Bengaluru, Sept. 8: The Chandrayaan-2s Vikram module has been located on the Moon surface and it must have been a hard-landing, ISRO Chairman K Sivan said on Sunday.
“Yes, we have located the lander on the lunar surface.
“It must have been a hard-landing,” Sivan said.
Asked if the lander was ‘damaged’ during the ‘hard-landing,’ he said, “That we do not know.”
Sivan said efforts to establish contact with the lander were continuing.
India’s mission to soft-land on the Moon suffered a setback during the wee hours on Saturday, with Chandrayaan-2’s ‘Vikram’ module losing communication with ground stations, just 2.1 km from the lunar surface during its final descent. Agencies
