Now, with India's lunar orbiter having spotted the crashed lander from above, there's one question on everyone's mind: Is it alive?

ISRO had on August 21 performed second lunar bound orbit manoeuvre for Chandrayaan-2 and said all spacecraft parameters are normal.

Chennai: The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is continuing its attempt to reach out to moon lander Vikram which was a part of the Chandrayaan 2 project by sending communication signals with its Deep Space Network (DSN), ISRO officials said. ISRO chairman K Sivan had described the crucial last-minute moments earlier as "15 minutes of terror" when Lander Vikram would go independent, with zero contact from ground control to supervise it. While the official statements from ISRO have said that attempts are being made to establish contact with the lander, new reports have emerged to state there is little hope of it.

If any of this sounds familiar it's likely because this is nearly exactly what happened to Israel's Beresheet lander when it made its landing attempt back in April. Fourteen days or one lunar day is all that the lander has to do its job as that's the only period it will be exposed to the Sun's rays.

After the failed lunar landing attempt, everyone from the President and Prime Minister of India to other popular public figures, citizens, and people all around the world had praised the efforts put forward by ISRO. After this would be a long cold night and during this time the systems will not survive. If NASA or ISRO, the Chinese National Space Agency or the European Space Agency were to disappear from the face of Earth, how will you know what's beyond the blue skies? The lander is equipped with three transponders and a phased array antenna. There is also the probability that the impact shock may have damaged the lander. Then there could be additionally clinical compare that's occurring simultaneously in dwelling merely now that would also cure ailments and lengthen human lives, experiments that would also not were carried out on Earth? ISRO is yet to confirm if the lander is generating power or not.

The images of the site could help ISRO with its analysis.
