The Indian Space Research Organisation sustained to make all-out efforts to establish link with Chandrayaan-2’s ‘Vikram’ lander, now lying on the lunar surface after a hard-landing. Vikram, with rover ‘Pragyan’ detained inside it, hit the lunar surface after communication with the ground-stations was lost throughout its final descent, just 2.1 km above the lunar surface, in the early hours of Saturday. “It had a hard-landing very close to the planned (touch-down) site as per the images sent by the on-board camera of the orbiter. The lander is there as a single piece, not broken into pieces. It’s in a tilted position,” an ISRO official associated with the mission claimed on Monday.”We are making all-out efforts to see whether communication can be re-established with the lander,” the official said. “An ISRO team is the on the job at ISROTelemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) here.”Chandrayaan-2 comprises an orbiter, lander (Vikram) and rover (Pragyan).The mission life of the lander and rover is one Lunar day, which is equal to 14 earth days.ISRO: Efforts To Re-establish Contact With Chandrayaan-2 Lander To Pursue For 14 Days..!!-naadle
