Chandrayaan-2 - Vikram lander found on moon surface - says ISRO-chief

In a major development, ISRO Chief and Chandrayaan-2 head honcho K Sivan said on Sunday that the space organization has found Vikram lander on the surface of the moon, and that orbiter clicked its thermal image.
Vikram was supposed to smoothly land on the lunar surface but ISRO lost contact with it.
Sivan said they are trying to establish communication.
Here's more.

We are trying to establish contact: Sivan

Details Vikram lost communication after successful descent
After taking off in July, Vikram maneuvered for weeks and was all set to land on moon's southern pole.
On Saturday, its descent started around 1:37 am, and the initial phases were perfect.
However, at an altitude of 2.1 km, the lander lost contact with ISRO, handing over a major setback to the scientists who worked for years on the historic mission.

Orbiter Though Vikram went incommunicado, orbiter was safe and healthy
The debacle broke hearts of billions of Indians, but all was not lost. In what served as a silver lining, it was reported that the orbiter, which ferried Vikram, and rover Pragyan both were healthy and safe.
The orbiter weighing 2,379kg has a lifespan of seven and a half years, as opposed to only one year, as reported earlier.

It will conduct remote-sensing observations.
Earlier, Sivan expressed confidence that orbiter might find Vikram
"The orbiter will have a lifespan of over seven and a half years, not just one year, as there is a lot of fuel left. And there is a possibility of finding Vikram lander from sophisticated instruments onboard the orbiter," Sivan said on Saturday.
