@indianairforce @gaganyaan1 #MissionGaganyaan - IAF completed Level-1 of the Indian Astronaut selection at Institute of Aerospace Medicine (IAM). Selected Test Pilots underwent extensive physical exercise tests, lab investigations, radiological tests, clinical tests and evaluation on various facets of their psychology.
Repost @chandrayan2 Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram intact, but tilted, near planned landing site. "We are making all-out efforts to see whether communication can be re-established with the lander," an ISRO official said.Chandrayaan-2 comprises an orbiter, lander (Vikram) and rover (Pragyan).The mission life of the lander and rover is one Lunar day, which is equal to 14 earth days. BENGALURU: The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) is yet to reestablish contact with the Vikram lander, three days after the lunar probe made a “hard landing” during its final descent to the moon, according to scientists aware of the developments. The Chandrayaan-2 orbiter, which has eight instruments on board including a high-resolution camera that can take pictures as small as 0.3 metres across, has captured images of Vikram on the lunar surface. The lander was found ‘tilted’ close to its designated landing spot in the lunar south pole region, a scientist said, raising concerns that its communications equipment could have been damaged. “Our efforts to connect with Vikram have not stopped,” said an Isro scientist. “It is a huge task as we need to activate the power controls. The solar panels that will power the systems are delicate and we don’t know their status,” the official said. Isro chairman K Sivan was not immediately available for comment. An Isro spokesperson did not respond to calls. On Saturday, Isro had lost contact with Vikram — which is carrying the ‘Pragyan’ rover — when it was 2.1 km above the lunar surface. #VikramLander #ISROMissions #chandrayaan2 #ISRO
#ISROMissions It's been four years since MarsOrbiter successfully got inserted into Martian orbit on September 24, 2014 in its first attempt. #MOM's mission life was expected to be six months! So far, the Mars Colour Camera has acquired 980+ images. Mars Atlas is also ready.
We've found the location of #VikramLander on lunar surface&orbiter has clicked a thermal image of Lander. But there is no communication yet. We are trying to have contact. It will be communicated soon. -Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chief, K Sivan to ANI #Chandrayaan2 https://t.co/1MbIL0VQCo
Chandrayaan-2 mission was a highly complex mission, which represented a significant technological leap compared to the previous missions of ISRO, which brought together an Orbiter, Lander and Rover to explore the unexplored south pole of the Moon. Since the launch of Chandrayaan-2 on July 22, 2019, not only India but the whole world watched its progress from one phase to the next with great expectations and excitement. This was a unique mission which aimed at studying not just one area of the Moon but all the areas combining the exosphere, the surface as well as the sub-surface of the moon in a single mission. The Orbiter has already been placed in its intended orbit around the Moon and shall enrich our understanding of the moon’s evolution and mapping of the minerals and water molecules in the Polar Regions, using its eight state-of-the-art scientific instruments. The Orbiter camera is the highest resolution camera (0.3m) in any lunar mission so far and shall provide high resolution images which will be immensely useful to the global scientific community. The precise launch and mission management has ensured a long life of almost 7 years instead of the planned one year. The Vikram Lander followed the planned descent trajectory from its orbit of 35 km to just below 2 km above the surface. All the systems and sensors of the Lander functioned excellently until this point and proved many new technologies such as variable thrust propulsion technology used in the Lander. The success criteria was defined for each and every phase of the mission and till date 90 to 95% of the mission objectives have been accomplished and will continue contribute to Lunar science , notwithstanding the loss of communication with the Lander.
@chandrayan2 It carries not only a lunar rover, but also the hopes and dreams of a billion Indians.” Make sure you’re there to witness history in the making. Tune in to the live broadcast a #IndiaMakesHistory on 7th September, 12:30 AM on National Geographic and Hotstar. #Chandrayaan2Live #NatGeoStarstruck #Chandrayaan2
Few hours to go ❤️Rate the illustrations by one of our designer @akash_jagtap 🇮🇳
We have the same wishes for Vikram, Orbiter. Want to stay in touch with Vikram and Pragyan as they make their way to the untouched lunar South Pole and uncover its many mysteries? Then keep an eye out for the next edition of #CY2Chronicles! https://t.co/2iA8W2lxtR
#ISRO The first de-orbit maneuver for #VikramLander of #Chandrayaan2 spacecraft was performed successfully today (September 03, 2019) at 0850 hrs IST. For details please visit https://t.co/K5dS113UJL Here's view of Control Centre at ISTRAC, Bengaluru https://t.co/Ddeo2URPg5
Chandrayaan-2 update: Vikram Lander successfully separates from Orbiter The Vikram Lander successfully separated from Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter at 1315 Hrs IST today (September02, 2019). The Vikram Lander is currently located in an orbit of 119 km x 127 km. The Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter continues to orbit the Moon in its existing orbit. The health of the Orbiter and Lander is being monitored from the Mission Operations Complex (MOX) at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network (ISTRAC) in Bengaluru with support from Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN) antennas at Bylalu, near Bengaluru. All the systems of Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter and Lander are healthy. The next maneuver is scheduled tomorrow (September 03, 2019) between 0845-0945 hrs IST
