Chandrayaan 2: Vikram Lander’s Position found, ISRO trying to establish communication

On 7 September, in the early hours, ISRO lost communication with the Vikram lander when it was 2.1 km from the moon’s surface. By this point in the mission, the lander had completed the first 'rough braking' part of its descent. Everyone was highly disheartened by this incident.

On Saturday, after a disappointing disconnect from the Vikram Lander early, the Indian space agency has been able to locate the exact position of the Lander on the Moon's surface. The position of the lander was identified with the help of thermal images of Vikram sent in by the Orbiter. However, ISRO is yet to establish any communication with the lander.

"We've found the location of Vikram Lander on lunar surface & orbiter has clicked a thermal image of the lander. But there is no communication yet. We are trying to have contact. It will be communicated soon," the ISRO chief K Sivan said according to ANI.
