India Ends Chandrayaan-1 Orbiter’s Mission After Losing Contact August 31, 2009

Posted by Nick Azer in Chandrayaan, Chandrayaan-1, Indian Space Research Organization.

India’s ISRO has decided to end its Chandrayaan-1 orbiter mission after losing contact 2 days ago.

Launched in October last year, this marks a somewhat premature end to the mission, but not before collecting a significant amount of data.

I’ll have a full retrospective up in a few days, as eyes turn to India’s next effort, an unmanned rover (in collaboration with Russia) called simply Chandrayaan-2
