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

contact
On Monday 12 November 2007, representatives of ISRO and the Russian Space Agency (Roskosmos) signed an agreement to work together on the Chandrayaan-2 project.  [21] The main responsibility of the orbiter and the rover will be with ISRO and the Roskosmos will be responsible for the lander.

 The campaign was approved by the Government of India in a meeting of the Union Cabinet held under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on 18 September 2008. [22] The design of the spacecraft was completed in August 2009, in which scientists of both countries gave their joint contribution  Given. [23] [24]

 Although ISRO finalized the payload as per Chandrayaan-2 program. [25] But the campaign was postponed to January 2013. [26] and rescheduled the operation for 2016.  Because Russia was unable to develop the lander in time.  [27] [28] Roskosmos was subsequently dropped from the Chandrayaan-2 program due to a failure in the Phobos-Grunt expedition to Mars. [27] And India decided to develop the lunar mission independently.  Done. 1.  It is the first space mission to conduct a Soft landing on the south polar region of the Moon.

 2. The first Indian mission, which will attempt a soft landing on the lunar surface with domestic technology.

 3. The first Indian mission, which will attempt to explore the lunar region with domestic technology.

 4. 4th country that will make a soft landing on the lunar surface.

 Orbiter
 The orbiter will orbit the moon at an altitude of 100 km. [31]  In this campaign, it has been decided to send the orbiter with five payloads.  Three payloads are new, while two others are improved versions of the payload being sent to the Chandrayaan-1 orbiter.  It will weigh about 1400 kg at the time of flight.  The Orbiter High Resolution Camera will give the high resolution picture of the landing site before the lander separates from the orbiter. [1] [31] The interface between the orbiter and its GSLV launch vehicle is finalized. [32]  At launch, the Chandrayaan 2 orbiter will be able to communicate with the Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN) at Bayalu as well as the Vikram lander.  The mission life of the orbiter is one year and will be placed in a 100X100 km long lunar polar orbit.

 Lander

 Chandrayaan 2's lander is named after Dr. Vikram A. Sarabhai, the father of the Indian space program.  It is designed to function for one lunar day, equivalent to approximately 14 Earth days. Byelu has the ability to communicate with IDSNs as well as orbiters and rovers at Bayalu, near Bangalore.  The lander is designed to execute a soft landing on the lunar surface. Unlike the Moon Impact Probe of the Chandrayaan-1 hitting the lunar surface, the lander will descend slowly.  [29] The lander will not perform any scientific activities.  The lander and rover will weigh about 1250 kg.  Initially, the lander was expected to be developed by Russia in cooperation with India.  When Russia expressed its inability to develop the lander before 2015.  So the Indian authorities decided to develop the lander independently.  Russia meant to cancel the lander.  That the mission profile will change.  The study of the initial configuration of the indigenous lander was completed in 2013 by the Space Applications Center (SAC), Ahmedabad.

The optical high resolution camera (OHRC) mounted in Chandrayaan-2's orbiter has taken a picture of Vikram Lander. In this, Vikram Lander has fallen headlong 500 meters away from the fixed place of soft landing.

Scientists are trying to send a message to Vikram Lander through Orbiter.

After data analysis, you will know how much work Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover will do.
ISRO (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.
Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Chief, K Sivan to ANI: We've found the location of #VikramLander on lunar surface & orbiter has clicked a thermal image of Lander. But there is no communication yet. We are trying to have contact. It will be communicated soon. # Chandrayaan2 pic.twitter.com/1MbIL0VQCo
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.
