NASA finds India’s first lunar probe lost since 2009

Chandrayaan-1, India’s first unmanned spacecraft to the moon, considered “lost” since 2009 has been found orbiting the moon by NASA’s radar technology. Chandrayaan-1 was launched on October 22, 2008, but the mission concluded on August 29, 2009, when ISRO lost contact with the spacecraft. The lunar probe, however, holds no current operational significance as it doesn’t transmit any data.
