On October 14, NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) flew over the region where Vikram was supposed to land for the second time.
The team behind the orbiter has not yet released an update, but the lighting in the region is believed to be favorable, which means there's a good chance that we might get the location and photos of Vikram this time around.
However, chances of Vikram's survival unlikely
The photographic data captured and released by LRO's camera will help ISRO understand what might have happened to Vikram after losing its way while hard-landing at a site not so far from the targeted lost.
It could show us the condition of the Lander, which previous reports had indicated may have tripped on its side but is still in one piece.
No hope for contact now
Having said that, it's important to note that there's little to no hope of establishing contact with Vikram.
The Lander was not designed to bear the cold temperatures of lunar nights and is most probably dead by now.
Meanwhile, the Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter is healthy and capturing a range of data while circling the Moon. It is expected to operate for the next 6-7 years.
