India helps NASA find Moon Probe Debris
NASA says one of its satellites has found the debris of Indias moon rover which had crashed on the lunar surface in September. NASA has credited an Indian engineer, Shanmugan Subramanian to help locate the site of the debris. Mr. Subramanian examined the picture that NASA got and found out that the first debris was located about 750m north-west of the crash site. The rover, Chandrayaan, was supposed to land in the South Pole on September 7 but it approached the moon and lost contact. It had a hard landing about 600km from the South Pole. The mission originally was the most complex mission that Indias Space Agency had ever attempted. This is quite a great accomplishment. 

What are your thoughts?
