We all know that The lander of Chandrayaan 2—Vikram—has been located on the surface of the moon, Indian Space Research Organization (Isro) chief K Sivan said on Sunday.
“The orbiter has clicked a thermal image of lander. But there is no communication yet. We are trying to establish contact,” Sivan told news agency ANI.
Scientists lost contact with the the Vikram lander at 1.53am in the wee hours of Saturday,less than two minutes before it was supposed to make a soft landing on the lunar surface.
Vikram lander was trying to make history by making India the first country to “soft land” on the South Pole of the moon. Scientists believe there could be water ice on the moon’s South Pole.
