NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has captured an image of India's Chandrayaan-3 lunar lander, which successfully touched down near the Moon's south pole on August 23. The NASA probe captured the image on August 27, four days after the mission's historic landing. Chandrayaan-3 is the first mission ever to land close to the relatively unexplored lunar south pole which is believed to harbor huge amounts of water ice.
