NEW DELHI (WION) — The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has lost contact with Vikram Lander of Chandrayaan-2. The mission suffered a technical glitch moments before Vikram’s scheduled landing on Moon’s surface.

Speaking about the situation, ISRO chief Dr K Sivan said everything was normal till the time Vikram lander was 2.1 km above Moon’s surface. He said the communication between Vikram Lander and the ground station was lost thereafter. “Data is being analysed. Vikram Lander’s descent went as planned and everything was normal till it was 2.1 km above the lunar surface”, Dr Sivan said.
