Vikram, lunar lander of chandrayaan 2 is located at the surface of the Moon and team on ground station is working to develop contact, Chief ISRO K Sivan today told the news agency ANI. Saturday morning the ISRO lost contact with Vikram while the lander was trying to land close the south pole of the moon.
They discovered Vikram's position on a lunar surface and Orbiter clicked a thermal image of Vikram. However, there is still no communication and they are trying to contact it and will be communicated soon.
Update: Now, orbiter captured photos of lunar lander vikram and according to ISRO, it is lying on the south pole of the moon close to its destination but they are still not able to communicate with it. One of a scientist is guessing that maybe the communication device got damaged but vikram is still intact and not fully damaged.
On 22 July, Chandrayaan 2, from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh, started its journey. It has been anticipated that the Rs. 1,000-crore mission, which cost only 1/20th to the Avengers: Endgame Hollywood blockbuster, will help India make Space history and make the country the fourth to accomplish the task after the United States, Russia and China.
The mission was scheduled to start a week earlier, but the launch was aborted less than an hour due to a technical problem.
