The Indian Space Research Organisation is continuing its efforts to reconnect with lunar lander Vikram. The 1.4-tonne lander has been lying silent on the moon’s surface since the early hours of September 7. ISRO's Chandrayaan-2 mission involved an orbiter, lander (Vikram) and rover (Pragyan). The Vikram module was to make a historic first soft landing near the moon’s south pole at 1.55 a.m. on September 7. Vikram lost its earth link when it was 2.1 km and about 3 minutes from touchdown.
