"From there, it's really going to be a tough job. On-board cameras will be mapping the terrain, sending the pictures to us. Then we will have to select the appropriate location and see that in the exact location it descends slowly to the surface," Mr Nair said in an interview to PTI.
"It's a very, very complex operation. I don't think any nation has done a similar operation trying to have real time pictures and then try to have an on-board computer implement autonomously the function of the landing. It's going to be a remarkable event and we are all looking forward to that event. I am sure it will be a 100 per cent success," he said.
On soft-landing on the Moon, he said its something like flying saucers coming in hovering on the top and then slowly descending, as in science fiction.

Anyway, the Orbiter will carry on. The Lander's contribution will be experience and some data from closer orbits.

Tipu Sultan, the tiger of Mysore, should surely surely surely have had some major component named after him, AS HE ACTUALLY USED ROCKETS EFFECTIVELY FOR INDIA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN INDIAN HISTORY. I mean, what on earth was stopping your wonderful space agency from giving credit where credit is due? Hmm. I wonder what could possibly possibly be the reason This Indian advancement meant "for ALL indians" so blatantly overlooked the guy who pretty much introduced the concept of rocketry to India?

Quote:Vikram could not play its intended role of achieving a soft-landing and enabling the robotic rover Pragyan to roll out, to conduct lunar surface exploration, its hard impact on the lunar surface has left a little crater, big enough for Chandrayaan-2’s powerful Imaging Infra-Red Spectrometer (IIRS)
Quote:Another ISRO scientist said Vikram, weighing 1,471 kg (245 kg on moon as its gravity is one-sixth that of earth’s), would have raised a considerable lunar dust plume on impacting the lunar surface near the south pole although the velocity with which it impacted was much less than that of the MIP, weighing 34 kg (5.6 kg on moon).
