NASA’s Vikram Lander debris found, photo released by NASA


The US space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has made a big disclosure about Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram Lander. NASA has tweeted that its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has found Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram Lander on the lunar surface.

According to NASA’s claim, the debris of Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram Lander was found 750 meters away from its crash site. The three largest pieces of debris are 2 × 2 pixels. NASA released a photo of the Vikram lander’s impact site at around 1:30 pm and reported that its orbiter had found three pieces of the Vikram lander.

According to NASA, the photograph of Vikram Lander has been taken from a distance of one kilometer. Soil impact is also seen in this picture, the picture can be clearly seen that where the Vikram lander fell on the surface of the moon, there is also a soil disturbance.

Explain that Indian Space Agency ISRO has contacted NASA and sought information about Vikram Lander’s impact site. According to the information, NASA will submit a complete report to ISRO in which more information related to Vikram Lander will be available.

Earlier, the US space agency NASA had hoped to give information about Vikram, as its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) was going to pass over the same location where the Indian lander Vikram was expected to fall.

The US space agency had earlier said that its LRO passed through Vikram’s landing site on September 17 and found high-resolution photos of the area.

Before that, the team of NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) could not get the position or picture of the lander. During that time NASA had said, “When our orbiter passed through the landing area, there was blur and hence most of the shadow was hidden in the shadow. It is possible that Vikram Lander is hiding in the shadows. When the LRO passes there in October, the light will be favorable there and once again an attempt will be made to take the position or picture of the lander.
