NASA finds crashed Vikram Lander: See image

NASA released an image taken by its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter that showed the site where India's Vikram lander crashed on the lunar surface in September 2019

Blasting off in July, emerging Asian giant India had hoped with its Chandrayaan-2 ("Moon Vehicle 2") mission to become just the fourth country after the United States, Russia and regional rival China to make a successful Moon landing, and the first on the lunar south pole.

A NASA satellite has finally found India's Vikram lander over two months after it crashlanded on Moon's surface, the U.S. space agency has said. An image of Moon with blue and green dots show the impact point of Vikram and an associated debris field. The green dots indicate debris and the blue dots show soil disturbance.

Today (Dec. 2), the team that runs the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) instrument released images taken on November 11 that show how the spacecraft has changed the surface of the moon. ".And many people have downloaded the mosaic to search for signs of Vikram". Shanmuga, a bachelor who hails from Madurai and had earlier worked for Cognizant as a programme analyst, used lunar images from Nasa's Moon's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) captured on different dates (September 17, October 14, 15 and November 11) and studied them for weeks to locate the debris of the lander. NASA's confirmation came after an Indian computer programmer and mechanical engineer named Shanmuga Subramanian contacted NASA's project after which, the American space agency confirmed the identification by comparing before and after images. Despite the loss, getting that close to the surface was an incredible achievement. This is the first time a publicly-released image has identified the lander's impact site and debris field. The LROC team scoured the surrounding area in these new mosaics and found the impact site (70.8810°S, 22.7840°E, 834 m elevation) and associated debris field. The debris, first located by Shanmuga, is about 750 metre northwest of the crash site. The three largest pieces of debris are each about 2×2 pixels and cast a one pixel shadow. Changes to the surface are subtle and are more easily seen in the ratio image presented above. Imaging experts have spotted extensive evidence of the crash, including both debris from the craft and places where the collision seems to have stirred up the moon's regolith.
