Next on Chandrayaan-3 mission

Now, that the lander has safely landed on the Moon's surface, the next big step for the mission is the 26kg rover trundling on the surface of the Moon to study the atmosphere. It is moving at the speed of 1 centimetre per second. The instruments installed will also be used to study lunar rocks and soil and the navigation camera on the rover will scan the surface.

The Pragyan rover has two payloads: APXS -- Alpha Particle X-Ray Spectrometer and -Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscope (LIBS). Each will perform different tasks in studying the moon's surface. The APXS will analyze the chemical and mineral composition to collect more comprehensive information about the lunar surface. On the other hand, LIBS will study the soil and rock composition near the landing site.

For 14 days, the rover will be actively roaming around the surface and will give the scientist insights into all the collected data.

ISRO posted this on X, “Chandrayaan-3 ROVER: Made in India, Made for the MOON! The Ch-3 Rover ramped down from the Lander and India took a walk on the moon! More updates soon”.
