The Indian Space Research Organisation said on September seven ground stations lost communication with Vikram (with rover Praygan tucked inside it), minutes before its planned soft-landing on the Lunar surface
The site was about 600 km from the south pole in a relatively ancient terrain, according to the US space agency
On Thursday, ISRO informed that the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter continues to perform the mission to complete satisfaction while experts are still analysing the communication loss with Vikram lander
NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft has snapped a series of images during its flyby on September 17 of Vikram's attempted landing site near the Moon's uncharted south pole
The lander and rover have a mission life of one Lunar day, which is equivalent to 14 earth days
The Vikram Lander successfully separated from Chandrayaan-2 Orbiter on September 2
A vital aspect is the positioning of antennas and these have to be pointed towards either the ground station or the orbiter, he said
The organisation says it did not soft-land on the moon as planned
