Bengali Hunt Desk: Ten months after the failure of Lander Vikram's soft landing attempt on the Chandrayaan-2 rover mission, Isro's hopes were revived in a fresh NASA film. Last year, Chennai-based scientist Shanmuga Subramanian sent an email to the Indian Space Research Organization to identify Vikram's wreckage using a NASA image, claiming that the image sent by NASA in May showed Pragya moving a few meters further.
Kailasavadivoo Sivan, the head of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), acknowledged the veracity of the allegations, saying “although we have not received any such information from NASA, the person who identified Vikram's wreckage has sent us an email.” Our experts are keeping a close eye on this matter. We can't say anything about this right now.
Shanmuga Subramanian said the January 4 picture showed that Pragya had not been harmed and that Pragya had gone a few meters away from Lander Vikram. We now need to know how the rover became active. And hopefully something will be known about this very soon.
