DWQA QuestionsCategory: Physical UniverseIndia’s Vikram moon lander that lost contact with its controllers was presumed to have crash-landed, but no wreckage has been sighted. What happened to leave no visible traces?
Nicola Staff asked 3 months ago

This was a malfunction engineered to happen to cause lack of response to the controllers so there was a high-speed collision with the planet and this is the reason there is not an immediate apparent signature. It was in a location that masks the visibility from the angles of view of probes that are available to look at the terrain at present. This is searchable and locatable if this becomes a priority to establish.
