Chandrayaan-2: 95% of mission objectives accomplished, says ISRO

DD News
ISRO says despite the loss of communication with Vikram Lander, 90 to 95 per cent of the mission objectives have been accomplished.

In a statement, it said the Orbiter has already been placed in the orbit around the moon.

This 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 ISRO said the Orbiter camera is the highest resolution camera in any lunar mission so far and shall provide high-resolution images which will be immensely useful to the global scientific community.

The statement said 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. 

The chairman of the Indian Space Research organization, Dr K Sivan says that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech at the space centre is a source of inspiration for scientists.

In an interview to Prasar Bharti, he said, the speech will keep all of us motivating.
