New Delhi:

Chandrayaan-3’s lander Vikram will go to sleep mode on the moon, India’s space agency ISRO said today, hours after announcing that it had exceeded its mission by “landing on moon, again”.

“Vikram Lander is set into sleep mode around 08:00 Hrs. IST today. Prior to that, in-situ experiments by ChaSTE, RAMBHA-LP and ILSA payloads are performed at the new location. The data collected is received at the Earth. Payloads are now switched off. Lander receivers are kept ON. Vikram will fall asleep next to Pragyan once the solar power is depleted and the battery is drained. Hoping for their awakening, around September 22, 2023,” tweeted ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation).

ISRO also shared images of the “moon hop”

The rover Pragyan, which rolled out of the lander upon Chandrayaan’s moon landing, is already in sleep mode.
