India's moon mission locates landing craft, no communication yetIndia has located the spacecraft it was trying to land on the moon but has not been able to establish communication with it yet, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said on Tuesday. The lander was making a “soft” or controlled landing near the South Pole of the moon on Saturday when it lost contact with ground control in the final stage of the descent. Space experts said the lander may have come down faster than planned and crash-landed on the moon, in a setback for India’s space programme that has captivated millions of countrymen.
