Nasa confirms that Vikram Lander had hard landing on moon

Nasa on Friday has confirmed that Vikram Lander of Chandrayaan-2 had a hard landing but the exact location of the lander is yet to be found.

Nasa’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) during its flyby of the lunar region captured high resolution images of the target of Vikram Lander.

One of the goals of Chandrayaan-2 was to attempt a soft landing.

The images were taken during the dusk and there are shadows. Nasa has confirmed that LROC will capture another set of images of the same in October during another flyby. Nasa suspects that there is a possibility of Vikram Lander hidden behind the shadow.
