As the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) announced that it has found its moon lander Vikram on the lunar surface on Sunday, the twitterati wasting no time in sharing words of hope and support for the organisation.

"#Vikram lander spotted on the moon. Let's see what happens next.. important data coming ahead," wrote a user.

"It's a good news. Hope ISRO will succeed in establishing communication with Lander," wrote another user.

"The lander seems to have hit the lunar surface and is in an upturned position," an official told IANS preferring anonymity.

He also said there is a possibility of the lander having broken on impact.

@GauravVprince wrote: "Proud moment for #India as #Chandrayaan2 's #VikramLander has been found, said #ISRO chief K. Sivan."

On July 22, the Rs 978-crore Chandrayaan-2 was launched into space by India's heavy-lift rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV Mk III).

Early on September 7, Vikram while on its descent to soft land on the moon's south polar region apparently lost control and crash-landed, thereby losing all communication links.
