Chennai techie finds Vikram lander, bullet train under review and Sudan tanker blast

Nearly three months back, Vikram, the lander of India’s second lunar exploration mission, Chandrayaan-2, had crashed on the moon’s surface. On Monday, NASA announced that its remains had now been found with the help of an unlikely source – a thirty-three year old software programmer from Chennai named Shanmuga Subramanian. In this segment, Amitabh Sinha, who writes on science and environment for the Indian Express, explains how exactly did Subramanian manage to find Vikram and whether ISRO already knew its location. Next, Avishek Dastidar, who reports on the Railways for the Indian Express, talks about the latest hiccup in the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project and whether the new Maharashtra government can impact it. And last, how atleast 8 Indian workers were killed and over 130 others injured in an LPG tanker blast at a ceramic factory in Sudan.
