NASA on Saturday commended ISRO’s attempt to place ‘Vikram’ lander of Chandrayaan 2 mission on the moon’s south pole and said it was inspired with the Indian space agency’s journey, reported Economic Times.

The US space agency also said that “it looks forward to working with ISRO to explore the solar system together.”

“Space is hard. We commend ISRO’s attempt to land their #Chandrayaan2 mission on the Moon’s South Pole. You have inspired us with your journey and we look forward to future opportunities to explore our solar system together,” NASA said in a tweet.

According to the reports from ISRO, the communication with Vikram lander was lost in the wee hours of Saturday, moments before its planned landing on the south pole region of the moon. ISRO chairman K Sivan announced that communication with the lander was lost at 2.1 km from the lunar surface.
