On Tuesday, the Chandrayaan-2 lander will attempt to land on Vikram's moon and fly to the landing site of the lunar spacecraft, which has been trying to take pictures of the spacecraft since it tried to land on the lunar surface 10 years ago. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is operated by the United States Space Agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration. NASA officials have confirmed that their lunar reconnaissance orbiter will fly over the part of the moon where Vikram lies and will take photographs in hopes of determining the fate of the lander. Vikram lost contact with the Earth in the early hours of 7 September when he attempted to land near the South Pole of the Moon.
In June 2009, the lunar reconnaissance orbit entered the lunar orbit and, for the following year, focused on lunar surface exploration. As part of their exploration mission, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mapped locations on the lunar surface that would be suitable for future robots and manned missions to the Moon. After completing his one-year exploration mission, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter embarked on a two-year science mission to perform experiments and study the moon. The mission has since been extended. According to NASA, data collected by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter as part of their missions will "help the world develop a deeper understanding of the lunar environment, paving the way for a safe human return to the Moon and human exploration of our solar.
