Isro locates lander Vikram on Moon

1. The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) has located lander Vikram on the Moon more than 24 hours after losing contact.
2. They have found the location of the Vikram lander on the lunar surface and the orbiter has clicked a thermal image of the lander.
3. Isro scientists remain hopeful and said that they would try their best to connect with the lander over the next 14 days, after which the lunar night would begin and the landing site would be covered in darkness.
4. Locating the lander would only offer clues on what happened in the last two minutes of the powered descent and where it landed.
5. The orbiter is revolving around the Moon at an altitude of 100km above the surface in a polar orbit and carries seven payloads. It is expected to collect crucial data for the mission.
