Chandrayaan-2 failed(not really), What's the reason behind it?
Updated: Sep 11, 2019
As we all know one of the biggest project cum historical achievement, i.e, we are talking about Chandrayaan-2. After all successful stages it was time to land the VIKRAM on the moon, but something just happened and ISRO lost communication with VIKRAM. Those 15 minutes were the most crucial moment of the whole mission. So let us find out what exactly happened in that crucial minutes.
According to all the information that our team collected, it is known that the performance of the lander was going accordingly as ISRO planned but when VIKRAM was just 400 M above the surface of the moon during the FINE BRAKING PHASE we lost the connection with the lander and we missed the moment of making the history just by few inches.
At ISTRAC center, it was noticed that VIKRAM had slightly steered away from its plotted path, but had immediately come back at its plotted path. It was observed that at an altitude of about 5 KM from the Lunar surface, the lander slightly steered off its plotted position path before which later got back in its position and this situation happened before the loss of communication. While returning back to it's original plotted path the VIKRAM lander got slightly tilted, also landing process was happening at the same time, the 5th or the middle engine would be firing at that time which caused the lander to descent at a faster velocity which tumbled the VIKRAM lander.
So, this is what the case of the failure of mission "Chandrayaan-2".Still the probable cause of this situation is being analysed by the scientists at ISRO. The mission is still 95% successful and the good thing is that our Orbiter is still working fine. Now, recently it captured a thermal image in which the scientist were able to locate the VIKRAM lander.
FAILURES ARE THE PILLARS OF SUCCESS
WE INDIANS ARE PROUD OF ISRO FOR GIVING THEIR 100% & WE THANK YOU FOR SHOWING US THAT SCIENCE CAN UNITE A NATION COMPLETELY.
WE HOPE THAT THE CONNECTION TO THE VIKRAM WILL GET BACK ONLINE SOON. OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU ISRO.
