Journey to the Moon: ISRO loses touch with Chandrayaan 2 lander


Journey to the Moon: ISRO loses touch with Chandrayaan 2 lander

India has lost communication with a lander it sent to the southern pole of Moon, dealing a blow to its ambitious space mission that aimed to establish the country’s reputation as a scientific power. 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.
