Chandrayaan-2: NASA says record lander landed hard, pictures revealed

The US space agency NASA says that the Chandran-2 record lander made a hard landing on the surface of the moon. Along with this, contact with him was broken.
NASA has said that its team is trying to contact Chandrayan-2, but has not been successful yet.
A US space agency has said that a Chandrayaan-2 lander attempted to land on September 7 but a soft landing could not take place.
NASA has released pictures of Vikander Lander's landing site, but the agency has not been able to locate Vikram Lander.
These photos were taken by NASA's orbiter, where the record lander could not be found because it is currently dark.
NASA says that when the light goes up in October, the orbiter will once again send pictures of Vikram Lander's location.

What happened on September 7?

On September 7, Chandrayaan-2's contact with record lander broke shortly before landing on the Moon.
Chairman of ISRO. Sivan said after the mission, "The record lander was going as planned and everything was normal until 2.1 kilometers away from the surface."
"However, contact with him was later lost. Data is being reviewed."
'Vikram' was to land on the moon between 1:30 pm and 2:30 pm on September 7.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived at the ISRO headquarters in Bengaluru to witness the achievement of an Indian astronaut and to boost his enthusiasm.
Everything was going well and the scientists were keeping an eye on the lander record every moment of approaching the surface.
However, at the funerals, the center of ISRO became a tense situation, and a line of worry began to appear on the faces of the scientists.
After some time, the chairman of ISRO came to the Prime Minister and informed him about the matter.
After that, the chairman of ISRO informed the country that contact with Chandrayaan-2's Vikram Lander had been broken.
No record location information
These pictures were taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC). These cameras passed over the landing site on September 17th.
These pictures were taken 150 km from the center. NASA has said that the record lander's location could not be found.
NASA said on its website that it was dark when the pictures were taken, it is likely that the record lander did not appear in the shadows.
NASA has said that the exact location of the spacecraft landed at this time is unclear.
This was India's first attempt to make a soft landing on the surface of the moon but it did not succeed.
Vikram Lander tried to land on a flat surface but could not do as expected and his contact with ISRO was broken.
