Chandrayaan-2: Vikram Lander’s location found, confirms ISRO chief K Sivan

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief K Sivan on Sunday said that the location of Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram Lander, which had lost contact with the space agency 2.1 km above the Moon’s surface, has been found.

The ISRO chief, however, added that communication with Vikram Lander was yet to be established, reported news agency ANI.

“We have found the location of Vikram Lander on lunar surface and orbiter has clicked a thermal image of Lander. But there is no communication yet. We are trying to have contact. It will be communicated soon,” said Sivan.
In an interview with state broadcaster Doordarshan, Sivan had said, “The last portion was not executed the right way, in that phase only we lost the link with the Lander, and could not establish communication subsequently. Right now the communication is lost. We will try to establish a link for the next 14 days.”
