PM Modi brought bad luck to ISRO, says Kumaraswamy on Chandrayaan-2

He was received by ISRO Chairman K Sivan, former ISRO Chairman K Kasturirangan and other scientists also welcomed him. He concluded that Chandrayaan-2 is done with 100% success for orbiter science and 95% success for landing technology. Following a hard landing that took place instead, Vikram lander has been lying motionless in a tilted position on the Moon.

ISRO has several future missions planned which include the human spaceflight mission, a joint mission with NASA and also a mission to the sun. We are analyzing the data.' No communications have been possible as of yet with the Vikram lander. It should be noted that ISRO has so far not released any images of Vikram landing site.

With the help of the images of the site provided by the NASA, it could actually help ISRO with its analysis.

"Attempts are being made to reestablish communication links with the moon lander Vikram".

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has managed to find to its moon lander Vikram on the lunar surface.


However, on September 8, ISRO chairman K Sivan said that Vikram had been located on the lunar surface and that it must had been a hard-landing.

"The attempts will be made till September 20-21 when the sunlight will be there in the area where the Vikram has landed", he said.

"This is a very groundbreaking development", she said, adding that the mission will pave way for better understanding and a new approach towards the Moon and missions for the scientists to come.

Why will the lander survive only 14 days? Vikram lander had the capability of communicating with the rover as well as the orbiter, transmitting important information from the Moon to Earth. During the lunar night period, instruments on board the lander could get damaged.
