Indian Engineer Credited For Finding Vikram Moonlander's Debris
"Its debris was first discovered by Shanmug about 750m north-west of the crash site and this was its only clear picture," NASA said in a statement. “Shanmuga Subramanian contacted the LRO project with a positive identification of debris. After receiving this tip, the LROC [LRO Camera] team confirmed the identification by comparing before and after images,” the statement said.
