ISRO officials say that 95 per cent of the Chandrayaan 2 is still safe. The orbiter will keep circling the moon and also click pictures for 1 year.

The Vikram Lander lost contact with the control room and this was heartbreaking for the entire nation. However, what must bear in mind is that this is a setback and not a failure.

The Chandrayaan 2 Orbiter still remains in operation and will continue to study the moon. It can take pictures of the moon and send it to ISRO. The Orbiter has a 1,000 watt electric power generation capacity. It can take pictures of the moon over the next one year.

The Orbiter features 8 science experiments that include, Terrain Mapping Camera 2, Large Area Soft X-ray Spectrometer, Imaging IR Spectrometer, Solar X-ray Monitor, Orbiter High-Resolution Camera, Dual Frequency Synthetic Aperture Radar, Chandrayaan-2 Atmospheric Explorer 2 and Dual Frequency Radio Science payload says an article in nasaspaceflight.com.
