Watch The Orbiter Of Chandrayaan 2 Will Ensure Its Scientific Mission Continues

India's space mission, Chandrayaan-2, comprises an orbiter, lander (Vikram) and rover (Pragyan).

"All possible efforts are being made to establish communication with lander", the state-run space agency said on Twitter. The question remains whether the orbiter can establish connection with the lander Vikram.

KARACHI: Pakistan's first female astronaut Namira Salim has congratulated the Indian Space and Research Organisation (Isro) on the Chandrayaan-2 mission and its historic attempt to make a landing on the Moon, worldwide media reported. Is it impossible? Not really, but it is really challenging, especially since a lot of the conditions including the position of the orbiter and lander's antennae, solar panels power, damage or impact and other factors must be ideal.

Chandrayaan-2's lander Vikram is unbroken but lying tilted on the surface of the Moon after a hard landing very close to the scheduled touchdown site, an ISRO official said on Monday. It is, however, not broken and the agency is continuing to re-establish contact with it. Minutes before its scheduled soft-landing, the communication with Vikram Lander was lost. "An ISRO team is on the job at the ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC)", he added.

"Chandrayaan-2 mission was a highly complex mission, which represented a significant technological leap compared to the previous missions of ISRO, which brought together an Orbiter, Lander and Rover to explore the unexplored south pole of the Moon".

"Only if it had a soft landing, and if all systems functioned, could communication be restored".

"We are trying to establish contact". Fourteen days is equivalent to one lunar day.

"The Orbiter has already been placed in its intended orbit around the Moon and shall enrich our understanding of the moon's evolution and mapping of the minerals and water molecules in the Polar Regions, using its eight state-of-the-art scientific instruments". The Vikram Lander followed the planned descent trajectory from its orbit of 35 km to just below 2 km above the surface.

What about the payloads and rover Pragyan? Moreover, the extent of shock also depends on how hard lander Vikram landed.
