Vikram lander located on Lunar surface, says ISRO chief

“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 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.
