China’s historic moon landing, detection of First Radio Bursts from outer space & interstellar visitors were other big stories from the world of space.
NASA has acknowledged it was able to identify the impact site and debris of Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram lander after a tip from Chennai-based engineer Shanmuga Subramanian.
Vikram hard landed within 500 m of the designated landing site, MoS in Prime Minister's Office Jitendra Singh says in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha.
A senior ISRO official said the space agency was considering a Chandrayaan-3 mission and has tasked a committee with drawing up a report for the same by year end.
Inserted into lunar orbit on 8 November 2008, Chandrayaan-1 was instrumental in discovering water on the moon, and had a brief tiff with NASA over this.
ISRO has released details of data captured by two payloads — an infrared imager and a solar x-ray monitor.
ISRO had suspended search operations 10 days ago when the lunar night began. The space agency lost contact seconds before Vikram Lander was scheduled to land on the moon.
The lunar night has officially begun over the Vikram landing spot. Here's what’s next with the orbiter, NASA’s camera, and ISRO.
K. Sivan says all technologies of the Chandrayaan-2 mission have proved accurate except for the soft landing.
ISRO’s ambitious Vikram lander will die today as the lunar night sets in, two weeks after it went off the radar minutes before touchdown.
