Topic: Chandrayaan 2 - Big Takeaways

Topic Description:

It's been over three days that Chandrayaan -2's lander Vikram lost contact with its ground stations. But the Indian Space Research Organisation has not lost hope.

The space agency's team is making all efforts to restore communication with the lander at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network in Bengaluru On Monday. Hope revived for crores of Indians after the lander was spotted by the on-board cameras on the orbiter. Images showed the lander is intact, lying in a tilted position, with rover Pragyan possibly still confined inside. But despite what happened to the lander, Chandrayaan-2 mission achieved 90 to 95 per cent of its objectives.

The orbiter is healthy, safe and in Lunar orbit. It is expected to provide extensive information about the Moon, and also what minerals and water it has.
