ISRO will have to wait 14 more days for signals from Vikram lander, Pragyan rover; Keep an eye on the new mission, know the details


After the success of Chandrayaan-3, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is increasing its knowledge about missions that can return samples to Earth.

The Indian Space Research Organization has extended its wait by 14 days to establish contact with Chandrayaan-3’s Vikram lander and Pragyan rover. As the moon’s temperature is rising, scientists are hoping that the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO)’s Vikram lander and Pragyan rover can launch again before the next lunar sunset on October 6.

ISRO chief S Somnath admitted that it was not clear when communication would be established with the Chandrayaan-3 instrument.

An attempt was made by ISRO to contact Vikram lander and Pragyan rover to determine their wake-up position, but no signal has been received so far. However, the space agency stressed that it would keep trying to make contact.

Despite the unpredictability, scientists are optimistic. The likelihood of revival is expected to increase as lunar days pass and surface temperatures increase. Lander Vikram has not gone through as much testing as the rover which has to endure such cold temperatures. However, Somnath pointed out that there are many similarities in the designs of Pragyan and Vikram, indicating that the tests that were successful for Pragyan should also be successful for Vikram.

The devices’ batteries were fully charged before going into sleep mode, and their solar panels were positioned to catch light as the lunar day began. The receiver was also kept operational so that, if necessary, the instruments could be revived and used to continue the investigation for the next 14 days under challenging conditions.

On the other hand, after the success of Chandrayaan-3, India’s third mission to the Moon, ISRO is working on missions that will bring data to Earth. According to officials, the Vikram lander’s landing on the lunar surface on September 3 was a step in that direction.

The ISRO official said, the space agency will prepare programs where samples based on experiments on the Moon can be brought back to Earth. “There is no definite timeline for this yet, but we are working on developing our system in such a way that it can make a return flight.”
