Indian amateur astronomer discovers Chandrayaan 2 Vikram moon lander crash site | DW News

  • Published on Dec 4, 2019
  • Nearly three months ago, India's ambitious attempt at making space history took a blow when its ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) scientists lost communication with the Chandrayaan 2 spacecraft's Vikram moon lander moments before it was supposed to touch down on the Moon. After a months-long search, the US space agency NASA now says it's located the crash site, thanks to an amateur astronomer from India.

    Its sad that the ISRO had to to lie like that....I believe some major replacements on the executive committee are in order, especially the ones who decided to to tell a lie about "The lander is lying on its side" BS.

    What the world is missing is, if ISRO had tried to land the chandrayan space craft at the so called regular spot which is visible to us earthlings, we could have easily achieved it as USA, CHINA, USSR did earlier. But India wanted to land their spacecraft at the dark side of the moon, which no body have ever done, so India will be the 1st and we are going to monopolise that location.
