Chandrayaan-2 orbiter performing mission to complete satisfaction: ISRO

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on its Twitter handle has informed that Chandrayaan-2 orbiter continues to perform the scheduled science experiments to complete satisfaction. Meanwhile, the National Committee of Academicians and ISRO experts are still analysing the cause of communication loss with Vikram lander. ISRO further said that the initial trials for orbiter payloads were completed successfully and the performance of all orbiter payloads was satisfactory. Earlier this month, ISRO Chairman K Sivan had stated that the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter has clicked a thermal image of Vikram lander. Src: https://bit.ly/2mqOQcD

Hard landing may have disabled Vikram lander’s communication system: Former ISRO scientists

Recently the former Indian Space Research Organization(ISRO)'s former scientist have shaded new lights on India's pride and proud Chandrayaan-2. As per the media reports, the scientist has claimed that due to a hard landing on the Moon's surface, the communication system on ISRO’s Vikram lander could have been disrupted. Currently, ISRO is running out of time because the rover has a mission life of one Lunar day, which is equivalent to 14 earth days hence ISRO is left with very few days to bring Vikram back to life.

A week left for ISRO to reestablish contact with lander Vikram

Hopes are fading since our Lander Vikram, has lost the communication with ground-station early on September seven during its final descent, just 2.1 km above the lunar surface. Sincere efforts to restore the communications have been going on since then. Moreover a team at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network has been trying to restore the link with the lander as well. Media reports suggested that the lander was designed to execute a soft-landing on the lunar surface, and the rover has a mission life of one Lunar day, which is equivalent to 14 earth days -- that means ISRO now has just over a week to bring Vikram back to life.

Chandrayaan-2's mission life extends to 7 years: ISRO

"The Chandrayaan-2 orbiter was originally supposed to stay a year, will now remain operational for seven years", says the Indian Space Research Organisation. The extension of the life of orbiter would occur due to fuel savings during the trip to Moon. Meanwhile, the lander Vikram still remains out of contact, informed the media reports. A successful landing would have made India only the fourth country in the world to land a rover on the Moon and the only country in the world to perform a 'soft landing' near the lunar south pole.
