1:15 am
a secondary landing site they're hoping to figure that out in the next few hours and days but it was you know definitely really tense in india's mission control and a big disappointment after a mission that's gone really really well over the last month to reach the moon there are folks still listening for signals but not having any signal from the spacecraft nasa deep space network with antennas around the world also lost contact they weren't hearing anything from the spacecraft that's not the best of signs it is possible that the spacecraft might have been able to land itself busy and just lost contact you know they have their orbiter in orbit around the moon nasa has an orbiter as well you can be sure that they'll be looking for that but not hearing from the spacecraft during that critical period isn't a great sign india has resolved to keep at it to to keep listening and then to keep shooting for the moon and they do have plans for a 3rd mission later on other calls being made in the netherlands to ban an
