Special Center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.

       On September 7, Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram was scheduled to make a soft landing on the surface of the moon, but when the lander was only 2.1 km away from the moon, it lost contact with ISRO. After that, there was frustration among the people of the whole country with the scientists of ISRO. ISRO has been trying to contact Lander Vikram ever since.
