Is the Vikram Lander intact? In a statement from ISRO, officials said the lunar orbiter will now be operational for seven years. The team of ISRO scientists is attempting to re-establish contact with the lander.
Earlier on Sunday, ISRO chief K Sivan had announced that the lunar lander of Chandrayaan 2 had been located on the moon's surface and that the ground station was working to establish contact.
The prayers included "abishekam" (celestial bath), which was performed with several items, including honey and sandal paste and followed by a community feast (Annadhanam), a temple official said on Tuesday. The battery of Vikram Lander, which is carrying the Pragyan Rover, has an expected life of 14 days, so ISRO has another 12 days to establish communication with the craft. 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.
"The lander is there (on the Moon) as a single piece, not broken into pieces". However, it would provide new information on the Moon's scarcely-explored south pole region.
"After communication with the lander was lost, we chose to offer special prayers seeking Moon God's intervention to regain contact with the lander and it was held on Monday", V Kannan, temple manager told PTI.
ISRO officially did not comment on the condition of the lander.
Scores of fake Twitter accounts of Sivan had emerged on September 7-8, shortly after his popularity peaked due to the Chandrayaan 2 mission. The Lander was scheduled to land on the Moon's South Pole, a mission never attempted. The precise launch and mission management has ensured a long life of nearly seven years instead of the planned one year.
