Nasa says one of its satellites has found the debris of India's Moon rover which crashed on the lunar surface in September. The space agency released a picture showing the site of the rover's impact and the "associated debris field". Nasa has credited an Indian engineer, Shanmuga Subramanian, with helping locate the site of the debris.

Mr Subramanian examined a Nasa picture and located the first debris about 750m north-west of the crash site. Many people had downloaded the image released by Nasa's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) team, a statement by the space agency said. It said after receiving Mr Subramanian's tip about the location of the debris, the LROC team "confirmed the identification by comparing before and after images".

Nice work. Almost like looking for new comets.

Indians are VERY good at finding random crashed/shot-down flying vehicles:


See? Crowds gather in minutes to look at whatever fell out of the sky.

Something tells me they will get better at it as time goes by.

Until a few days ago, Indian media and their space guys were peddling this pic....


.... pretending that "it's intact, just can't call home but we'll get that fixed too!"... it took NASA and this private Indian soace hobbyist to tell them, no buddy.. it's in a million pieces. Hell, even a blind person can see that's a cartoon image. LOL
