NASA yet to locate Vikram Lander

NASA on Friday stated that they were yet to determine the “precise location” of Vikram lander. The space agency has released high-resolution images captured by its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) during its flyby of the lunar region where India’s Vikram Lander was supposed to land.

“Vikram had a hard landing and the precise location of the spacecraft in the lunar highlands has yet to be determined,” NASA said.

It may be mentioned here that the Vikram Lander attempted a soft landing on South Pole of Moon between Simpelius N and Manzinus C craters before losing communication with ISRO on 7 September.
