In a statement, Nasa said it released a mosaic image of the site on Sept 26 but taken on Sept 17 , inviting the public to compare it with images of the same area before the crash to find signs of the lander. The first person to come up with a positive identification was Shanmuga "Shan" Subramanian, a year-old IT professional from Chennai, who told Agence France-Presse that Nasa's inability to find the lander on its own had sparked his interest. Nasa then performed additional searches in the area and officially announced the finding almost two months later.
