Chandrayaan 2 LIVE: Learnings from today will make us better, says PM
After losing communication with the lander last night, PM Modi tweeted that he will address the nation at 8 am today.
ISRO's plan to soft land Chandrayaan-2's Vikram module on the Lunar surface did not go as per script in the early hours of Saturday, with the lander losing communication with ground stations during its final descent.Earlier, the PM had tweeted, "India is proud of our scientists! They’ve given their best and have always made India proud. These are moments to be courageous, and courageous we will be! Chairman @isro gave updates on Chandrayaan-2. We remain hopeful and will continue working hard on our space programme."
Vikram, the lander of the mission called Chandrayaan 2, went silent when it was 2.1 km away from the lunar surface, said K Sivan, chairman of Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro). "Subsequently the communication from lander to ground station was lost. The data is being analysed," said Sivan.
Communication was lost a few minutes before the scheduled landing at 1.55 am.
