Bonus pic: Due to the "roll on wheels" tow back to the OPF the orbiters didn't require the OTS (Orbiter Transporter System) that transports them to the VAB for mating. Note, this OTS was modified, got a lick of white paint and now works for SpaceX, transporting Falcon boosters!

Following safing operations on the SLF, Atlantis was escorted back to her OPF (Orbiter Processing Facility) by the fun fleet of purge trucks and support vehicles. A slow march that usually earned her a round of applause from her engineers once "back in the barn". 😍👍

The orbiter is working well and is set to complete #Chandrayaan  -1’s unfinished scientific work and confirm its findings about presence of #water  and minerals.

#Chandrayaan2 Orbiter continues to perform scheduled science experiments to complete satisfaction. More details on Meanwhile, the National committee of academicians and ISRO experts is analysing the cause of communication loss with #VikramLander 

#VikramLander has been located by the orbiter of #Chandrayaan2 , but no communication with it yet. All possible efforts are being made to establish communication with lander. #ISRO 

Just a reminder to folks that on its way to putting this lander down, India did successfully put its second spacecraft in orbit at the Moon. Chandrayaan-2 orbiter will be up there doing science for a year. Lander would only have lasted 2 weeks.

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chief, K Sivan to ANI:We've found the location of #Vikram Lander on lunar surface&orbiter has clicked a thermal image of Lander. But there is no communication yet. We are trying to have contact. It will be communicated soon. #Chandrayaan2

Indian at heart, Indian in spirit! What would make every Indian overjoyed is the fact that #Chandrayaan2  is a fully indigenous mission. It will have an Orbiter for remote sensing the Moon and also a Lander-Rover module for analysis of lunar surface.

#ISROMissions  We are ready for one of the most exciting missions, #Chandrayaan2 . Launch window between July 9-16 & likely Moon-landing on Sept 6, 2019. #GSLVMKIII  will carry 3 modules of this #lunarmission  - Orbiter, Lander (Vikram), Rover (Pragyan). More updates soon.
