NASA unable to locate Vikram Lander, releases images of Chandrayaan-2 landing site

Vikram had a "hard landing", NASA said on Friday, as it released high-resolution images captured by its reconnaissance orbiter of the Moon's unchartered south pole where the Chandrayaan 2 lander attempted to soft-land during the ambitious mission three weeks ago. The module had attempted a soft landing on a small patch of lunar highland smooth plains between Simpelius N and Manzinus C craters before losing communication with ISRO on September 7. The images were taken by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, however, owing to dusk the lander could not be located.
