Bengaluru: Bringing cheer to millions of Indians across the world and the community of space sciences, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has found the exact location of the Vikram Lander on the lunar surface.

This information was relayed in an interview by ISRO Chairman K Sivan to ANI news agency.

The Chandrayaan 2 Orbiter has sent thermal image of the Vikram Lander, identifying the exact location on the Moon, confirmed ISRO chairman. However, ISRO scientists have not yet been able to establish communication with the Vikram Lander yet.

ISRO had lost contact with the space agency just 2.1 kilometres above the Moon’s surface.
