What Happened to India's Observation Satellite?

India(ISRO),which has made great strides to join the lunar adventure, suffered a great misfortune in the last two kilometers of the mission to the southern pole of the moon. The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has lost unprovoked communication with the spacecraft "Vikram", with investigations from other observation satellites predicting that Vikram made a hard landing on the lunar surface.

Re-Ignited Lunar Adventure

Other countries are working to become the fourth country to put its name on the lunar adventure. It was a failed project because Israel's box satellite exploded in a bitter conflict. India, on the other hand, is very confident and has had experience with little investment. The Southeast Asian country was aiming to become the first country to land a vehicle at the moon's south pole.


The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), India's space mission center, sent the Chadrayaan-2 to this end. The country's prime minister, Narendra Modi, came to the Satish Dhawan Space Center to watch the Vikram module land. Later, it was announced that the Vikram landing device was moving as planned and envisaged up to 2.1 kilometers, after which the connection between the vehicle and the ground station was lost. Indian authorities are currently examining data from the vehicle.
