Chandrayaan 2 Live: ‘Only pictures from the Orbiter will reveal what actually happened’

The current status of the Chandrayaan 2 mission can only be speculated. If one or more of the retro engine(s) has malfunctioned during the descent, which led to the angle of descent and rate of descent not going as per planned parameters, in autonomous mode. It is possible that Vikram may still have landed but could get damaged/tilted. The extent of damage will decide the next course of action, if Rover may roll out and start communicating with the lander. It’s only when the pictures from the Orbitor, of the site of landing (soft or otherwise) are revealed with evidence and analysis, that we will we know what went through and what did not: Ratan Shrivastava, Independent Consultant, Aerospace, Defence & Space.

India makes a history by Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft. Vikram lander was about to land where no one has before on the moon but at the height of 2.1 km, ISRO lost communication from Vikram Lander. It was so close. And it was the first attempt by any country to reach the south pole. It’s not confirmed yet that Vikram lander makes soft landing or crashed landing.

The purpose of Chandrayaan-2 is to study the mysterious moon from top to bottom, including its topography, mineralogy, exosphere, elemental abundance and even possible seismic activity. With seven instruments aboard the orbiter, three aboard the lander and a further two attached to the rover, there will be no stone left unturned.

India’s Vikram lander and Pragyan rover are designed to last one lunar day (14 Earth days), though Chandrayaan-2 is expected to spend a full year studying the moon from above. The Chandrayaan-2 mission has a full cost of about 10 billion rupees (about $145 million),  ISRO officials have said.
