Indian amateur astronomer discovers Chandrayaan 2 Vikram moon lander crash site

Nearly three months ago, India’s ambitious attempt at making space history took a blow when its ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) scientists lost communication with the Chandrayaan 2 spacecraft’s Vikram moon lander moments before it was supposed to touch down on the Moon.

After a months-long search, the US space agency NASA now says it’s located the crash site, thanks to an amateur astronomer from India.
