Contact from the lander to the ground stations was lost earlier in the day during its powered descent minutes before the planned touch-down. What was Chandrayaan-1? It made more than 3, orbits around the moon and was operational for at least days until August 29, It was launched aboard PSLV-C11 launch vehicle that successfully placed the spacecraft inside the lunar orbit on November 8, And with that, India became the fourth country in the world to hoist its national flag on lunar surface.

What happened to Chandrayaan-1? After almost a year of struggling with technical issues and an eventual contact failure on August 29, , the Indian Space Research Organisation officially declared the Chandrayaan-1 mission over.

The spacecraft operated for less than two years: days as opposed to two years. However, the Chandrayaan-1 was successful in achieving at least 95 per cent of its objectives. One of its biggest discovery was to find traces of water on the Moon, which was in itself a path-breaking achievement in international space science. Besides this, the spacecraft also found water ice in the North polar region of the Moon as well as detected Magnesium, Aluminium and Silicon on its surface.

Chandrayaan-1 / Moon Impact Probe

Key Dates Launch: Oct. Scientific goals included the study of the chemical, mineralogical and photogeologic mapping of the Moon. In addition to the five Indian instruments, the spacecraft carried scientific equipment from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, and Bulgaria. Finally, the probe successfully entered lunar orbit after a burn that began at UT Nov.

Here’s what happened to Chandrayaan-1

Chandrayaan Changes made after July 15 launch abort Chandrayaan-1 was carried a range of scientific equipments, both Indian and international, to the lunar orbit. The probe collected a lot of significant data over its mission. During Chandrayaan-1, the Mini-Synthetic Aperture Radar Mini-SAR found water-ice deposits in craters on the far side of the moon which was considered as a significant finding. The Chandrayaan-2 orbiter will circle the moon and provide information about its surface. Chandrayaan-1 orbited the moon a distance of kilometres from its surface, with a mission of chemical, mineralogical and photo-geologic mapping of the lunar satellite. The Lander will soft-land on the lunar surface and unload the Rover to study and take measurements from the surface. The lander and rover on Chandrayaan-2 will touchdown at a site kilometers from the lunar South pole.
