Chandrayaan 2 orbiter performing well: ISRO


Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief K Sivan on September 26, Thursday said that Chandrayaan 2 orbiter is performing very well and has started carrying out all the payload experiments.

Speaking to media, Sivan further added that they had not received a signal from the lander and a national-level committee is presently analyzing over losing communication of the lander.

Sivan had also mentioned that after the submission of the report, they would also work on the future plan. Necessary approvals and other processes are also required and the committee is also working on the same.

Recently, Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram had an unsuccessful landing on the moon’s south pole. Just before the landing, ISRO lost connection with it. Earlier, it was trying for 15 days to establish contact with the Vikram lander but so far the communication hasn’t been made successfully.
