The Chandrayaan-3 mission not only put our nation's flag on the Moon, but also showcased Indian strength in science and technology. Right now the Vikram lander and the Pragyan rover are in sleep mode as the lunar night is ongoing. However, scientists believe that the mission can further commence on September 22, if ISRO manages to wake them up.

The Chandrayaan-3 mission has already surpassed its expected goals and if the mission continues further then it will be another big achievement for India as well as the ISRO scientists.

PM Narendra Modi added, “Across the world, when such an achievement is made, it is viewed by linking it to modernity, science and technology. When this capability comes before the world, several opportunities and possibilities knock at the doors of India."

Chandrayaan-3 mission discoveries

During the 14-day course, the lander and the rover made significant discoveries that stunned scientists. According to ISRO, the Vikram lander was able to measure the temperature of the Moon's surface which was as high as 60-70 degrees. This was unexpected as it was some 30 degrees higher than what scientists expected. Below the surface, it dipped to -10 degrees. The mission also found the presence of Sulphur along with other elements. The Vikram lander recorded seismic activities on the Moon which came as a surprise for many. Additionally, ISRO also conducted a hop experiment in which the lander rose 40 cm above the lunar ground and landed again.
