Chandrayaan-3 lander module Vikram established communication with Chandrayaan-2 orbiter: ISRO

In a significant development, two-way communication is established between Chandrayaan 2 orbiter and Chandrayaan 3 lander module Vikram. This means that the Mission Operations Complex at ISRO Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network in Bengaluru has now an additional channel of communication with the Lander Vikram that is scheduled to land near the south pole of the Moon on the 23rd of August at 6.04 pm.

A tweet by ISRO says, “Welcome, buddy! Chandrayaan 2 orbiter formally welcomed Chandrayaan 3 Lander Module”.  Chandrayaan 2 orbiter was launched into space in July of 2019 and is still going around the moon. ISRO has announced that the live telecast of the landing event will begin on DD National and other social media handles at 5.20 pm on the 23rd of August.
