Vikram, named after Dr Vikram A Sarabhai, the father of the Indian Space Programme, should land on a high plain between two craters, Manzinus C and Simpelius N, which are around 70° south. Now Chandrayaan 2 has taken some awesome pictures of both Moon and Earth from space. On August 22, 2019, ISRO had released Chandrayaan 2's first image of the Moon. In its statement, the ISRO said in July that the Chandrayaan 2 spacecraft is in good health and is moving in the right direction.

The second lunar mission- Chandrayaan-2, was launched on July 22 by the most powerful rocket GSLV MkIII-M1.

The photos were snapped from more than 4,000 kilometers above the surface of the moon and were released by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Monday.

Jackson is an impact crater located in the northern hemisphere of the far side of the Moon. If this landing is successful, the 10-billion-rupee mission will allow scientists to carry out studies regarding the presence of water at the Moon's south pole. North east to this crater lies the Kirkwood crater named after the American astronomer Daniel Kirkwood, another well-formed impact crater which is approximately 68 km diameter. It is named after Prof.
