It's suspected Vikram impacted the lunar surface and is non-operational but hasn't broken apart.

During the descent to the lunar surface on September 7, ISRO lost communications with the Vikram lander and the space agency has been trying to establish contact with the lander for the past ten days.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will capture images of Indian lunar lander, Vikram, today.

The lander was, however, spotted on the surface of the Moon on September 8, by the Chandrayaan 2 orbiter, which is now circling the Moon. The exact time of NASA's orbiter flyby is unknown yet.

Pitt peppered astronaut Nick Hague with dozens of questions about what life was like in space from NASA's Mission Control Center in Houston, Texas. According to ISRO, Vikram has been spotted on the surface of the moon by India's Chandrayaan 2 orbiter, which is now circling the moon.

The LRO had managed to collect data during Vikram's descent in the early hours of September 7, observing that the lander caused changes to the Moon's atmosphere due to the rocket effluent released.

Chandrayaan-2's Vikram Lander was 2.1 kilometers away from the moon's surface when it lost contact with ISRO on September 7.

This mission objective is the same as Chandrayaan-2.

Chandrayaan 1 had confirmed the presence of iced water on the Moon. As shared by Tilley in a series of tweets, NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) has been beaming radio frequency to Vikram Lander. The lander's mission life - and that of the six-wheeled rover Pragyaan that Vikram carries - was just one lunar day, which corresponds to 14 Earth days.

It had also noted that the precise launch and mission management has ensured a long life of nearly 7 years instead of the planned one year for the orbiter.

Chandrayaan-2 was India's first attempt at landing a spacecraft on the moon.
