The Chandrayaan-3 lander is a spacecraft that was launched by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on July 14, 2023. It is the third lunar mission of India and the first to land near the Moon’s south pole.
The Pragyaan rover is the world’s first rover to land on the Moon’s south pole. It was deployed from the Chandrayaan-3 lander on August 24, 2023. The rover is about the size of a microwave oven and weighs 26 kilograms. It is powered by solar energy and has a range of about 500 meters and is equipped with a variety of instruments, including a camera, a spectrometer, and a magnetometer.
The name “Pragyan” means “wisdom” in Sanskrit. The Pragyaan rover is designed to explore the lunar south pole, which is thought to be home to large deposits of water ice. The rover will spend the next two weeks exploring the south pole, looking for water ice and other signs of life. It will also collect data that will help scientists to plan future missions to the Moon.
The Pragyaan rover is a small but important step in our journey to explore the Moon. Its mission will help us to learn more about this fascinating world and its potential for future human exploration.
