Chandrayaan-2 : India's historic moonshot appears to end in failure

India's attempt to become the first nation to land a spacecraft near the Moon's unexplored South Pole has apparently ended in failure.

Officials said that the Chandrayaan-2 approached the Moon as normal until an error occurred about 2.1km from the surface.

India's Space Research Organization said it lost contact seconds before the ship was expected to land.

India would have been the fourth nation to make a soft landing on the Moon.

The country's first Moon mission - Chandrayaan-1, in 2008 - carried out the first and most detailed search for water on the lunar surface using radars.
