CHANDRAYAAN 2: National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) is sending radio signals to Vikram Lander and has also assured that apart from the radio signals, they will also be sharing the images from its own Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter to ISRO.

NASA’s Deep Space Network is beaming the radio signals to Vikram Lander. The move will help the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)  to establish communication with Chandrayaan 2’s moon lander Vikram.

According to astronomer Scott Tilley, who found American weather satellite IMAGE in 2018 that was believed to be lost, said that his station will continue to monitor for signals from Vikram Lander as long as NASA’s Deep  Space Network continues to search for it.

 

The US space agency’s DSN operator Richard Stephenson also confirmed on Twitter that the network is helping secure a communication link with the lander.

 

Assistant professor of physics at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, Dr. Nirupam Roy said,

ISRO has already located the lander using the images taken by the orbiter, but in order to establish communication, the lander has to be in a working condition and has to be functioning properly in two ways. Firstly, the solar panel for power and secondly, the antennae for communication. As informed and from what I know, the battery backup of the Vikram lander can at best last only for 14 Earth days. If that is the case then all hope of establishing communication will end as the lunar night begins over the south polar region.

Shubrat is currently pursuing his studies and he loves writing articles in his free time. He is also learning the Japanese language for a while now because he has always been passionate about foreign languages.

Server Down: Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp users facing global outage

Published

on

It’s not just you: Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are all currently down for users around the world. We’re seeing error messages on all three services across iOS applications as well as on the web. Users are being greeted with error messages such as: “Sorry, something went wrong,” “5xx Server Error,” and more.

The outage is affecting every Facebook-owned platform, according to data on Downdetector and Twitter. This includes Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger. The outages appear to have started around 9:00 pm IST and all of those services remain inaccessible.

The outages quickly started trending on Twitter as users flocked to the competing social network to check to see if other users were affected by the downtime. Humorously, the hashtag “#DeleteFacebook” is also trending on Twitter as the company battles continued pushback against the effects its platforms have on younger users.

While some Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp outages only affect certain geographic regions, the services are down worldwide today. This includes the United States, the UK, Brazil, Kuwait, and more.

The outage is also affecting platforms and services that use Facebook login. Niantic, the creator of Pokémon GO, says that it is “looking into reports of errors associated with Facebook login, and will update here once we have more information.”

Facebook has not yet publicly commented on the ongoing outages affecting all of its services. We’ll be sure to update this story as we learn more. The issue appears to be related to some sort of DNS problem affecting Facebook servers.
