Chandrayaan-3’s Pragyan Rover Begins Walk on Moon, Confirms ISRO: Latest News On Chandrayaan-3.

On Thursday, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) announced that the Pragyan Rover had initiated its exploration on the surface of the moon. Via X (previously known as Twitter), ISRO conveyed that the Chandrayaan-3 Mission’s rover, named Chandrayaan-3 Rover, has commenced its mobility on the lunar terrain under the supervision of MOX and ISTRAC.

Earlier today, ISRO also made available photos taken by the Lander Imager Camera moments before the spacecraft touched down on the moon.

ISRO published a message on X saying, “Here is how the Lander Imager Camera captured the moon’s image just prior to touchdown. India became the first nation to land a spacecraft on the unexplored lunar South Pole on Wednesday night with the Chandrayaan-3 lander, “Vikram,” which had travelled into space for 40 days.

India was the fourth country, after the US, Russia, and China, to successfully complete a lunar landing mission. Additionally, the nation has made history by landing safely on the moon’s south pole.

Prior to its landing, the Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft adjusted its orientation to become horizontal, facilitating the safe touchdown of the Vikram lander on the moon’s surface.

On July 14, the spacecraft was launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.

The spacecraft was launched on August 5 into lunar orbit using a GSLV Mark 3 (LVM 3) heavy-lift launch vehicle, and it underwent a series of orbital movements before settling on the moon’s surface.
