Chandrayaan 2 Vikram Lander on Moon
ISRO Lunar Orbiter to Take Pictures of Vikram Lander

The Chandrayaan-2 mission was launched on its course to the Moon from the second launch pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre on July 22, 2019, at 2.43 PM IST.

The craft reached the Moon’s orbit on August 20, 2019, but on September 7 a few hundred meters above the Moon Vikram lander of Chandrayaan-2 lost contact with the ground station. Now, a NASA probe is expected to reveal new information once it flies over the landing site on Tuesday, September 17.

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is expected to release the images that it takes of the lander,

NASA will share any before and after flyover imagery of the area around the targeted Chandrayaan-2 Vikram lander landing site to support analysis by the Indian Space Research Organisation. – The media reported

NASA’s Lunar Orbiter has been orbiting the Moon in an eccentric polar mapping orbit since its launch in 2009. It has made numerous groundbreaking discovering regarding Earth’s only natural satellite, and its data keeps providing the essential foundation for NASA’s future man and robotic moon missions.

The Chandrayaan-2 orbiter since been located and taken thermal images of the lander on the Moon ISRO has not provided any further details of its condition. As per NASA policy, all the data collected by the LRO will be made available publicly.
