  • Communication lost with India craft attempting to land on the moon

In a statement ISRO's Mission Control Centre provided a brief explanation of what went wrong, saying the unmanned landing module's "descent was as planned and normal performance was observed up to an altitude of 2.1 km".

Dozens of students from across the country selected by ISRO through an online quiz were at the ground station to witness the lander's descent.

That announcement came at 4:48 p.m. EDT (2048 GMT) from K. Sivan, the director of ISRO.

Bagla added that it is "a symbol that shows India is marching towards what prime minister Narendra Modi repeatedly calls his effort to make a new India".

This was echoed by many, who said that regardless of what happened, they were proud of ISRO's scientists and what the country has achieved. "These are moments to be courageous, and courageous we will be!"

Modi later later said on Twitter: "We remain hopeful and will continue working hard on our space programme". Scans recorded by the rover will be relayed to the Vikram lander and then to the mission control on Earth, where experts will plan the path it needs to take.

India's attempt to become the first nation to land a spacecraft near the Moon's unexplored south pole has apparently ended in failure.

The Prime Minister was heckled for being in Yorkshire instead of Brussels to negotiate Britain's exit from the European Union. Some 35 officers were positioned behind his lectern for at least 20 minutes before the speech at West Yorkshire .

India was aiming to join the United States, Soviet Union/Russia and China as the only nations to have soft-landed on the moon.

Pragyan will leave imprints of the National Emblem and the ISRO symbol on the Moon's surface.

Pragyan's mission will begin once it emerges from the Vikram lander between 5:30 am and 6:30 am, hours after it has successfully set itself down on the lunar surface.

The mission's lander is named for Vikram Sarabhai, considered the father of India's space agency and an important figure in the development modern science, physical research and atomic energy.

Long, tense minutes stretched out inside the mission control center for the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), which designed the Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft. This region is known to contain frozen water, an element crucial to organic life that NASA says is also used in cooling equipment and needed for production of rocket fuel for missions farther into the solar system.

In any event, the Chandrayaan 2 Orbiter remains in orbit around the Moon and is expected to carry out experimental observations for the mission regardless of the Lander's fate. "It cost less than Dollars 150 million, cheaper than the budget to make the 2014 Hollywood film "Interstellar", the daily reported".
