ISRO had lost contact with “Vikram” lander , one of three components of the Chandrayaan 2 spacecraft, on Saturday morning while the lander was attempting a historic soft landing near the south pole of the moon. The lander stopped transmitting messages just 2.1 kilometres from the moon’s surface but it was a 95% Success that Isro achieved
We have located the lander on the Lunar surface. It must have been a hard-landing, Mr Sivan said, adding that it was unclear at this stage if the lander had been damaged.
And he also said that the lunar orbiter had taken a thermal image of the Vikram lander but there is no communication between the lander but still we are trying and it will be communicated soon.
