What Will Happen When Humans Start Living On Moon? Communication from Chandrayaan 2’s ‘Vikram’ lander to ground station was lost during its powered descent to the Lunar surface in the early hours of Saturday and data is being analysed. "Vikram lander descent was as planned and normal performance was observed up to an altitude of 2.1 km. Subsequently, the communications from lander to ground station was lost," ISRO Chairman K Sivan said. Morale boosting messages poured in from various quarters for ISRO as several leaders asked the space agency not to get disheartened.
