Trending News: Communication Lost with Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover in Chandrayaan 3 Mission

India’s Chandrayaan-3 mission has now entered its final phase, with scientists continuously attempting to establish contact with the Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover. Over the past month, ISRO’s scientists have made multiple efforts to establish contact with the Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover, but these efforts have not yielded success. With darkness set to envelop the lunar surface within the next three to four days, the possibility of re-establishing contact is rapidly diminishing. It is now believed that if contact is not made within two or three days, this mission will reach its ultimate conclusion. However, this does not mean that valuable lunar information will be lost entirely, as Chandrayaan-3’s propulsion module continues to function.

The primary objective of Chandrayaan-3’s propulsion module initially involved precisely positioning the Vikram Lander in the vicinity of the Moon. The propulsion module has performed this task admirably, and ISRO is currently making the most of the ship, named “Shap,” that is part of this module. Shap will continue to explore exoplanets and small celestial bodies in space for at least the next four to five months. It’s worth noting that the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched the Chandrayaan-3 mission on August 23rd, successfully landing in the southern polar region of the Moon. This historic achievement made India the first country to accomplish a soft landing on the Moon’s southern pole.

While the communication setback with the Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover is disappointing, the Chandrayaan-3 mission has already contributed significantly to lunar exploration. The information gathered during its time on the Moon’s surface and the data transmitted back to Earth will continue to benefit scientific research and our understanding of the lunar environment.

As the Chandrayaan-3 mission moves into its final phase, the scientific community eagerly awaits any potential breakthrough in communication with the Vikram Lander and Pragyan Rover. Regardless of the outcome, India’s commitment to space exploration remains unwavering, and the lessons learned from this mission will undoubtedly shape future endeavors in lunar and planetary exploration.
