NASA released pictures of Vikram lander landing site

NASA has made a big disclosure about Vikram Lander of Chandrayaan-2. US space agency NASA on Friday released photos of Chandrayaan-2’s Vikram Lander’s landing site, stating that Vikram Lander’s hard landing occurred on the lunar surface. NASA has released photographs captured from its orbiter when its lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), orbiting the Moon, passed over the landing site of Vikram Lander. NASA has also released pictures of the place where Vikram was about to land at South Pole. However, we don’t know where Vikram fell.

NASA said that Vikram Lander had undergone a hard landing. We don’t know the exact location of Vikram Lander’s landing on the lunar surface. Significantly, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) lost contact with Vikram Lander of Chandrayaan-2. It is the country’s second lunar mission, minutes before landing on the lunar surface on 7 September.

NASA tweeted from its official Twitter account, ‘NASA’s hard landing on the lunar surface is clear. It is not yet certain at which location the spacecraft landed. It took photos from a distance of 150 km from the center. In October, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter will try again.’

The effort of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to make a soft landing on the lunar surface on September 7 of the Vikram lander module of Chandrayaan-2 was not completed as per the planned plan. The lander lost contact with the ground centers at the last moment.

NASA will now try to find and capture the location of Vikram Lander. With the camera of its Lunar Reconessa Orbiter (LRO) on October 14, after the darkness was cut off from the moon’s south pole. Let us know that earlier the agency has made such efforts, but it did not succeed.
