Communication with the Chandrayaan 2 lander was lost seconds before it was supposed to touch down on the moon's surface, chief of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said on Saturday. India looked to create history by becoming the first nation to reach closest to the Moon's south pole but as 1:55 am came and went there were no signs that the mission had succeeded. Prime Minister Narendra Modi who was watching the landing from the mission control room was briefed by ISRO scientists and was seen leaving.
