Chandrayaan 2: After Nasa shares Vikram lander’s image, Isro chief K Sivan claims ‘our own orbiter had located it’
A day after Nasa announced it had located the debris of Chandrayaan-2 lander, Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) chief K Sivan said the Indian space agency had already located it earlier.
“Our own orbiter had located Vikram Lander, we had already declared that on our website, you can go back and see,” Sivan was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Isro’s website has an entry dated September 10 that reads: “Vikram lander has been located by the orbiter of Chandrayaan-2, but no communication with it yet. All possible efforts are being made to establish communication with lander.”
