According to the US space agency NASA, one of its satellites found the wreckage of Indian Vikram Lander of the Chandrayaan2 spacecraft mission from the moon’s surface. The spacecraft crashed on the moon in September this year.
NASA Efforts to Find Crashed Spaceship
The space agency NASA also released a photo of the part of the moon where Chandrayaan2 Vikram Lander crashed. In an image, they have made efforts to show the impact of this place on the fall. NASA credits the discovery with the head of an Indian engineer Shanmuga Subramanian.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) had lost contact with the Vikram Lander exactly one month after launched from Earth. So, “Chandrayaan2” Mission was to land on the south pole of the moon on September 7.
Chandrayaan2 moon mission incident:
Everything was running smoothly when suddenly there was a technical failure in Vikram Lander, only 2.1 km from the moon’s surface. The spacecraft disconnected from the ground station because of technical failure.
Hence It hit a “hard landing” in a relatively ancient part of the moon, about 600 km from the south pole of the moon. That’s why, out of control and fell to the surface of the moon.
Announcing the discovery of Vikram Lander’s debris, NASA tweeted this image, which made by adding several photos. Its spacecraft took the image in September that showed Vikram Lander’s landing site. The space agency said in a statement that many people downloaded the image released by NASA.
The statement also said that NASA’s team compared the before and after images after receiving a notification from the Indian Engineer’s Subramanian regarding the location of the wreckage. They confirmed that there was the wreckage of the Indian Space Mission.
Founder of Vikram Lander
Shanmuga Subramanium who is the founder of Vikram Lander on the moon also tweet an email from the space agency congratulating them for their efforts.
He told the Indian channel NDTV that he had always been interested in space science.
The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Also Tweet and explain the facts.
