The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) lost contact with Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram on last Saturday when it attempted landing on the Moon.
And for now, ISRO is continuing its attempt to reach out to India’s moon lander sending communication signals with its Deep Space Network (DSN), said ISRO officials.
- DSN supports both NASA and non-NASA missions that seek to explore the furthest points of our solar system.
- 14 days or one lunar day is all that the lander has to do its tasks.
NASA Attempts To Contact With Lander Vikram
The Space Agency of USA, National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA) is also making multiple attempts to elicit a response from India’s lander Vikram that is lying motionless and tilted on the Moon.
The connection between the Chandrayaan 2 orbiter and Vikram lander snapped on the early hours of September 7, which is when ISRO had planned its soft-landing on the moon surface.
So, while ISRO has been trying to establish contact with the lander Vikram, NASA too has joined hands with ISRO.
As days pass, Chandrayaan 2’s lander Vikram’s revival hope will also diminish because of the 14-day period.
