Chandrayaan 2: Vikram Lander’s debris found on lunar surface, NASA released photo to Indian engineer.
Shanmuga “Shan” Subramanian, Indian Engineer rocks with his research on Vikram Lander. Appreciated by NASA. Let’s aspread the talent of Indian Engineer.
The first person to come up with a positive identification was Shanmuga “Shan” Subramanian, a 33-year-old IT professional from Chennai, who told AFP that NASA’s inability to find the lander on its own had sparked his interest.
NASA has shared a picture of India’s ambitious Chandrayaan-2, Vikram Lander, claiming to have found debris on the moon. Vikram Lander’s Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) attempt to make a soft landing on the south pole of the moon on September 7 failed and the lander lost contact with ISRO a few minutes before the landing. NASA has taken a photo from its ‘Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter’ (LRO) showing the spacecraft-affected site and the location where the debris may have been.
Parts of the lander are scattered for several kilometers at about two dozen locations. NASA said in a statement that it shared a photograph of the site on September 26 and appealed to people to identify the wreck of the lander in that photo. NASA said Shanmuga Subramanian approached the LRO project and identified the first piece about 750 meters northwest of the main crash site.
NASA said, “After receiving this information, the LROC team confirmed the earlier and later photos found. When the earlier photographs were received, the affected site was not easily identified due to poor light. NASA said that after this, two photographs were obtained on 14 -15 October and 11 November.
The LROC team investigated its vicinity and found the affected site (70.8810 degrees south, 22.7840 degrees east) and debris. According to NASA, pixels (0.7 m) and illumination (72 degree incidence angle) of the picture were the best in November. If this campaign of India was successful, it would become the fourth country to reach the moon after America, Russia and China.
Explain that earlier, the Central Government had informed the reasons for the hard landing on the lunar surface of Vikram Lander of Chandrayaan 2. In a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha, Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office Jitendra Singh, who looks at the Department of Space, said that the velocity reduction of Vikram Lander during the descent was more than the prescribed parameters and Because of this he had a hard landing.
He had said, “The first phase of the descent was carried out between 30 kilometers to 7.4 kilometers from the lunar surface. During this time the velocity was reduced from 1,683 meters per second to 146 meters per second. After this, the second phase of the descent was The reduction in velocity was higher than the designed value. The initial phase of the second phase was different from the designed parameters, due to which the design parameters were different. Had hard landing of rum. “
