A big information has come out about Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram. According to ISRO, Vikram is safe and there is no breakage.
An ISRO official said that we are making every effort to reestablish communication with the lander. He said that we have not given up hope. On Saturday, when the lander Vikram was just 2.1 kilometers from the lunar surface, lost the communication.
On Sunday, ISRO again traced the location of Lander Vikram on the lunar surface. K Sivan himself, the chairman of ISRO confirmed this. According to ISRO, the orbiter also clicked a thermal image of Vikram Lander.
Vikram Lander has fallen on the moon ground about 500 meters away from its fixed place, but if ISRO gets in touch with it then It can stand back on its feet. According to ISRO’s trusted sources, Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram Lander has the technology that it can stand on its own even after its fall, but it is necessary for it to contact its communication system and receive commands. Although the hopes of this work being successful are only 1% but ISRO scientists believe that at least one percent has lot of hope.
ISRO sources said that there are five thrusters on the underside of Vikram Lander. Through which it had to make a soft landing on the surface of the moon. Apart from this, thrusters are also installed around the Vikram Lander, which were turned on to decide its direction while traveling in space.
These thrusters are still safe. The part of the lander where the communication antenna is pressed, the same part also has thrusters. If the command sent from the ground station located on the earth is received directly or through the orbiter by the antenna then its thrusters can be turned on. When the thrusters are turned on, Vikram can rise from one side and stand on its feet. If this happens, all the experiments related to this mission will be possible, which ISRO scientists had already decided about Chandrayaan-2.
