WASHINGTON, March 10 - India�s first lunar probe � the Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft � which was considered lost, is still orbiting the Moon, NASA scientists have found by using a new ground-based radar technique.

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) lost communication with Chandrayaan-1 on August 29, 2009, almost a year after it was launched on October 22, 2008.

Now, scientists at NASA�s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California have successfully located the spacecraft still circling some 200 km above the lunar surface. � PTI
