New Delhi: ISRO Chief K Sivan rejected NASA’s claim over locating the debris of the crashed Vikram lander.
ISRO chief K Sivan has said, “Our own orbiter had located Vikram lander. We had already declared that on our website, you can go back and see.”
Three days after Vikram lander crashed on the lunar surface, on September 10, ISRO had tweeted, “Vikram Lander has been located by the orbiter of Chandrayaan 2, but no communication with it yet. All possible efforts are being made to establish communication with lander.”
