“India took a walk on the moon” says ISRO as Rover Pragyan rolls on

On Thursday, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said that all Chandrayaan-3 Mission related activities were on schedule and that all systems were functioning normally.

As the country celebrated its new scientific accomplishment on Thursday, the Indian space officials said that Lunar rover ‘Pragyan’ slid down a ramp from the lander of India’s spacecraft within hours of its historic touch-down near the moon’s south pole.


The state-run Indian Space Research Organization, while adding that the Chandrayan-3 Rover will be conducting experiments over 14 days, along with an analysis of the mineral composition of the lunar surface, said that India took a walk on the moon.

ISRO posted a tweet on ‘X’ that read, “Chandrayaan-3 Mission: All activities are on schedule. All systems are normal. Lander Module payloads ILSA, RAMBHA and ChaSTE are turned ON today. Rover mobility operations have commenced. SHAPE payload on the Propulsion Module was turned ON on Sunday.”
