The Chandrayaan 2 mission status remains unknown after its lander Vikram began final descent towards the moon and had lost contact with ground control when it was 2.1 km from reaching the south pole of the moon’s surface.

ISRO Chairperson K Sivan briefed PM Narendra Modi who was at its headquarters to witness what would have been a historic achievement. Also, Sivan told media persons that ISRO was analyzing the data last the lander had sent.

Moreover, PM Modi hugged and consoled ISRO Chief Sivan when the latter broke down as the lander Vikram lost communication.

Earlier, PM Modi on Friday urged people of the nation to witness the special moments of Chandryaan-2 as it was to land on the Lunar South Pole. He wrote-

“I urge you all to watch the special moments of Chandrayaan – 2 descending on to the Lunar South Pole! Do share your photos on social media. I will re-tweet some of them too.”

Also, he tweeted-

“I have been regularly and enthusiastically tracking all updates relating to Chandrayaan – 2 since it was launched on 22nd July 2019. This Mission manifests the best of Indian talent and spirit of tenacity. Its success will benefit crores of Indians.”

According to a timeline released by ISRO, the lander Vikram was landing at 1:53 AM at the rover Pragyan was scheduled to roll down at 5:19 AM. A successful landing would have made India the fourth nation (apart from the US, USSR, and China) to land the vessel on the moon’s surface and the third country to operate a robotic rover.

ISRO is yet to formally announce what happened to Chandrayaan 2, whether or not it landed on the moon as well the status of the mission. Meanwhile, the social media users from all over India showered support and praises for ISRO’s efforts in taking India so close to the moon.

As per the reports, an estimated $140 million mission, known as Chandrayaan-2, aimed to study permanently shadowed moon craters that are believed to contain water deposits as confirmed by the Chandrayaan 1 mission back in 2008.

The Indian moon mission began on 22 July from the Satish Dhawan space center in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh. Post its launch, Chandrayaan 2 took several weeks to make its way to the moon and finally entered the lunar orbit on 20 August.

On 2 September, Vikram separated from the mission’s orbiter, and the lander started with a series of braking maneuvers to lower its orbit and prepare for the descend.
