The Chandrayaan-2 lunar lander Vikram, built by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), is scheduled to land amid the craters of the moon's south pole today (Sept. 6). Touchdown is scheduled for sometime between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. EDT (2000-2100 GMT, 1:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. Sept. 7 IST). ISRO will live stream the landing in a webcast beginning at 3:40 p.m. EDT (1940 GMT, 1:10 a.m. IST).

Here hoping all goes well


You can watch it live at the ISRO website.

Also at Space.com here.

Chandrayaan-1 only had an orbiter. Chandrayaan-2 has an orbiter, lander and rover. Get ready for some new moon pics.

Can't wait to watch!

Still though, I'm bummed its unmanned.
Supposedly man walked on the moon some decades ago- yet in my lifetime I've barely even seen probes go there.

I think our TV set at the time was steam powered?

Its happening at 8:40pm tonight UK time.
I hope they have decent cameras and a reliable satellite link to Earth.
Looking forward to it.

BTW way I was looking up the meaning of the names-

Vikram(Hindi) means "Valorous" or "Strong" or "Stride" as far as I can gather.
And Chandrayaan(Sanskrit) means "Moon craft" or Moon vehicle."

I love the idea they actually had a word for "moon craft" back when Sanskrit was used,approx 4000 years ago.


Jai ho Chandrayaan

Father was electrical engineer - explained the early attempts at color TV

RCA (which was part of GE where he worked) had the 3 color gun system Red Green Blue which activated phosphors on screen

RCA owned NBC at time

Then there was the CBS system pushed by CBS broadcasting - had a color disc which was rotated in front of screen

Sounded like a garbage disposal on high , gave much inferior picture But CBS used its influence to keep broadcasting
industry from adopting the superior RCA system for years

No, you're thinking of the rocket.

Oh dear..
Looks like they stopped recievimg signals from the lander as it got to 100meters above the lunar surface.
They are trying to analyse the data now.
Not looking good

Hopefully they can continue the mission with the orbiter, but if they lost the rover that's a big blow for them.

No reason to fake a failed landing.

Is there

I watched it on my way home tonight. It is sad, but they took it good and still have the orbiter.

Space ain't easy and the only way to learn is to fail (or hack the US and pay Russia, like China did).

You never know, there is still a slim chance they could still make contact with the lander.
