The Chandrayaan-3 mission is a follow-up mission to Chandrayaan-2, which was launched in 2019. The mission aims to soft-land a lander and rover on the lunar surface. The lander, Vikram, and the rover, Pragyan, are named after the Sanskrit words for “victory” and “wisdom” respectively.

The Vikram lander successfully soft-landed on the lunar surface on August 23, 2023. The Pragyan rover was then deployed from the lander and began its operations on the lunar surface on August 24, 2023.

The image of the Vikram lander captured by the Pragyan rover is a significant milestone for the Chandrayaan-3 mission. It shows that the lander and rover are both functioning as expected and that the mission is on track to achieve its objectives.

The image has also been met with excitement and praise from the scientific community. It is a reminder of the amazing achievements of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and a testament to the country’s growing capabilities in space exploration.
