Rover ‘Pragyan’, lander ‘Vikram’ sent that video in the morning, how it slowly came out of its stomach and set foot on the lunar soil. And on Friday evening, ISRO said, exactly how far ‘Pragyan’ has reached the moon’s soil. Besides, the pace of its progress has also been reported by the Indian Space Research Organization. There is no deviation anywhere. India’s third unmanned lunar mission is still progressing according to ISRO’s plan.
India’s Chandrayaan-3 landed on the south pole of the moon surprising the whole world. last wednesday The main work of landing him on the lunar surface started from 5:45 pm that day. The landing process takes a total of 19 minutes. According to the clock, ‘Vikram’ first set foot on the moon’s soil at exactly 6:04 PM. After that sit on the back of the moon and rest for a few hours. After that, a window opened near Vikram’s stomach. Within a few moments, rover ‘Pragyan’ came rolling down through that window. ‘Vikram’ took the video of his falling down. ISRO released that video on Friday morning. In the morning, it was known that the rover has not only landed on the lunar surface, but has also started rolling. ISRO informed that ‘Pragyan’ has crossed a distance of 8 meters. This time it’s time to just move on.
At 6:19 pm Indian time on Friday, the ISRO X (former Twitter) handle said that the rover ‘Pragyan’ has started moving as per the plan. The rover has successfully traversed 8 meters. Pragyan’s payloads ‘LIBS’ and ‘APXS’ have been launched.
The South Pole of the Moon remained unexplored by Earthlings for so long. India was the first spacecraft to land on the South Pole of the Moon. Along with that, India’s name has been included in the ‘elite’ list of successful countries in making a ‘soft landing’ on the moon. Earlier this achievement was held only by America, Russia and China.
After landing on the lunar surface, the rover ‘Pragyan’ has started to do its work. In the evening, ISRO told X that it is proceeding as per the plan. It has already crossed 8 meters on the rocky ground of the moon. However, this walk is not an ordinary walk, as well as a walk, the characteristics of the moon’s soil can be seen in detail. Explore the topography of Earth’s satellites. That indication was also found in ISRO’s message. The Indian Space Research Organization said two payloads have been launched inside Pragyan — LIBS and APXS. Pragyan will walk on the ground of the moon, then what is the function of the payload? APXS, or Alpha Particle X-ray Spectrometer, is designed to scientifically estimate the chemical composition of the moon’s soil and the composition of mineral deposits hidden beneath the surface, experts said. APXS has started doing that work for now. In addition to APXS, there is another payload at work. That is, ‘LIBS’ or ‘Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscope’. This payload will determine the basic composition of the lunar soil and rocks, i.e. magnesium, aluminum, silicon, titanium, and the geochemical composition. When Vikram stepped on the moon, it was just dawn. There will be daylight for the next 14 days according to Earth time. During this time, the rover will travel around the lunar surface and collect data. ‘Vikram’ will send that information to Earth. ‘Vikram’ and ‘Pragyan’ will work on solar energy. For the time being, Vikram will remain at the landing site. All messages from India will reach Vikram directly. After that, ‘Vikram’ will automatically select and send that message as needed with the wisdom of the rover on the lunar surface. That is, the scientists sitting on Indian soil will control the rover moving on the lunar soil. Apart from this, ‘Vikram’ can do one more thing – that is to capture every moment of the whole situation. Just as ‘Pragyan’ rolled out of Vikram’s stomach and began to roll down to the lunar soil, he will capture stills and films of the rover’s every-moment movements. In X Handle, ISRO also said that the propulsion module, lander module and all payloads of the rover have gone down. That is, Chandrayaan-3 has started working on the lunar soil as planned by ISRO scientists.
