ISRO Awaits Potential ‘Awakening’ of Chandrayaan-3 Rover and Lander on September 22


ISRO on Monday announced that Chandryaan-3 mission’s Vikram lander mission has been successfully placed in a dormant state.

The Pragyan rover was placed into sleep mode on Saturday.

“Vikram Lander is set into sleep mode around 08:00 Hrs. IST (8 am) 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,” ISRO said in an update on X.

The payloads were switched off and the “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,” the space agency said.

ISRO Chief S. Somanath had previously mentioned that the rover and lander of the lunar mission would be set to ‘sleep’ mode to endure the lunar night.
