Chandrayaan 2 – ISRO Launch to have crossed many barriers!

Quoting the time of terrifying 15 minutes, it was crucial phase for the team ISRO as the ticking beat. The world is resting on the hope that Chandrayaan-2’s lander Vikram did not crash as ISRO scientists are still trying to establish its communication with the orbiter.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • There is a possibility that Vikram crash landed on the lunar surface, sources said
  • Scientists try to find out from Vikram’s flight data recorder why it lost contact
  • Attempt being made to get a picture of lander with the help of orbiter camera

However, there is a possibility that India’s first Moon lander Vikram crash-landed on to the lunar surface resulting in the sudden snapping of the communication link with the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter.

Reliable sources in the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) agreed to the possibility of such an event. Now, with the help of the orbiter, an attempt is being made to take a photograph of Vikram.

Scientists are also trying to find out from the data of Vikram’s flight data recorder why it lost its way at an altitude of 2.1 km. A flight data recorder is a device like the black box of an aircraft.

Will Chandrayaan 2 have an impact on future missions?

P.G. Diwakar, who was earlier scientific secretary at the space agency and is now the Director of Earth Observations Applications and Disaster Management Programme Office at the ISRO headquarters in Bengaluru, said both Chandrayaan and Gaganyaan have different objectives and dimensions.

“There will be absolutely no problem at all. It will have no impact. The satellite missions as well as the human space flight mission will go very smoothly without any problem. Each mission is of a different type,” he said.

Diwakar, however, declined to comment on the reasons behind the glitches faced during the landing of Chandrayaan-2. The lander Vikram lost contact, just 2.1 kilometers above the lunar surface.
