After Chennai-based techie Shanmuga Subramanian (also known as Shan) discovered the Chandrayaan 2’s Vikram lander on the surface of the moon, many of the headlines seemed to gloss over the fact.
While it cannot be said that he was not credited him for his find, many said that he had “helped” NASA find the lander, or that the space body had discovered the missing lander.
Indeed, even NASA had tweeted earlier saying that “the #Chandrayaan2 Vikram lander has been found by our @NASAMoon mission, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.”
Now, Anand Mahindra has taken to Twitter to call out those who he believes are not giving due credit to Subramanian.
On Tuesday morning Subramanian had tweeted stating that NASA had credited him “for finding Vikram Lander on Moon’s surface”.
