Chandrayaan-2 Vikram Lander Loses Contact To Moon : What’s Next?
India’s second lunar mission Chandrayaan-2 faced some technical difficulties and ISRO’s mission control room lost contact with Lander Vikram just before it touches the moon surface.
According to the ISRO the landers trajectory was correct until the lander was only 2.1 km away to touch moon surface. But then the disaster happend, the ISRO lost contact with lander. This brings the massive tide of sorrow to every Indians face. Scientists are analysing the data to find out the cause of error in communication.
The faces of scientist at that time when they lost contact with the lander was enough to say it all. The Prime Minister Narendra D. Modi was there to witness the soft landing of lander.
Chandrayaan-2 was bound for the first lunar mission to explore the south pole of moon which has been never explored by any other country yet.
So question is “What is the next move from the ISRO? Is ISRO done with the moon exploraton?” No… ISRO already announced Chandrayaan-3 lunar mission planned to take off in 2024. Israel’s lunar mission to monn faced the same problem happend with the Chandrayaan-2 few months ago.
Besides, it was fabulous and brave attempt from India and dispites it’s failure. It demonstrates the world that how far ISRO has gone in the space exploration program.
