New Delhi: India has registered its name in the pages of history by sending Vikram Lander under Chandrayaan-2 mission to the south pole of the moon. However, contact with scientists of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) broke down about 2.1 km from the lunar surface of Vikram Lander. At present, scientists are analyzing his data.

Let me tell you that even if the contact with the scientists has been lost with Vikram Lander, but the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter on the moon's orbit will do research on the moon for a whole year and remove the curtain from its secrets. PM Modi has also mentioned this in his address on Saturday.

For this Chandrayaan-2 orbiter has very powerful equipment. Chandrayaan-2 orbiter weighs 2,379 kg. It is 3.2 * 5.8 * 2.1 meters large. Its mission life is of 1 year. This orbiter has to play an important role in the entire Chandrayaan-2 mission. Through this, contact is to be made between Vikram Lander, Pragyan Rover and ISRO scientists on earth. It will be present on the moon's orbit.

This will bring information from Vikram Lander and Rover Ignition on the lunar surface to the scientists on earth. However, scientists have lost contact with Vikram Lander. But ISRO scientists have not predicted a crash. He says that his data is being analyzed. 95 percent payload of Chandrayaan-2 mission is working. Meaning all the instruments of the orbiter are functioning smoothly.
