, prickly, haloed bloom is tattooed on a distant field of pock-marked desolation: the silent portrait of a thwarted dream.

This arresting Nasa image, released on December 3, shows the precise spot on the Moon's surface where Vikram, the lander deployed in India's Chandrayaan-2 mission, hard-landed in early September.

Vikram went incommunicado shortly before its scheduled touchdown near the lunar south pole. A tense nation watched as the Isro control room's mood of cheerful anticipation evaporated. The prime minister was on hand to offer words of comfort.

"Despite the loss, getting that close to the surface was an amazing achievement," Nasa said in a statement describing the new images of the Vikram impact site.
