India's lunar mission suffered a setback in the early hours of Saturday when ISRO lost contact with the lander Vikram just two kilometers before the lunar surface. With this, the future of Chandrayaan-2 mission costing Rs 978 crore has been shrouded in darkness. Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) President K.K. Sivan announced the breakdown of the contact, stating that the performance of the lander up to 2.1 km before the lunar surface was in line with the plan. He said that he lost contact thereafter.
