India loses contact with its Moon lander in final moments to descent

India’s space agency lost contact with its Vikram lunar lander during its final moments of landing on the Moon’s south pole on Saturday. A successful landing achieved by India’s $ 140 million Chandrayaan-2 mission would have made India the 4th country to land on the Moon.
