India locates missing Moon lander

Scientists monitor as Vikram Lander begins its descent on the south pole of the moon at ISRO office in Bengaluru on Saturday

Scores of fake Twitter accounts of Sivan had emerged on September 7-8, shortly after his popularity peaked due to the Chandrayaan 2 mission.

The mission life of the lander and rover is one Lunar day, which is equal to 14 earth days. "Vikram Lander has been located by the orbiter of #Chandrayaan2, but no communication with it yet".

Chandrayaan 2 will continue with its orbiter in orbit around the Moon, and its suite of eight instruments.

Sources said an ISRO team is trying to see if they can reorient the antennas of the lander in such a way that communication can be restored.

Space scientist Sandip Chakraborty said bringing out of the rover "Pragyan" from the lander and making it functional is crucial for the moon mission. "Things are bleak", the official said.

Iran President Rouhani rules out any bilateral talks with US
President Barack Obama, curbed Iran's nuclear work in exchange for the lifting of most worldwide sanctions in 2016. Tehran has announced a decision to further scale down its commitments to the landmark 2015 nuclear deal.

Devotees took part in the prayers so that contact could be established with the lander and the orbiter. "The official account of ISRO on all social media platforms are as follows: https://www.twitter.com/isro and https://www.facebook.com/ISRO, Youtube ISRO Official, it said".

Is the Vikram Lander intact? There are two cameras for imaging, two payloads that would study x-rays from the sun and the lunar regolith, two that would study the thin lunar exosphere using radio signals, one that would study water ice and one that would study the thickness of lunar soil. Minutes before its scheduled soft-landing, the communication with Vikram Lander was lost.

In 2014, India became only the fourth nation to put a satellite into orbit around the Red Planet, and in 2017 India's space agency launched 104 satellites in a single mission.

"After communication with the lander was lost, we made a decision to offer special prayers seeking Moon God's intervention to regain contact with the lander and it was held on Monday", V Kannan, temple manager told PTI. Also, India would have been the first country to reach close to the lunar South Pole.
