India’s Chandrayaan-3 mission rover that landed on the South Pole of the Moon has been ‘slapped’ for some time.
According to the Indian Space Research Agency (ISRO), Chandrayaan-3’s Pragyaan rover has completed its assignments and experiments after which its sleep mode was enabled.
The Pragyan rover traveled 100 meters on the lunar surface over 11 days and detected various metals including sulfur and oxygen.
According to ISRO, the rover is being deactivated in keeping with the onset of night on the moon while its data is transferred to Earth by the Vikram lander.
According to the Indian Space Agency, the Chandrayaan 3 mission’s battery is fully charged and the solar panel will be able to provide light with the onset of day on the moon on September 22.
Although the Vikram lander and the Pragyan rover were designed for a 14-day life on the moon, ISRO expects that both of them will wake up again with the start of a new day on the moon.
Even if that doesn’t happen, the mission will remain there as India’s lunar ambassador.
If you don’t know, know that one lunar night is equal to 14 Earth days.
The Pragyan rover and the Vikram lander will be deprived of sunlight when lunar night begins on September 7.
Both of them are solar powered so it will not be possible for them to continue working.
It may be noted that the Chandrayaan 3 mission was launched on July 14, remained in Earth orbit for 10 days after launch, and after successfully entering lunar orbit on August 5, successfully landed at the South Pole of the Moon on August 23. had gone.
After the success of the mission, India became the fourth country in the world to make a soft landing on the Moon and the first country to reach the South Pole of the Moon.
