ISRO on Tuesday tweeted thanking everyone who inspired the space organisation following the Chandrayaan 2 mission. Its account on Twitter thanked people for supporting it. It said that it will continue to move ahead egged on by the hopes and dreams of Indians across the world. It also posted a picture which said, 'Thank you for inspiring us to always aim for the sky'.

ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) will simulate various scenarios to find out why Vikram Lander failed to land smoothly on the moon's surface, a retired senior ISRO official said. According to him, ISRO has to see whether any simulation prior to the launch was overlooked. The simulation will include what it had not done and what it had assumed to arrive at the probable cause of its moon lander Vikram hitting the lunar surface after veering away from its plotted path and losing communication. On September 7, the Vikram Lander made a crash landing on the Moon's south polar region and lost all communication.
In a bid to help ISRO communicate with 'Vikram Lander' which is currently on the lunar surface, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), on Friday, began sending radio signals to Vikram Lander, as revealed by Astronomer Scott Tilley. As shared by Tilley in a series of tweets, NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) has been beaming radio frequency to Vikram Lander. ISRO too is constantly trying to establish communication with Vikram through its Indian Deep Space Network (IDSN) at Byalalu near Bengaluru. Tilley has also reported about the health of Chandrayaan 2 Orbiter which is currently orbiting the moon around 100km from the surface. This is being currently monitored by Tilley's own lab.
