Astronaut Fred Haise, Buzz Aldrin’s backup for Apollo 11, describes the Mission Control during the Moon landing.

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, was not in a position to be able to spot India’s Vikram moonwalker-during a flyby of the landing on the moon’s surface this week.

“LRO was flying over the area of the Vikram a touchdown on Sept. 17, when the local lunar time, it was near dusk; a great shadow covered a large part of the area,” a NASA spokesman told Fox News, via e-mail. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) acquired images around the intended landing site, but the exact location of the lander, it was not known, so the date can’t be in the camera’s field of view.”

NASA’s LROC team is analyzing the new images, and compare them with the previous ones, the spokesman explained, noting that Vikram might be in the shade or out of the mapped area. “LRO will be the next to fly over the land on the 14th of October, when the lighting conditions will be more favourable,” he added. “The us will review the results of the Sept. 17 to the overpass, as soon as practicable after the necessary period of time for validation, analysis, and evaluation.”

The Indian Space Research Organization has lost touch with the uncrewed probe when it is in the final stages of an audacious moon-landing attempt on Sunday. 6. Communication with the lander was lost when it was only 1.3 miles from the surface of the moon.

The lander was then spotted on the surface of the moon by the space agency’s Chandrayaan-2 orbiter, and the engineers are working to connect with Vikram. However, they are in a race against the clock to set the date, the six-wheeled Pragyan rover.

INDIA’S MISSING, VIKRAM PROBE ON THE SURFACE OF THE MOON

Vikram and the rover has a life span of a single lunar day, which is equivalent to 14 days on Earth, according to ISRO. This means that the probe is at the end of his life, on Sept. 20.

It is not clear as yet what the damages of the countries to suffer during the season. In the united states, Russia, and China are the only countries to successfully land on the moon.

ISRO’s Chandrayaan-2 orbiter will continue with its mission for over a year.

Of the approximately $140 million for Chandrayaan-2 mission is designed to study the permanently shadowed lunar craters, which are thought to contain water, the deposits of which were secured by the Chandrayaan-1 mission in 2008.

Earlier this year, Israel’s uncrewed Beresheet spaceship crashed during a moon landing attempt.

The Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft will carry the Vikram Lander, was launched from Sriharikota in the southern part of India, on the 22nd of July.

Chandrayaan-1 operated for 312 days.

The moon is high in a number of countries’ space programs. In China, for example, was the first country to successfully land a probe on the other hand, earlier this year, the Chang’e 4 lander reached the moon’s surface on Dec. 2.
