Chandrayaan 2: NASA helping ISRO to establish communication with Vikram lander
In the wake of the apparent crash of India's Chandrayaan-2 lunar lander, NASA and U.S. companies are looking for insights to inform their own moon shots.
“Nasa will share any before and after flyover imagery of the area around the targeted Chandrayaan-2 Vikram Lander landing site to support analysis by the Indian Space Research Organization"

Just a reminder to folks that on its way to putting this lander down, India did successfully put its second spacecraft in orbit at the Moon. Chandrayaan-2 orbiter will be up there doing science for a year. Lander would only have lasted 2 weeks.
Congrats to @isro on the launch of Chandrayaan 2, a mission to study the Moon. We're proud to support your mission comms using our Deep Space Network and look forward to what you learn about the lunar South pole where we will send astronauts on our #Artemis mission in a few years
