Nasa's LRO camera spots Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram's debris on Moon surface
BENGALURU: Analysis of the images taken by Nasa's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) Camera, released early on December 3 (IST), for the first time, has indicated the debris of Vikram , the Chandrayaan-2 lander that hard-landed on Moon on September 7.
In a statement, Nasa said: "Vikram lander found." An image of Moon with blue and green dots show the impact point of Vikram and an associated debris field.
"Green dots indicate spacecraft debris (confirmed or likely). Blue dots locate disturbed soil, likely where small bits of the spacecraft churned up the regolith. "S" indicates debris identified by Shanmuga Subrnian," the statement read (see image).

i like your maths..lol...are you one of the paid IT cell here..lol.. now you know the difference between the indian thinking and the westerners thinking..it is more prudent and strong to accept defeat than say stupid things like 99 or 98 or 97 success.accept and move forwards and learn from past mistake so you are successful the next time than be arrogant.

A Chennai techie, Shanmuga Subrnian, used lunar images from Nasa's Moon's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and studied them to locate the debris of the lander
Better read this news and then comment. We are proud Indians and NASA has 38% Indian techies

Dear isro we love you. Please stay away from po iticians and babaji etc type of people. These baba etc anyway never believe in science no matter what you do. Call them after mission success like you did in the past.

We should also take time to analyze our mistakes, so we can avoid them later. NASA learned that way.

all this while our scientist were trying to contact the debris? there was also a report by ISRO that it is lying on moon in a tilted position. quite sad that ISRO faked news

Good! Thanks NASA for locating it.
I assume by now ISRO has found out the root cause of crash landing and planning to fix in next mission. All the best for chandrayaan 3.

by publishing this message, now it is confirmed that isro has sent the spaceship to moon successfully. though it is unfortunately crashed. we are proud Indian agency could achieve it indigenously. it will also stop those people who have been making doubt and mocking on isro.
well done isro. continue your work in this field. we wish for all the success.

landed on the moon twice in 2 tries without much fanfare. It shows how far India is behind in technology.
