The world's first attempt to land on the South Pole of the Moon, and the remains of an Indian unmanned spacecraft that lost communication just before landing were found on the moon.

In July, India launched the unmanned spacecraft "Chandrayan 2" aiming for the world's first lunar landing in the South Pole, and attempted landing in September.

However, just before landing, when I descended to an altitude of 2.1 km, communication suddenly stopped, and then the situation was unknown.

The US NASA Aeronautics and Space Administration announced on March 3 that it had discovered the remains of an Indian probe in a photo taken by the US probe on the moon.

According to it, the debris was scattered over a wide area from the place where the Indian spacecraft seemed to have collided.

The Indian government reported to the parliament last week that a malfunction occurred while the spacecraft was decelerating for landing, and it collided about 500 meters away from the planned landing point without sufficient deceleration. The survey results are revealed.

If India succeeded in landing this time, it was the fourth country after the former Soviet Union, the United States, and China, but the Antarctic of the Moon was expected to be difficult due to the topography and the harsh environment of minus 157 degrees or less .
