The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on Friday said it was trying to restore communication with its lunar rover and lander to determine their current status on the Moon. Unfortunately, no signals were received.

“Efforts have been made to establish contact with the Vikram lander and Pragyan rover to ascertain their condition. No signals have been received from them as of yet,” the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) wrote on social media on Friday. She added that she would continue her efforts to connect with them.

In unknown territory

The Chandrayaan-3 Vikram spacecraft reached the unexplored lunar south pole on August 23. India thus became the first country to achieve such a feat.

India already tried to get to the Moon in 2019, but the attempt failed. Now everything went smoothly, and the landing of the Chandrayaan-3 Vikram probe was hailed as one of India’s greatest scientific achievements.
