Nasa’s deep-space antennas sending hello messages to ‘motionless’ Vikram news

Besides Indian Space Research Organisation’s (Isro’s) last-ditch effort to establish a communication link with Vikram lander that is lying motionless on the lunar surface after a “hard-landing” on September 7 

, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa

) has also sent hello messages to the Indian lander on Moon in order to connect with it.

Through its deep space network ground stations, Nasa’s Jet Propulsion labortary had beamed a radio frequency to Vikram in order to establish a contact with the lander. A source in Nasa told TOI, “Yes, NASA/JPL is trying to contact Vikram through its deep space network (DSN) as contractually agreed with Isro.”

The hope of revival of Vikram is getting slim by the day as even 14 Earth days, when the lander will remain exposed to Sun’s rays, will also get over on September 20-21 and thereafter there would be no hope to energise its solar panel.
Read also: Isro has located lander Vikram and is trying to make contact. But how?

Another astronomer Scott Tilley also confirmed that Nasa’s DSN station in California had beamed the radio frequency to the lander. Tilley, who earned fame for spotting a Nasa spy satellite IMAGE that got lost in 2005, tweeted, “DSN 24 beams 12KW of RF at the Moon in hopes of stimulating Chandrayaan2’s Vikramlander into communicating with home. Here’s a eerie recording of the searcher’s signal reflected off the Moon and back to Earth via EME (Earth Moon Earth) on 2103.7MHz (He attached the recording of the RF signal with his tweet).”

On sending a signal to the lander, Moon acts as a radio reflector and sends back a small portion of that signal that can be detected on Earth after the 8,00,000-km round trip.

To a TOI query, Tilley replied, “DSN 24 has been sending a signal on Vikram Lander’s uplink frequency for the last two days now. I believe other DSN stations have done the same too.”

Nasa’s JPL has DSN ground station in three places —Goldstone, South California (US), Madrid (Spain) and Canberra (Australia). The three stations are located 120 degrees apart on Earth with an aim to ensure that any satellite in deep space is able to communicate with at least one station at all times. Each site contains a minimum of four large antennas – ranging from 26 metre up to 70 metre in diameter – and is capable of providing continuous radio communications with several spacecraft at the same time.

DSN supports Nasa and non-NASA missions that explore the furthest points of our solar system. In fact, Isro had taken the help of NSA’s DSN to track the journey of Chandrayaan-2

integrated module while it was on its way to Moon from Earth’s elliptical orbit.

Why is Nasa showing interest in India’s Chandrayaan-2 mission?

Nasa has been showing a lot of interest in India’s moon mission because of several reasons. First, its “passive payload” laser reflector array was installed on Vikram lander that was meant to track the lander’s exact spot and also calculate the exact distance between Earth and Moon. The distance calculations would have helped Nasa plan its future moon missions better. But after the Vikram had “hard-landed” on Moon, the fate of the Nasa payload, consisting of array of mirrors, is unknown.

Second, Nasa is expecting a lot of significant data from the Chandrayaan-2’s orbiter, which is loaded with eight advanced payloads. It is keenly awaiting for 3D mapping and sharp images of the south pole region of Moon. This is because Nasa has plans to send a manned mission to the south pole by 2024 under its Artemis programme and it wants to enrich its knowledge about that region to plan its mission better.

With China planning to set up a research hub in the south pole of Moon after two or three more lander missions to Moon, the US doesn’t want to stay behind. US President Donald Trump wants Nasa to use the services of private space companies like Elon Musk’s SpaceX

 and Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin to make the manned mission to Moon a reality again, over 50 years after the famous Apollo-11 mission that helped the US make history by becoming the first country in the world to land on Moon.

Nasa’s current budget is $21.5 billion, and the Trump administration is seeking another $1.6 billion for the current fiscal year to fund its return to Moon.

Robert Vadra may hamper probe if allowed to travel to Spain, ED tells court news

The Enforcement Directorate told a Delhi court on Thursday that Robert Vadra

, the son-in-law of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, may hamper the probe if allowed to travel to Spain and other European countries.

The agency made the submissions before Special judge Arvind Kumar while opposing Vadra’s application seeking to travel abroad from September 21 to October 8 for business purposes.

Vadra is facing probe under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The agency told the court that there were likelihood that if allowed to go, the accused may try to influence the witnesses and destroy the evidence in the case.

The application is an attempt to temper the evidence and meet the co-accused, it said.

The ED’s submission was, however, opposed by Vadra’s counsel and senior advocate K T S Tulsi, who said that the agency’s allegations were unfounded and that the accused will return.

The court will pronounce order on Vadra’s plea on Friday.

Vadra had on September 9 moved court seeking permission to travel abroad.

Vadra is facing allegations of money laundering related to purchase of a property in London at 12, Bryanston Square, worth 1.9 million pounds.

The court had in June allowed Vadra to travel to the US and Netherlands for six weeks on account of health reasons.

It, however, had not allowed Vadra to go to the United Kingdom.

The ED had expressed apprehension that the accused may destroy the evidence if allowed to go to the UK.

Vadra was directed on April 1 not to leave the country without prior permission by the local court here which had granted him conditional anticipatory bail.
