New Delhi: United States space agency NASA's lunar probe will fly over the landing site of Chandryaan-2's Vikram Lander on the Moon on Tuesday, September 17. New information regarding the condition of the lander is expected from this expedition.

NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter will try to locate India’s Vikram lander on the moon during a flyover of the landing site Tuesday, Noah Petro, LRO’s project scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center told spaceflightnow.com.

The lunar probe will also release the images taken of Vikram lander, to help the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) carry out their attempts to restore communication with the lander.

"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 Organisation," said Petro.
