If you are an Indian then irrespective of which part of the world you are living in, the words ‘Chandrayaan’, ‘Vikram’ or ‘Pragyan’ are bound to bring a smile on your face and a sense of pride in your heart! You too have been carried off in the wave of happiness that is sweeping millions off the ground right now.
Don’t know what we are talking about?
Launched on July 22, 2019, Chandrayaan-2 (Sanskrit for ‘mooncraft’) is the second lunar exploration mission developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), after Chandrayaan-1. It consists of a lunar orbiter, the Vikram lander, and the Pragyan lunar rover, all of which were developed in India. The main scientific objective is to map the location and abundance of lunar water via Pragyan, and ongoing analysis from the orbiter circling at a lunar polar orbit of 100 × 100 km.
As per recent updates, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has managed to locate Vikram, the Chandrayaan-2 lander, on the Moon’s surface a day after losing contact with the craft. However, ISRO is yet to establish contact with Vikram; the space agency lost communications with the lander minutes before it was to land near the south pole of the Moon on Sept 7.
Happy Ho’s Master Healer and Tarot Card Reader, Dr. Nonah Khanna’s cards predict that Vikram will be found but maybe not in the desired condition. There are chances of technical snag or mechanical issue being present. But all is not lost yet; in the near future India will do wonders as far as space development is concerned.
