Chandrayaan-2 update: Moon lander Vikram located but no communication with it yet


Chennai, Sep 10 (IANS) The Indian space agency — ISRO on Tuesday reiterated that its moon lander Vikram has been located by the Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter.

“#VikramLander has been located by the orbiter of #Chandrayaan2, but no communication with it yet,” the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) tweeted.

“All possible efforts are being made to establish communication with lander,” ISRO said.

The ISRO did not, however, say in what condition the lander is on the lunar surface.

The space agency continues to remain silent as to the proximate cause for the moon lander tumbling and deviating from its original flight path on September 7 early morning.
