Chandrayaan-2 landing live updates: Communication from Vikram lost, says Sivan

Life is full of ups and downs – Modi to scientists

While the lander module does appear to have crashed, Modi urges scientists not to lose hope.

What we know for sure so far

“Vikram lander’s descent was planned and decsent was normal till 2.1 km. After this, communication link between the lander and ground station was lost. ISRO is currently analysing the data,” announced the ISRO chairman.

We saw the speed of descent was a little unexpected, as it seemed to speed up as it lost altitude. That’s the deviation we saw on the graph.
