NEW DELHI, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- The deadline to contact India's second Moon mission, Chandrayaan-2's Lander Vikram, which had a 14-day mission life will end on Saturday even as the country is making last efforts to revive the contact.

Lander Vikram had lost communication with the ground station at an altitude of 2.1 km from the lunar surface on Sept. 7.

The lander's mission life set to end on Saturday and the "lunar night" is also falling on Saturday.

During the "lunar night," the lander would not get any sunlight and would not generate power for its working.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said on Thursday that a national level committee consisting of academicians and ISRO experts is analyzing the cause of communication loss with the lander.

It said that all payloads of orbiter are powered, the initial trials for orbiter payloads are completed successfully, the performance of all orbiter payloads is satisfactory and orbiter continues to perform scheduled science experiments to complete satisfaction.
